I’m starting a column this week for just the agents & Wanna Be Agents out there. I get a lot of feedback from agents and I thought I would dedicate a little section to agents, and pet-peeves and information agents could use. I’m not gonna make it a total bitch fest don’t worry. This weeks column is about different types of agents.
I’ve been in the business for 6 years now, and I’ve been in sales for about 20. Sold mortgages and was a manager. So that’s my resume.
I’ve notice that there is a wide range of different types of agents out there. Part Timers, Rookies, Veterans, Techies, Discounters, Busy Bodies and more.
While every generation is different, I’ve noticed the new norm is the part-time agent. I really don’t understand how you can fully service your client if you are out somewhere selling stocks during the day. From my experience, my job is a full time job.
Now I’m not here to cry about agents who need to put butter on the table to feed their kids and are trying to make a better life for themselves, but when you are selling your lives investment, don’t you think your attention is needed.
The same attention goes for the people that hire agents that take on every listing that comes across their desk. Being successful is one thing, but being gluttonous is another. I’ve dealt with agents that I can’t even get a hold to give them an offer.
The Question is what kind of agent are you?
