As a Real Estate Professional for over 7 years it still amazes me how much influence co-workers have on perspective buyers and sellers of Real Estate. In completely unrelated fields. But time and again I see buyers remorse, and value objections from sellers because of individuals seeking advise from others at work about what Real Estate tasks they are about to par take.
Ethics and morality govern what a Real Estate Professional advises and not commissions. A professional builds a career and client base by using education and experience. Finding a professional is the chore, not the purchase or sale of a particular property.
If a buyer or seller spends time hiring a professional, and they partner with that professional and trust that professional, they will always make the correct decision every time.
You wouldn't ask your hair stylus to repair your care? So why ask advice from someone that lives in a house by has no Real Estate education?
