The Hospital is Only as Good as the Doctor Who Treats You!

The Hospital is Only as Good as the Doctor Who Treats You! The school is only as good as the teacher your child gets! And the real estate company is only as good as the agent you work with.

When associated with the big real estate company, I asked three questions on a listing appointment...now there are only two questions.

1-Are you 100% sure you want to sell your house?  2-Are you 100% sure you want to use me?

The third question used to be: "Do you have any questions about the company I work for?" Most times there were none but on several occasions when the brokerage was mentioned, I got this kind of response:

'Oh, I can't use you.  We once had an agent from your company and we will never use them again...or my sister used them and had a bad experience.' 

That's when I had to use this line:  ''The Hospital is Only as Good as the Doctor Who Treats You!"

There has not been that concern since going on my own as Broker/Owner of HomeRome Realty.

As agents with large companies, have you had to overcome this objection?

Sandy, Are you saying  it took 5 years to sell this home?  I bet you are glad it was not your listing!

Margaret:

Great post, and you are very right. How many times have you spoken to someone who either just bought or sold a home, and they can't remember the name of their agent... let alone the company they were with?

I spent about 7 years with Century 21 and 6 with REMAX. In my experience all of their advertising brought me very few clients over the years. Certainly not enough for the percentange it cost me!

Jeff, I find that people follow people..not companies. A new agent may be able to get a start with a big name company but thsy need to do a darn good job to get repeat and referral business.

Margaret, people follow people.  I've been with a few different companies over 27 years and I listed and sold 14 houses for the same couple, all throught those years, no matter where I worked!   xxoo

Susan, Of course they follow you. They know you, they trust you and you make them feel comfortable and you always do right by them. It's not about the company..follow the person.
