In Real estate Jack of All Trades is Actually a Good Thing
This week has been a bit of a blur. A fun blur at least. REBarCamp Toronto ( http://www.rebarcampto.com/ ) , 2 days of RealtorQuest ( http://www.realtorquest.ca/) and then Bosley U. Where did the week go? Well, with all that behind me, at least now I have some time to talk about our Monday morning meeting. I thought this week it might be fun to outline some of the things we as Realtors know. There is an old expression that says Jack of all trades and master of none. In real estate I’m not so sure that is the case. So, I asked the simple question. “What are the topics you get asked on a daily basis”? You may be surprised at the answers. As it turns out we actually know a lot. I had so many responses that I ran out of paper…twice. Have a look. Did we miss anything?
Through our discussion, we covered nearly 70 things that we know something about. How? Either through our training, CEU credit courses, Mastermind and Monday meetings and talks around the water cooler. Naturally we don’t specialize in every one of these items but we certainly have a good understanding of them or can direct a buyer or seller to the right person to talk to. One thing is certain, when a skilled agent walks into a home, he is probably going through this list wondering if there is anything applicable to his buyer or seller. I wonder if a mere posting company has this knowledge?
Have a great weekend!
