In my opinion, real estate transactions should be a win/win for both parties. In most instances, the sale of a home and the purchase of that same home have intertwined emotions. Possible years of family memories of a growing family with the promise of a new family hoping to do the same. Sadly so many agents see the transaction as a “sell it as fast as I can and move to the next one.” Honest and ethical negotiation processes are becoming a thing of the past and that, my friends, is very sad. There is nothing more rewarding that leaving the closing table with Sellers and Buyers exchanging phone numbers, giving each other gifts, smiling and laughing. That is what makes my career rewarding. Making a living in this industry is easy. Changing lives is the true reward.
