How can I be a better real estate agent?
Maybe I can be taller?
Popular consensus tells us that the ideal height for men is between 5’10” and 6’0” tall and for women it is between 5’5” and 5’7” tall. Well, if being taller makes you a more preferred salesman, I may be out of luck. Unless men’s platforms come back in fashion.
Maybe I can be a woman?
I fall in the ideal height category for a woman, but would I even look good as a woman?
Well we know that there are far more ladies in this industry than men. And we know that ladies dominate the market in sales. But statics do show that men have a slight edge in getting listings in most states (Arizona being one of them).
So maybe I should focus more on getting listings?
What if I was better looking?
A new study shows that the more good looking the real estate agent, the more money they “might” earn you if selling your home. Maybe that’s why photographers earn so much from Realtor head shots.
Not to sound vain, but I have always considered myself more on the attractive side. So I may have an advantage in this department.
Oh wait, does being short take away from my attractiveness? Never mind.
I know I’ve done this before. People do like me when I’m just being me. So maybe there is something to this. Let’s see what the benefits are to being yourself.
1. You’ll be happier.
I like being happy so this makes me happy.
2. You’ll attract the right friends.
There’s nothing wring with that, I can’t stand fake friendships
3. You won’t anything to prove.
They say if you have to prove your honesty, chances are you’ve already lost the battle. We all know that’s not good in the real estate world.
4. Nobody can hold anything against you.
Being yourself means you speak the truth, you have nothing to hide, you keep things real. I’m pretty sure most people are ok with that.
5. Your confidence will show.
Anyone who loves who they are, has an unstoppable amount of self confidence.
This alone should be enough to want to be yourself.
6. You can inspire others.
Being comfortable with who you are reflects confidence. This can change somebody’s life just by showing them it’s ok to be honest and it’s ok to follow your heart. Be an inspiration to the people around you.
Let’s make honesty go viral.
7. You’ll gain a higher level of respect.
Who can’t see through phony people? Who likes you when you’re not being genuine? If they do, they’re just looking to take advantage of you, right?
So be yourself, be confident, and watch how others warm to you and respect you for who you are.
8. You’ll make better decisions.
When you know who you are, you make decisions based on being yourself, not someone you know nothing about. Good sound decisions always come from what’s deep inside you, so doesn’t make sense that the person inside you is yourself?
9. You won’t feel like a fraud.
When you are fake, people will see that you are fake, and they will treat you like a fake.
This will make feel like a fraud and nobody likes to feel like that.
10. People are more likely to trust you.
DING! DING! DING! Trust! Isn’t that what it’s all about? Yes! The answer is most definitely Yes. Without trust you have nothing in this business. No happiness, no confidence, no respect, no clients and above all
Ok, no more yelling:)
I know what I need to do.
Just be me.
I can do this.
