Can You Trust a REALTOR®?

When a new client chooses to work with me, I am presented with a new challenge.  Whether they are friends, family or complete strangers, I have a goal to earn their total trust and loyalty.  I know I have a level of trust and loyalty with friends and family, but when they are first-time home buyers, it really takes time for them to let go of their fear.  Fear is the first barrier I concentrate on.

My day-to-day activity isn’t just about showing homes. It’s about building relationships.  When I’ve reached the point where clients can have heart-to-heart talks with me, I know I have earned their trust.  Breaking through that ground is extremely important to me.  Once I’ve earned their trust, I have to work even harder to keep it.  In my practice, I cannot move forward comfortably if I feel a client is second-guessing their decisions.

I pay attention to people.  I listen carefully.  Over the years, I’ve learned that it’s more than the words that are being said… it’s the expressions.  It’s the body language.  It’s the connection people have.  When I commit my time to clients, whether they are single, married or with a partner, I pay close attention to the connection they have with each other and with the homes they walk through.  When a buyer finally makes a connection with ME, I know we are only steps away from making dreams come true.

Can you trust a REALTOR®?  Yes, you can.  But don’t just trust one because their marketing says you should.  Make us work for it.  It’ll be worth it in the long run.
