Broker's Opens or the importance of working together as a team

By
Industry Observer with Environment Control MLO#109666

Hello all: I hope you're enjoying your evening. Today I attended and helped Yuno Morioni of Coldwell Banker Bain with a Broker's Open House she was having in Bothell. It's a beautiful home and, if priced right, should sell.

It got me to thinking how important it is for all of us to work together as a team. Yuno's title rep. came by and we chatted. The closer our relationships with all parties, the better off we all are. I don't know about you but I feel good when I know I'm surrounded by top-notch, dedicated people I can trust. Case in point. I'm embarking on teaching an 8 week series of classes with Rebecca Haas of Re/Max Metro. Realty next week. Although we've never worked together before, I can tell we're excited about bringing value to our customers. Reba's team is  excellent and I'm glad we can collaborate on this.

My point is this. At times I've witnessed negative attitudes and finger-pointing between realtors, loan officers, appraisers, etc. Thank God most of the time I've seen everyone working together. Remember what this is ultimately about; it's about our customer. Let's never forget this. We're only as strong as each of our links.

I encourage all of you to continue building long-term relationships that further everyone's business. I'm a huge college basketball fan. The funny thing is the most talented players don't always win. This year, North Carolina is probably the favorite. They have great depth and talent. But watch out for Michigan State or someone else like Villanova who play together as a team. Ultimately, those are the teams that win it all. Have a nice night!

Well put.  We do need to work together.  In the end it makes us all (and our profession) look better to the consumer.

Great post Paul.  If we would take the energy that we use to point fingers instead of figuring out a solution, us and our clients would be so much better off.  I never call a client with a problem but a solution.  We have to check our egos at the door in this career that we have chosen.

Paul: This is a great spirit of cooperation piece. All thos mentioned ar mutually dependent upon each other for their livelyhoods. Good advice.

It's imperative to have some good contacts in other specialty areas.  I consider it especially important to have a reliable lender with competitive products and a desire to serve the client's best interests.

Sounds like you're on the right track.... keep it up.

Cheers,

Cameron: Thanks for your thoughts. I appreciate your input. Have a great day!

Matt: Thank you. It's a lot easier to cooperate than be at loggerheads!

Shawn: I like the part about checking our ego at the door. The minute we get too big headed is the minute we're in trouble! Take care.

Renee: One thing I like about this challenging time is the true professionals are emerging. And that's good for the customer!
