The GREATEST real estate agent in the world is an interesting topic of conversation as well as being a contest.
Now let me explain first that I don’t consider myself the “World’s Largest Real Estate Agent in Panama City, Florida”. but I consider myself a very skilled and professional real estate agent who offers the best real estate services in
However, this sounds like a fun contest and I thought I’d enter and have a little fun with it.
I believe that there is much more to the true nature of being the “World’s Greatest Realtor”, I also believe that it is about understanding, learning and offering the best real estate services available. Anywhere!
What does it mean to be the “World’s Largest Real Estate Agent”? Well, in my opinion, there are many things that agents can do to help their primary focus of selling real estate and to assist their clients in buying real estate:
Advertising: The agent must be focused and advertise not only to achieve strong market penetration, but also to reach the most qualified readers for your ad.
Knowledge of the market and the product: the agent must maintain a solid and complete knowledge of the local real estate market. To do this, they must spend hours researching sales and listings, expired listings, and retired listings.
Honest and Ethical: One trait that I believe distinguishes the “best real estate agent in the world” from other agents is their ability to be honest and maintain their my4walls morals and ethics at the highest level. Your dealings not only with your clients and clients should exemplify high moral and ethical behavior, but also your dealings with other real estate agents, as well as support professionals such as loan offices, builders, contractors, etc.
Investment foresight: I think another strong trait is the ability to discern which properties are the strongest case for your clients and the clients’ investment strategy. Not only being able to calculate rates of return, gross income multipliers, potential gross income, and other variables, but also understanding how these variables affect a client’s purchase or a client’s real estate investment strategy.
Knowledge of technology: being able not only to understand the technology that exists today to help a real estate agent in their business, but also to have the ability to apply that technology is a primary consideration today.
As technology becomes a more important part of our daily lives, it also becomes a primary tool for providing additional services and assistance to clients and clients of real estate agents.
The application of technology, in addition to having a website, is not an easy task. After all, the experience of a real estate agent is selling real estate! However, the ability to effectively use and implement the software and hardware available in an agent business will allow that agent to be recognized as a leader in its market and industry.
These are just a few of the factors that make the “World’s Largest Realtor” a reality for any realtor in today’s highly competitive real estate market. In my opinion, there is so much to becoming the best that actually deciding who this person is would be beyond the abilities of most experts today.
However, we as real estate agents must continue to strive to be the best we can for our local market. Our eye on the award of being the “World’s Greatest Real Estate Agent” should remain our focus throughout our careers.
