It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post and, honestly, I have been tremendously busy. There is a reason that I have titled this post “Drinking From A Fire Hose:” please allow me to explain. This has been my unofficial theme since beginning my career with Century 21 Beal in Bryan/College Station after school ended. In my first training this phrase was mentioned by our instructor, referring to the immense amount of “have to’s” that was literally spewing from her mouth. Each water drop a task that I had to accomplish; each water drop accumulating into a massive geyser that was trying to drown me. But, as we all know, at some point the water has to run out, right?
The thing is, although most of the water escaped, I was able to quench my thirst. What I mean to say is that I have learned a great deal of information in the past couple of weeks. There are so many facets to being a real estate professional that I was unaware of. Real Estate agents do not just drive people around all day, they work hard! Agents have to be social militants, rapid analyzers, risk managers, financial advisors, and genuinely good people.
Luckily, Century 21 has many tools to help bring sellers and buyers together, and I would like to explain how coupling these tools with a good agent can help customers. When a seller lists his/her home with a Century 21 agent, they are put into all of the Century 21 systems. Now, neither you nor I have the time to cover all of them, but one very important tool is called Leadrouter. This system puts prospective buyers from the internet (and guess where almost all buyers begin their search) in touch with an agent immediately. For the seller, this means that a potential buyer of his home is speaking with an agent at the peak of interest. Pretty neat huh? But this tool is also beneficial to the buyer as well–how many times have you seen a listing in the Brazos Valley that didn’t answer all of your questions? Well, with Leadrouter you will be able to speak to a Real Estate Professional as soon as you submit your contact information. This system when used with voicepad, golden ruler, realbiz360, and a lot more will surely result in fewer days on the market for sellers and provide buyers with instant information about properties they are interested in the Bryan/College Station area.
Thankfully, by having access to these beneficial tools, learning daily about local market trends, collaborating with brilliant minds in real estate, and absolutely enjoying what I do, I have my first listing! Stay thirsty–I will.
