Extra Extra – The Realtor Dirt – Read All About It!


One of my extended Active Rain friends invited me to participate in a contest to “tell all the real estate dirt” you know.  This contest is similar to pilots telling things about what you do not hear about your flight, only this is what is the dirt that buyers and sellers are not aware of, what Realtors do not tell you about Real Estate?

Smart Phones & Realtors, Endre Barath


There is a lot to tell. Here is one that many people are not aware of:  most Realtors have smart phones and they take the phones with them EVERYWHERE – the bathroom, beside their bed – and obsessively and compulsively check their emails. Why you may ask? Well the reasons are many and varied, here are just a few examples, at least my own personal reasons J


1.       They might have client who either lives in or is traveling to a different time zone.


2.       They sent out an answer to a question and are waiting for the inquirer’s response.


3.       They just sent out an offer on DocuSign and are waiting for the Buyer to sign the offer.


4.       They just sent out a listing and are waiting for the Seller to sign the Listing Agreement.


5.       They are waiting for a time sensitive Counter Offer.


Realtors love to go on vacation. What is so unusual about that? Generally when a Realtor goes on vacation, they can be assured that all of a sudden they will very busy, all their clients want to write offers. Potential clients want proposals of the value of their properties. So if a Realtor wants to get busy all he or she has to do is a plan vacationJ.


If the Realtor is not on vacation, rather planning get-togethers to develop relationships with business associates or other agents to develop referral relationships, again you can be guaranteed that will insure that an out-of-state or out-of-country potential buyer comes into town and as a relocation client, the Realtor has to be ready to take care of the needs of that relocating Buyer. There goes attending the “get-together”.


Finally, what motivates a Realtor to do all these things? Why not just have set hours? I suspect the answer is hidden in the DNA of a Realtor, they simply want to do their best for their clients.  And one of the most important ways to do that is to be available during the client’s timeframe.
