We all have conditioned associations with realtors. My personal (admittedly somewhat negative) realtor stereotype word bank used to look like this: aggressive, relentless, power suit, unyielding, manipulative, sales driven at all costs. It has been a genuine privilege to enter this industry in a city and at a company that defies these stereotypes. I can say honestly that more commonly I experience care as the foundational motivation of the realtors I look forward to working with.
It cannot be overstated what a difference having a great agent on the other side of a transaction makes. Providing loyal representation to clients and establishing a quality working relationship with fellow agents are not mutually exclusive drivers. When there is mutual respect, quality of communication, and a collaborative spirit between agents, it is felt by all parties, even if so much of this relationship exists in the shadows of the transaction. A small note of thanks to the realtors driven by service and connection – you are such a big part of what makes this job meaningful and fun.
