Labor of Love for Real Estate and Mortgage Professionals

September 5, 2010 by · 2 Comments 

For those real estate and mortgage professionals who have endured through the housing collapse and mortgage implosion, our sanity is constantly being questioned. Ex-Realtors, former mortgage brokers and homeowners alike scratch their heads and collectively ask “are you crazy?”

It’s more than being crazy about real estate. To be crazy would imply that there is some cure for our illness.

For us real estate and mortgage professionals who have survived the down market, it’s a Labor of Love.

Labor Day is more than just an extra day off from work or simply the last fling of summer. It is a much-deserved rest in recognition of the hard work and daily disciplines that fuel our businesses and drive our economy.

From all of us at WelcomeHomeNWI.com, we hope you enjoy this time relaxing with friends and loved ones. You deserve it. We wll be back to our Labor of Love to help you with all your real estate and mortgage needs.

  1. No question about it, real estate is a tough business and it takes a great degree of dedication to do it well.
    With more sellers than buyers in the current market, it is a little like Rodney Dangerfield and his observation “I don’t get no respect”. The people on the front line who deal with consumers directly are the ones who must explain complex processes in easy to understand ways. Ability to effectively explain those terms, reduces consumer skepticism.
    Learning that when we can answer the big “why” questions for clients, we can lead them through the process in a more orderly fashion. When they flip-flop around and dictate terms based on incomplete or misguided information, that is where the disconnects happen that make things frustrating.
    Being a dedicated pro means taking time for good communication. This will reward both consumers with better service and ourselves in fewer surprises. When clients know what to expect, there is more controlled and orderly transaction flow. Fewer surprises lead to closed deals, happy clients, and the satisfaction \of a job well done.

  2. Steve – Understanding the why behind the real estate and mortgage market is definitely a prerequisite in today’s real estate market. You could even go so far as to say that it applies to everything in life. Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend.
