What a year!!! For so many of us in the real estate industry, the holiday season is a time to catch our breaths a bit. Not that it means we slow down or stop helping our buyers and sellers – but simply that the season brings us a bit of balance and perspective.
While we no doubt share the same and often talked about thankfulness for the clients, homeowners and referral partners who have entrusted us with so much, there is an agent attitude of gratitude that often neglects to get any mention. So this year as I extend my deepest and most heartfelt gratitude to every homeowner whom I have had the pleasure of representing – I want to take a moment to thank the amazing agents whom have crossed my path too!
Often called the ‘agents on the other side ‘ – I want to thank the agents who are actually on the same side! You know – those whom are representing the buyers of the home that I am selling. Thank you for bringing your clients to my sellers’ homes, for communicating honestly and openly and making sure that everyone involved gets what they want by the end! While every transaction has its share of negotiations, ups and downs and tight timelines – I am so grateful to work with those whom ‘get it’ and whom enjoy those happy faces at the end as much as I do!
If you have attended or spread the word about any of my educational courses this year, I also want you to know much I appreciate your support! Your spirit of collaboration, your desire to stand out, your commitment to who you want to help and how you want to help them is what drives me as an instructor. I am more than grateful to my students for wanting to learn – and for teaching me a thing or two as well! You always remind me why we really are ‘better together’!
As we approach this amazing day of gratitude called Thanksgiving, please know that my agent ‘attitude of gratitude’ is a commitment and recognition I hold all year. Thank you for helping me do what I do and love it!
