You Gotta Just Do Whatever It Takes.....Sometimes.

By
Real Estate Agent with BCR Realtors

No doubt real estate transactions are way more complex than in the past. Keeping up with all the legal, technical and social requirements is almost a full time job in and of itself! As a result it can often be overwhelming when a contract you have worked so hard to see to the close,  becomes slowed down again and again because of anther's errors or inadequacies or even some poorly designed bureaucratic system that none of us on a local level have any control over at all.

But sometimes stuff just happens.  And  often no matter how hard we planned and strategized things just don't want to go as we hoped for.   So.....You can waste time blaming, complaining, whining and moaning..... or you do what I have found is less stressful and more profitable in the long run ...just shut up, roll up your sleeves and go to work to solve the problem.  In the long run you will find you will see more transactions close, put more dollars in your pocket, and experience way less stress.  Sometimes you Gotta just do whatever it takes.

 The Real Estate Sales Profession is no less or more stressful than any other. If a patient start to bleed on the surgery table the doctors make adjustments. If a soldier in  Afghanistan is suddenly surrounded and ambushed by the enemy he makes adjustment and if the plumber fixes one leak and another sprouts up down the line ...he has to fix it doesn't he?

We can fret and worry about the "what ifs" in this business or we can simply learn to deal with them in a professional and reasonable manner when they suddenly arise.  So the next time a loan officer calls you up at the last minute out of the blue and says "We got a problem..."    just reply " OK what Do I need to be doing to solve this"  then roll up your sleeves and get after it.  Do what it takes.

Have a properous week!

Sort of like if you fall off the horse, you've got to get back on.  Well said Trey!
