As are professional (full time) real estate agent I've learned more about myself than I have about anything else. One major thing I've learned is 90% of the earth inhabitants are really good people. I've been very fortunate to have created many long term relationships with my clients that have gone beyond real estate. The transaction is such a small portion of both of our lives, yet there is so much more to both of us. I've enjoyed the most the friends I've made. People who at one time only knew me as a real estate agent, but today we have dinner with our families, share thoughts on life and of course I still help them with their concerns on the market. Real estate for me is more about completing transactions, it's about broadening myself as a person and meeting numerous amounts of friends along the way.
I actually have other interests besides Real Estate, I have two kids and a lovely wife. We've enjoyed living in Phoenix for the past 15 years, we moved from Erie Pennsylvania to get out of the snow. As soon as we finished college we moved here and it's been a good decision for us. We still miss family and friends and the food. I don't know what it is but food back east just has more character than food out west.
My newest hobby is horse racing. We bought our first thoroughbred and enjoy the sport emensly. Proud Blue Ridge is her name and she has become like an additional family member. Except she doesnt live with us, she lives in the stables at the track, but we consider her family non the less.
What makes me better than most other agents? My understanding of the bigger picture. What do I mean? Anyone with a little effort can show a property or take a listing, but what do they know about how this transaction affects not only their cleint's bottom line but their life and life style. Everyone is different and every ones needs are different, a good agent finds those out and applies them to the transaction. Yes I want to get them the best deal and the smoothest transaction I can but I want to know where will this person be in one year, five years, ten years. I'd much rather risk spending too much time with a client, than for them to make a purchase they'll regret in the future. I want to be able to see them at a later date and for them to still be just as excited about their home than the day they moved in. Sometimes clients are concerned about the under taking of this transaction, you need to make sure they are at ease and find both what they are looking for now, but will also be happy with in the future.
