What does real estate have in common with the Olympic Games? After watching the games the past several days, a lot, I think.
There are many parallels between olympic athletes and successful real estate brokers. To name a few:
Stamina – in today's market it takes a lot of stamina to compete and thrive. Transactions are more difficult and complex, escrow times are longer, sale fail rates are higher. Brokers with stamina are thriving.
Singular Focus – a very gritty, singular-focus is necessary to so many things brokers do: finding clients, negotiating transactions, seeing transactions through from listing appointment to closing and beyond.
Bravery – courageous behavior and character is evident among brokers who are finding success in today's economic climate.
Champion's Heart – being a champion for your clients, a champion for your community, and a champion for your peers sets you apart.
Dedication – brokers dedicated to their craft, the experts in their field, are true Olympians.
I'm proud to work with the real estate brokers of Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group and Windermere Stellar Group who emobdy the characteristics above. They're all gold medal winners in my book.
