Remember the story of Goldilocks and the three bears?
And the too hot, too cold and just right porridge?
And let’s also agree that when you are buying or selling real estate, one of the most important decisions you will make is: Which real estate agent should I hire to represent me?
Goldilocks and the Three Agents
There are lots of real estate agents out there. It’s easy to get licensed and the initial start-up fees are low enough that many people can afford to give it a whirl. But statistics show the average agent sells between 6-8 houses a year. Not even one house per month.
The “Too Cold” Real Estate Agent
So one of your choices is the “too cold” average agent – selling 6-8 houses a year. Do you want to put your important financial, lifetime investment “porridge” in the hands of an agent with that kind of limited experience?
The “Too Hot” Real Estate Agent
Another choice is one of the large real estate teams – 6, 8, 10 or more team members and one primary agent overseeing everything – the “too hot” agents in our real life “fairy tale”. If you decide to be represented by one of these teams, based on the knowledge and experience of the primary agent — and the team is selling a hundred properties or more each year – how often do you think you will actually hear from the primary agent?
When you have a question and need an answer, will you be able to reach the primary agent or will you find a full voice mail box and your emails going unanswered for days?
