4 Attributes All Great Realtors Should Have

Working with a great realtor has an enormous impact on the experience of the buyer or seller during a home transaction. A great realtor uses their knowledge and skills to guide those they work with through the sales process to ensure it goes smoothly, answering any questions they may have along the way. They pour hours into searching for the perfect properties to bring buyers to for viewings, and they dedicate countless resources to promoting listings to attract offers on properties for sellers. Having a great realtor can be the difference between a buyer finding a home they adore and one they’re just satisfied with or the distinction between a seller being flooded with multiple offers and barely any coming in at all.

As real estate experts in some of the most desirable neighborhoods in Mexico, including the Cabo San Lucas real estate, Baja California Sur real estate, and Los Cabos real estate markets, the Goldsmith Group knows what attributes make a great realtor and takes pride in possessing a team that exhibits these qualities in both their character and work ethic.

Whether this will be your first encounter in the real estate market or your tenth, look for these four attributes all great realtors should have when deciding who to team up with for your transaction.

Integrity


Real estate is an industry that deals with people all day, and the decisions that are made directly affect their lives for years to come. In order to be a great realtor, integrity is essential. A great realtor will always put what is in the client’s best interest above what is most profitable for their financial gain. They will listen carefully to buyers and diligently search for homes that fit their needs, and they will put hours into preparing listings and marketing properties when representing sellers.

Great realtors are totally transparent when representing buyers, being completely honest and forthcoming about all details of a property and its neighborhood, as well as showing them homes that are within their price range. When representing sellers, they dedicate the necessary hours to working on getting their property sold and thoroughly explaining the pros and cons associated with each offer that comes in.

A great realtor wants to close a deal because it will benefit their client and not just because of the commission check it will bring. As professionals whose careers have a direct impact on clients’ lives, all great realtors possess the highest level of integrity.

Experience 



Becoming a great realtor requires hard work and perseverance. Those who can be distinguished as such should have ample experience under their belt when it comes to their local housing market and the real estate industry as a whole. An awareness of the current market and how deals get done in its current climate is crucial. Experienced agents will know how to make offers stand out when representing buyers, and they will know how to market properties to attract the most interest in the home when representing sellers too. Agents with years of experience often have extensive professional networks as well, which can come in handy for getting the word out about properties, hearing about new listings, or connecting buyers and sellers with local services they need.

When finding a real estate agent to work with, never be afraid to ask questions. Find out how many years they have in the business, the average number of homes they buy and sell in a year, and if they are a full-time or part-time agent. Check if they have more past experience representing buyers or sellers. Pay attention to their transaction history over the past two years, and ask how they will help you stand out in today’s market. Buying or selling a home is an enormous occasion, and finding a great realtor means locating one who has enough experience to succeed in a competitive environment. 

Compassion



Buying or selling a home can be an emotional experience, and great realtors need to have compassion for those they work with. Great realtors view each deal as not just a sales transaction but as a monumental time in the lives of both the buyers and the sellers. They genuinely care about the people they serve, and they want them to be happy with the final transaction. They want to see buyers love living in the homes they purchase, and they want sellers to be happy with the profit they earned as they enter a new stage of life and close a page on the old one. Any realtor wants to close a sale, but a great realtor wants to close a sale because they know how much joy it will bring their client.

Find a realtor who makes you feel comfortable and treats you like family. You should never feel like a burden for calling them on the phone with another question or asking to see another property if you aren’t quite sure you’ve found the right home yet. A great realtor will display compassion by asking you about your needs, your long-term goals, and what you hope to achieve out of the transaction. They’ll be more than just a sales representative but a friendly source of support, too.

Resourcefulness


Resourcefulness is a key attribute of a great realtor. Realtors need to use all the tools available to them to find buyers the best homes or get close deals for sellers, and the best ones know how to maximize their usage. Great realtors will be experts with the Multiple Listing Service, both when searching for properties and when performing a comparative market analysis to price a listing. They are highly skilled at digital marketing as well, attracting maximum interest to the homes they list. All the greatest realtors know what an incredible resource their professional networks are as well, often hearing about incredible homes that are about to hit the market or getting in touch with an interested buyer through word-of-mouth.

Among all great realtors, attributes of integrity, experience, compassion, and resourcefulness always distinguish them as the best at what they do.
