These Days, Giving 100% Just Isn't Enough.


Craig Rutman, your Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Realtor knows that if I can expect you to hire me, I'm going to have to give MORE than 100% of my effort to you.


Yeah. Yeah. I know what you're thinking.

"Craig, have you finally gone off the deep end?"

Well, my dear readers, indulge me for a moment if you will.

In my opinion giving 100% is the minimum required just to stay in

business these days.

Buyers and sellers expect us to give 100% of our effort in getting their home

sold, or helping them in the purchase of a new one.

We need to be giving more than 100% if we can expect a client to hire us.

Real Estate is a service oriented business, and these days our service needs to

be unprecedented.


These Days, Giving 100% Just Isn't Enough.

This blog was inspired by my good friend Debe Maxwell's recently featured post:

Craig,

Well at least we know you don't "monkey around" when it comes to taking care of your clients.

Larry & Sheila - Thank you for setting the record straight you guys! Take that everyone!

Joan - Angry gorillas, rabid rhinos, petulant pumas. It doesn't matter. Bring 'em on! I'm not afraid!

Gay - I like your style Gay! If I wasn't so under the weather when I posted this one, I would have added a disclaimer... "Any resemblance to your Realtor is purely coincidental" and "No gorillas were harmed in the making of this blog"!!!

Michelle - Thank you Michelle. 100+ percent is what's expected and what we need to deliver.

Robin - Settle down Robin! This is a family blog. (Pssst. Whatcha doing tonight?!!!)

Roger - 200% is probably closer to what's expected these days. thanks for the kudos my friend.

Scott - Funny you should ask Scott. While I would never misrepresent my listings, i do have some fun marketing them. And then when they're sold, I have even more fun. For me, a simple "Sold" sign just doesn't cut it....

SOLD! Another Apex, North Carolina Home Sold by Craig Rutman!

Al & Peggy - I'm always confused! But by your math, if you had 100 listings would you only be giving 1% to each of them? More confused?!!!

Bob - Thank you sir. And thank you for stopping on by today. Come back soon!

Wanda - I always want to be someone's hero. That's what they hired me for.

Mike - That's pretty funny Mike. I can always count on you for a good quip! Thanks for popping in today my friend.

Vickie - It takes sooooo much more these days. But, it's part of the job and we just have to do it.

Pat & Wayne - Any agent who thinks 75% is the new 100% is just setting themselves up for failure.

Ryan - I like the way you think my friend! If it ain't warped, it's probably boring! Well done!

Christine - Thank you Christine. I had a little fun making this one.

Claudette - You little link clicker you! Actually, I love all of you guys. I just put that in there to see who's really paying attention!

Larry - I do love what I do. And I have fun doing it. But, there is no monkeying around when it comes to giving it my all for my people.

Ron - I thought about a "Where's Craig" series. It's on my "List-O-Plenty!
