If You Want to "Get-Er-Done!" Stick With The Professionals ... That Have Done It!
I love this crazy business! It's up, it's down, and it's sideways! At least it still alive!
A buddy was telling me a story yesterday about a loan officer that he worked with who mystically saved his transaction! She's a legacy in our area, she taught me ... and I'm a dinosaur with 32 years in the business!
On further look ... there was no mystery, no smoke and mirrors, no hocus pocus! Carol ... Carol Lee Challender, (her real name has been used to acknowledge the worthy) is a seasoned veteran with a giant bag of experience. She came to the table to make a deal and help a buyer "buy a home"! TA DAH!
Today I closed an escrow that was 5 ½ months long ... 4 ½ months with the first lender and 30 days with the lender that closed the sale. My "Magician" is Kim Marcarelli 775-586-1500.
The difference between a closed sale and an open escrow you might ask? ... E-X-P-E-R-I-E-N-C-E!
So ... this set me to thinking! I took a good look around. As the lending business goes ... so goes the selling business! It dawned on me! TA DAH! Those of us who are still hanging in and making a success of the real estate business are the agents who have the "Experience" to "Git-Er-Done!" as well!
I'm certainly not measuring success in years on the job ... goodness knows there are many Antique Realtors who should have hit the pastures long ago.
There are a few who years are short but their transaction experience is long ... basically because they have sold quite a few homes in their Young ... Successful ... Careers! Christianne Gordon in my office is a wonderful example! She's smart, she's experienced, she's a great agent, and she has the technical and experiential knowledge that it takes to be an "Outstanding Agent" in today's real estate environment.
So ... In conclusion! Buying and Selling in today's market are equally enhanced by aligning with the experienced agents, lenders, escrow officers, and inspectors who have the smarts and ability to ... to "Get-Er-Done!"
This isn't a cookie cutter business any more!
