Agent Evaluation Dreaded Mistake or Welcome Opportunity?

Let’s set the scene. You are a REALTOR; you arrive on time for your weekly [broker] sales meeting to be informed you are now going to be evaluated by your client on every transaction.

Gulp.

That’s not all; in addition the evaluation score will be used publically to assist future clients in their selection of your services.

Is this your worst nightmare or your incredible dream come true?

For me it would be both at the same time. I’ve had clients who think I can part the water and others who would never be satisfied even if I sacrificed my first born son, returned 110% of the commission plus physically moved every stick of furniture into or out of the new home!

I’ll give you two examples of the power of my network:

1. One agent called me because she was trying to effect a trade. One buyer wanted a home in Vista, CA; the sellers from Vista want to “see the world”. The sellers are clients of mine. The buyer wants to offer a “trade” for tax purposes. His bait? A home in Co. Kilkenny, Ireland. What concern do these sellers have? The obvious one; will we like it there? Their solution? Call Brian.
