  • The Weltanschaung of my Real Estate Business is clear!

     The Weltanschaung of my Real Estate Business is clear:  it is my business philosophy.  Having lived in Germany and Austria for approximately 8 years and graduating with a BA in German, I have a clear understanding of the literal translation - Weltanschaung is: View of the World.

    View of the World: business style, Endre Barath Beverly Hills Realtor

    My business philosophy has always been simply stated:  I treat my clients as I want to be treated, PERIOD!  When you come to me, you get a Trusted Advisor.

    This is a very high standard to achieve, because I do not tolerate incompetence or lack of business knowledge; and I expect a fast (when possible), courteous and professional response when I have a question or concern. This is my expectation be it from restaurants, hotels, internet providers, telephone providers, escrow officers, title officers, attorneys or any other service provider. My expectations are high, hence I provide the best possible service to the best of my abilities that I expect as a client.

    If you break down my Real Estate Practice then you will know that it consists of:  superb client service, availability via email, phone or face-to-face, time management, punctuality, respect of other people’s time, knowledge of inventory, prices, and the nuances of the various micro real estate markets within the Greater Los Angeles area from Malibu to the Mountains. I also strive to understand the cultural differences of my clients since my clientele ranges from Europe, Asia, the Middle East to North America. Additionally, my goal is to provide the skill set for a smooth and successful negotiation taking into consideration all of the above-mentioned criteria.

    I strive for Perfection. Never the  less I clearly understand that perfection is an impossible state to achieve.

    Coach John Wooden said it best: “…Striving for perfection is not an impossibility. Do the best you can under the conditions that exist….”

    I am always optimistic that the results will be favorable for my clients and I do not mean that in a naïve way. I believe in positive energy, which in turn will accomplish the desired results. Realistically, things do not always seem to head towards the right direction and there may be bumps on the road to the objective.  I do not overreact, rather I revisit the course of actions we need to take to achieve the objective. This part I attribute to my military background of being an Airborne Ranger Infantry person. I like to plan ahead but know how to modify the directions and the plans on an as needed basis.

    I also believe that no property is too small or too big for me to handle. As far as I am concerned, all transactions are important!

  • How could we conduct business without the Internet in today's Global Society?

    Posted Under: How To... in Los Angeles  |  August 19, 2011 1:05 PM  |  690 views  |  2 comments

    How could we conduct business without the Internet in today's Global Society? I was contemplating this question after I lost my Blackberry as I was traveling overseas in the past winter.

    I had a lot on my mind and the belt holster with said Smartphone fell off my belt without me noticing it. (In all fairness I have an excuse: Living in Southern California, I have been spoiled by wearing a shirt and Dockers, or Blue Jeans for years and was not used to a bulky sweater, Dow-winter coat and Isotoner gloves)

    After I retraced the two places where it could have fallen, I had to concede that it was gone. (Friends and acquaintances wanted to take me out to lunch) I had to excuse myself since it was critical for me to rush to a landline and call Diane about my misfortune. After the 5am slightly panicked call to her.... she immediately started the ball rolling. Verizon and the insurance carrier jumped right on it as well. The SIM card deactivation and whatever internal actions they had to do start the process of preventing unauthorized use and provide me with a replacement phone began.

    The Short story is: there was a new equivalent version of my old BB World Edition 8830 on its way to Hungary. That was the good news. The bad news was I was without the address book that I have been accumulating over the past 10 years.

    Now to answer my original question: How could we conduct business without the internet? I have been so spoiled for the past few years. I have been texting my clients, my friends and Diane to mention a few. Alternatively I have been e-mailing, clients, prospects and potential buyers and sellers. The BB was a great bridge to the time when I would get to an internet Wi-Fi hotspot and respond in detail to the requests. As  I was negotiating an offer and was in the process of writing an offer and at the same time trying to close an Escrow 6000 plus miles away from sunny California, the answer was clear to me. We cannot function without the Internet as well as the equipment which accommodates this communication vehicle.
