Broker's Corner: August 5
YOUR AGENT SHOULD BE KNOWLEDGABLE -- AN UNDERSTATEMENT! Last week found me in the mountains of North Carolina and in the back seat of a Realtor’s car doing what we in our business love: looking at property. Miss Paige was up front conversing with and asking questions of our driver. Although not my style, I sat mostly quiet in the back seat observing and listening.
What came clear in this experience was a reminder that we Realtors are not just tour-guides, but professionals in our market place and valuable to our customers and clients. An old broker buddy once told me of his learning curve with young bucks he hired out of college when computers and electronic data bases were first being used in our industry. He said, “Roland, these fellas taught me we’re not really in the real estate business; we’re in the information business.” True that! Our agent this past week was chock full of pertinent information about the properties we had viewed. She also was able to decipher our needs even when we weren’t sure of them ourselves.
Some agents talk a lot; others talk very little. Whatever the style, the information better
Our crew of knowledgeable agents will help you understand the Coastal Georgia marketplace. Whether you plan to spend a little time here or full time here, we want you to see the big picture. Helping you shorten the learning curve is our first goal. Helping you make an informed decision is our ultimate goal. If you’re as happy with your purchase or sale 6 months after it occurred, then we’ve been successful! Call me or any our Roland Daniel Properties sales associates; we’re here to make your experience on St. Simons and surrounding areas great.
We didn’t buy on this trip, but we came home with a much better understanding of what we want and what that market holds for us.
A pleasant trip, indeed.
Roland L. Daniel
