Finding new blood

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens The Masiello Group

There will come a day when we need more agents in this industry, again. True, those of us still around selling real estate are thrilled to see the number of agents in our region has greatly reduced, but before long we will be seeing new agents entering our field and some may actually be doing alright.

Who will do alright in the new world of real estate evolving around us? I believe it will be people who can produce real-time real estate transactions and communicate with clients at a speed we've never before experienced.

It is my own experience that a certain demographic of clients this past year has demanded speedier responses as they seek the answers they need from whatever source will be the quickest.

As we evolve into the Generation Y era of first time buyers, the agents best able to connect with this demographic will likely strengthen their business.  There will always be a need for honest, reliable and experienced agents so I don't see that changing at all, but the roles we plan may shift a bit from the know-all do-all agent to becoming more of a process counselor.  For so many who have never navigated through the waters of their first real estate purchase, this will help them sort out the emotions from the business portion of purchasing their first home.

The changing market will bring great opportunities to new people that enter the field with internet marketing savvy. To many of the existing agents are resisting changes that they must make to be competitive.
