How I can help reduce the unemployment rate - 2011 December Blogging Challenge DAY 20

By
Real Estate Agent with Godzyk Real Estate Services

 

 

On the 20th day of the Blogging challenge I took it upon myself to help reduce the unemployment rate. I was looking to hire a new assistant and set up 4 interviews. . My requirements were simple. To be able to work a mix of days, nights and a weekend day, have a drivers license, reliable car, auto insurance, the ability to work with others, knowledge of a computer,  MS word and excel as well as to have a computer at home. If they were not licensed I would register them in a real estate class. The first woman did not even show up, no call, no nothing at all. The second woman was early, great I thought, I loved promptness. She appeared well kept, she was very well spoken but said she could not work any nights and weekends. She also said she did not have access to a car everyday. She asked me why those were requirements. I told her that the job of an agent is to show houses when buyers are available, the majority of showings are at night and on weekends. i also told her a car was needed to get us there to show the house. She sighed... She has some good quailities but not the total package I need right now.

 

The second person arrived in what appeared to be pajamas. My first thought is if you are going to a job interview and can not take the time to get dressed, how would you behave and act when you got a job. I was very dissappointed with this interview. I was hoping that the thrird time would be a charm when they walked in with 2 dogs. I like dogs but to bring them on a job interview?? She said she brings her dogs everywhere, unfortanately it is not proper in a place of business or when you are dealing with the public and showing homes. The day was a disaster. 

 

On a better note It was a refreshing breathe of fresh air to hear from the mainstream media this morning as they ran a positive story on Real Estate on NBC's The Today Show. Here in the Manchester NH we have already known what they were reporting but many others may not have. Jim Cramer when being interviewed on the economic recovery being directly linked to the improvement in the Real Estate market.

 

Construction starts are up and unemployment rate is down. The majority of construction starts are in new apartment buildings. New construction is one of the leading catalysts that leads to economic growth. When Jim Cramer was asked if this was the bottom of the Real Estate market he seemed to agree. Here in NH our unemployment rate is much lower than the national average. We have already hit our bottom. Most segments are stabile with some even showing signs of increasing. Yesterday I had trashed the idea of a new assistant to next year, but I need one now.

Good luck in finding the right assistant!  The numbers in MA are pretty good too with unemployment below the national average, home sales creeping up & even prices creeping up in some markets.  Of course, all real estate is local & it does vary greatly even from town to town around here.

Sounds like you could interviewing for that position for a long time.  Have you tried recruiting under performing agents in your market?

Chris Ann I wanted someone new that i could mold, I had bad luck with someone who though that they were too experinced so was trying for a different direction, perhaps i have to rethink that.

Put the word out as you talk to people during the day Scott, and you will find the right person.  Maybe one of your friends' wives is looking for a new job?
