Please, whatever you are passionate about, SHARE IT!

Please, whatever you are passionate about, SHARE IT!

One of the major reasons I became a Realtor was because of the disconnect many agents have with investors.  I was a very aggressive investor at the time, and my agents didn't have a clue what I was doing.  So, instead of dumping them and going on a search for new agents, I educated them.

I promised my first agent that if she would hang with me I would teach her the mechanics of working with a creative investor, and I would only use her.  She took the deal and we bought 4 houses that first two years.  Her son became my attorney at the time, and the process started over again.  He didn't have a clue how to work with someone like me.  So, back to school.  He became my only attorney.

If you are passionate about something, share it!  I had a wonderful young couple in my office Saturday who are interested in buying  a rental property to supplement their income.  Well, you can imagine the pure pleasure I had talking to them.  They have vision but they need a little guidance.  For me, the process is starting over.  I explained to them how we can buy two houses rather than one because two will make up the money they are trying to replace while the she goes back to college.

I explained some of the mechanics of buying property as an investor, and then we discussed how to make being a landlord profitable.  It was a blast.  I love having excited focused clients.  Our quest begins on Wednesday. 

Please, please, please share your specialized knowledge.  You don't know how to work with investors?  No problem.  Maybe you're really good at first-time home-buyers.  You might be good at relocation clients.  You might be a true short sale expert.  That's a huge need today.  You might be good at working with seniors.  Now, there's an up and coming market.  Whatever you're passionate about, SHARE IT! The world will thank you!
