One my slogans is "If you want it, I can find it"
I'm wondering if I should rethink this and add something else,
like If you can afford it......
Why is it, that buyers call a Realtor with absolutely no clue to what they can afford or where the money will come from.
Why is it that since they haven't worked for over 6 months and their Landlord is throwing them out, they think, "I'm buying my own house"!
I am starting to think that we, as Realtors, may promise a bit too much. We say we can find the dream home, help with finding the right mortgage, start you on your road to the American Dream. We can list and sell your home in less than 20 days and find you a new one in between.
Do you think that maybe people perceive us to be able to do things that are not realistic? Are we exhalting ourselves too much?
I read all the slogans out there. "#1 Real Estate", "Honest John", "Ethical Edward", "Most listings Monique", "Trustful Tom", "Big Barbara Buyer rep", "Sally sells Real Estate", etc., etc. And I have to wonder, maybe we should rephrase our abilities.
I am open to any "rephrasing" ideas. Do you think buyers and sellers see us as unrealistic?
