What makes a good real estate agent or Realtor?


Stop thinking it's about you. It's about the client. Constantly think about how (and if) your clients benefit from everything you do or say.  It's not always easy to put your client first, but in the end it pays big dividends.

Sell benefits, not features. Don't just explain to a family of four that a home features five bedrooms. Point out that the fifth bedroom could be used as a media room, a home office, an exercise room, etc.  Ultimately, it's your job to explain how the features of the home will benefit your client.
