If someone asks, I'll tell them.  It's been over 10 years at this point in case anyone cares.

The most important thing is how effective you are as a realtor.  I think people tend not to ask if they're confident in the realtor's abilities, though some people may ask out of curiosity.

At times. We take the view that we are no better than our next transaction, so to fall back on the years in the business is dicta depending on the client we are speaking, or writing .

Debbie Reynolds I usually tell potential clients, I've been doing this business for a long time. I believe there is a level of comfort with experienced agents. New agents who don't have the experience should partner with an agent who is experienced and capitalize their experience.

I recently saw a shirt that had a skeleton of a dog and underneath it said" in dog years I would be dead" so no I don't talk about my age but they can judge by my years of exoerience and the way I handle myself with clients.

Personally I think clients appreciate knowing if someone they are working with has been working in their field for more than a day, so it is good to let them know that you have the experience and ability to take good care of them.

That said though, I know that from personal experience, when a Realtor tells me how many years they've been in the business within their first 2-3 sentences of speaking with them (and in many cases tells you their years of experience mutiple times in that conversation) then 95% of the time, that means they will be awful to work with.

As Debbie said earlier too, just because you may have had a license for 10, 20, 100 years, that doesn't necessarily mean that you are experienced in the business or are equipped to handle the needs of a particular transaction.  Every sale is unique with it's own set of challenges and needs.
