Successful Realtors have successful coach…
I must disagree here. It’s disheartening to hear another RE professional refer to fellow Agent’s as used car sales people. The RE Market is saturated with both good and bad Agent’s. Flat rate doesn’t necessarily yield bad results. It depends on the individual RE Agent. I’ve worked with other Agent’s earning well past what I thought to be reasonable and several were some of the most entitled awful people to work on a transaction with.
I don’t think it’s reasonable to suggest flat rate Agencies provide poor results. It’s up to the consumer to do their homework and hire a full time Agent who will advocate for them. There are a lot of Agents who dabble part time, do it on the side, have full time jobs elsewhere and have no dedication to doing the right thing for a client. Paying out large commissions doesn’t equate to better service. I’ve been on both sides of the coin and witnessed Agents earning too much bank roll for their sub-par (at best) performance.

There are so many defnitions of success. Most of the opinions and comment of the author are good. There are specific citations which is not applicable in some cases. There are so many factors which influences our undertakings especially in real estate. I believe that always remember just do the right things followed by good deeds.

One more item to add to your list is that “Realtors never stop listening”, because even though we are licensed through the state to help with real estate transactions, we are also part therapists as we listen to people’s joys and fears through the buying or selling process. This is something the “flat-rate” companies fail to disclose, that when they take a client on, that client gets the level of service they paid for and its unfortunate, because these people are not “Realtors”, they are used car salespeople.
