Hey, guess what? In case you didn’t know the economy is bad. There, now we are all caught up and on the same page. In spite of that, most of us still have bills to pay and need to put food on the table. It doesn’t matter if the economy is good or bad, there are some things that never change, there will always be people buying homes and there will always be people selling homes. For people in real estate it is important to be part of that process, even in a “Bad” economy.
I do not believe people are good at “cutting back” in a poor economy, I do believe that people expect their money to do more. They are working harder to make it, they expect us to do the same! As the housing market improves, the realtors who realize this are the ones who are surpassing the client’s expectations and giving them more value for the dollar. Exceeding a client’s expectation is completely voluntary, there is no formula, or book, or class it is just a decision one needs to make. The important thing to remember is not to stop. Today’s excellence is tomorrow’s norm.
