In May, Energy Realty launched a new website focusing on the difference between hiring an Energy Realty agent verses someone from a large company. In the last month, I have heard more complaints from consumers about Realtors aggressively soliciting for listings when they expire and making false promises about what they will deliver. The second biggest complaint I hear about our industry is that Realtors do not return calls nor follow up once they have the business, and I am appalled. If all I have to do is call my clients back, I win that hands down!
It is easy to become a licensed Realtor, but it takes the right training and leadership to become a professional Realtor. As a small boutique of 30 agents, I personally train and coach agents on a daily basis on how to provide exceptional full service to our clients and protect their interests during the real estate transaction. My goal is to make sure that all of our clients receive the same exceptional service, no matter which Energy Realty agent they are working with. Please check out our new website for more details on this commitment.
Aggressive agents are the “used car salesman” of the industry, but don’t think that we are all the same. Some of the larger brokerages have over 750 agents and most of these agents are not seasoned Realtors. The large brokerages are training these agents to aggressively call and knock on doors to get business, but they are not training these agents on how to be professionals and to understand the contracts. Your home is your largest asset, so choose your Realtor wisely.
