Absolutely.  We can throw a wide net over any profession ... but how one operates is where the difference gets defined.

Yes I do & I like how you phrased it. We should incorporate that into more things that the public can read.

Forget about the zany NAR ads, this is what a client pays for.

Maybe it is techincally right but of course the issue is that their is no standard of practive in our prfession far from it. If you are great as well as unique you stand out like Mante Bol does in a crowd.

I was aware that our unique knowledge is our property and of course our expertise is what we offer our clients. Unfortunately, the high turn over in this business means that far too many real estate agents lack this expertise and experience and their clients suffer.

Yes! I have spent more than 20 years gathering knowledge, plying my craft, getting better and better at what I do professionally.

Yet…so many of my clients, and the public in general,  think they know more than I do about real estate because their family member or friend or the internet taught them all there is to know about real estate.

You bet, Richie! I think we begin our careers, trying anything and everything. Once we determine what works for us, we build upon those assets. You can't put a price on knowledge but, you can put a price on the delivery of that knowledge.

I would suggest a big difference in outcomes is experienced between the one who markets '30 Years experience' and the one who markets "I have 27 houses for sale not found on Zillow."

If intellectual property does not equate to SOLUTIONS, there is nothing to sell.
