Living In Service
I cannot adequately put into words how totally impressed I have been with your services as our real estate agent. From the time we first discussed with you our idea to buy a new home in Columbus, you have offered us outstanding representation. You have fed us with all the information we needed to make informed decisions about our new home purchase. And because of you, the whole house hunting experience has been a pleasant one! Now we are excited to close and move into our new home! Thank you so much for all the extra work you put into doing your job….or rather I should say going way above and beyond your job. As far as my husband and I are concerned, there could be no better agent ANYWHERE! We will of course recommend you. Thank you for all your help.
I received this review from a recent client and had to stop for a second. I went above and beyond my job? I don’t think so. What I did for those clients is what I feel is every inch my job. I live in service for others.
Now, living in service for others does not necessarily mean that I take on a subservient role. It’s more about empowering others to make their own decisions with facts and information that I can provide through research and industry knowledge, and being respectful and supportive of those decisions.
It’s hard for me to understand how other Realtors® view the job. It’s not finding or selling a home. The job of a Realtor® is so much more. It’s providing hand holding. It’s guidance and understanding. It’s giving the client the freedom to be a knowledgeable adult.
It is the journey of the Real Estate experience that I am on. It’s not about how quickly I can get the “transaction” done to move on. The authentic individual experience is so necessary to keep the role of the Realtor® essential to the public. When you are competing with cut rate brokerages and resources to “find” the home online, it is essential to provide an intangible value when the tangible value becomes a commodity.
I live in service for others. It is something I have always wanted to do. I strive to make the experience better and provide something beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary. I enjoy helping others. It is beyond the dollar. It is beyond the transaction. It is where the client becomes a part of my extended Real Estate family.
My extended Real Estate family knows it. They understand it. Then they talk about it. Are you receiving an authentic individual Real Estate experience?
