I agree with Deborah. We are professionals and we need to show our professionalism to the public. At the same time we should share all of our worries and thought in this business so we can help each other or learn from each other to sharpen our skills and enrich our knowledge. The more knowledge we have the better service we can provide to the clients the better of our image will be. Public often have mislead and wrongful thought about REALTORS because some of unethical, seasoned agents did not know that they were conducting their own business than just a part time job to find extra money.
Of course we are working to earn a living but if we show the clients how much resourceful we are then they will respect our advice and from there we will have the chance to work with them easier. We are real estate consultant not real estate sharks or blood sucking vampires in the eyes of the public.
I see the Realtor's blog is a good place to show public who we really are, what we know and why they should work with Realtors so we can show them how we help them make profit. Give them what they want then we can have what we want. :))... more
