REAL ESTATE AGENTS SHOULD BRIEF YOU ON WHAT TO EXPECT

I love having dialog with people who know their stock in trade. Doesn't matter what the subject is either. Anyone who is good at what they do brings value to any discussion. I recently met up with a lady who cleans homes and she is well-organized and thorough on what she does. During conversation, she shared that she was in foreclosure and had to move right away...

TELL ME MORE SAYS I

I have heard this story many times. The subject matter is a common one while the persons circumstances remain unique. That is what makes this business fascinating is that no two transactions are a like even though similar. Well,  she shares she has to move out right away and she says it with stress, concern and heaviness. I start the rapid fire questions

DID YOU KNOW...

Do you have a Real Estate agent? Yes, a friend of the family who is working with us she said BUT with doubt and raised eyebrows. That was a red flag right there. I then asked if your agent is briefing you on your time-line and what to expect? NO she says. Who is your bank? B of A . I then start sharing with her what to expect, when and how long this will all take, cash for keys etc. It was like she was hearing it for the first time...

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Instant relief came about. I had to go over a couple things more than once because for many, the subject of banks, mortgages, foreclosures, default, delinquencies, having to move, non-payment and all out fear is just too much to take in no matter how it is said. Things have to be repeated and emphasized until received

GO SPEAK WITH YOUR AGENT NOW

When I finished, I had to tell her to go speak with your agent and ask specific questions in regards to what is happening and what you need to know. One thing that gave her relief was the fact that she didn't have to move right away. Many believe that not making one payment brings the WOLF to the door 30 days later..case in point..

WHATS THAT SNORING NOISE I HEAR

If this lady had professional help, she would be able to navigate with more confidence, less stress and make intelligent decisions for her life starting now and for the future. Being foreclosed upon is quite common around here and specifically at this time and stigma attached to it has diminished. It is now a business that can be negotiated through.  Her agent is asleep at the WHEEL transaction.

PROFESSIONAL HELP MAKES A DIFFERENCE

When necessary, seek out professional help so that whatever problem has presented itself can be mitigated or eliminated accordingly. That is what professionals do. BTW, she left the place shiny, new and bright as she is a professional cleaner. I would not hesitate to use her again. But her agent...?

Jairo...my boy, Her agent will now have the famous "deer in the headlights" on their face instead of this woman having it on her

 

Hello Marilyn...very true to your comment. Sometimes we sense we don't know what is or is not taking place.   The feeling that some thing is not right. I got  it just by spending  a few moments with her.. Learning to trust  that mechanism  inside of us all helps in everything we do...

 

Hello Bob...I have to stand with Bob's comment. I emphasize that this is not a game and that the stakes are high which is the welfare of another human being....Experimenting at this level is harmful to all

Richie the only question you didn't ask her was what time does her Agent finish her other job, this is a classic example of the difference between some one who is in the business full time because her Agent sounds like a part timer.

Ha ha Tibor, I think you hit the nail on the head. I'm gonna start asking that question, or a variation, what is your agents full time job? Your agents other job?
