Become a Change Agent

[dropcap character=”Y” color=”green”]

You are reading this article because you are considering a career change or a change to another brokerage. You have found a professional resume writing service to help you and now you’re ready to begin that job search. You want more and something better, something exciting which offers hope and new potential. I want you to consider more than just a change in environment and structure – let’s change the manner of real estate in our local communities. [space5]

It’s time to let ‘Old School’ ways die out!

Recently I received an email from one of our Realtors® that expressed very well what I have come to believe:

[blockquote]”I think there are some ‘old school’ agents that consider real estate a combative occupation, and they take everything as a threat or an insult.”[/blockquote][space5]

I will add that for some Realtors® the goal is conquest over other agents or offices, and the idea that “I must decisively win, and you must decisively lose.” Competition is about “us vs them.” For some, every difficulty is a call to war and every offense received is another memory in their arsenal stored for future use. It is not enjoyable to work with such people; well let’s just say it, it is miserable and taxing! It is also not good for our industry or our clients.

This same Realtor® continued,

[blockquote]”I hope in the years to come Bella Casa Real Estate Group can not only have a different culture in our office, but I hope that we can also affect other brokerages and cause them to be more willing to work together for the good of all of our clients and the community.” [/blockquote][space5]

We need to work diligently to create and maintain a professional manner and courtesy that becomes second nature. We must nurture this in our own workplace but also cultivate it anywhere in the community of Realtors® where there is fertile ground. Let me suggest some characteristics that I hope you will commit yourself to as you consider changes for the future of your business:
