charlie.peterson1 : Sales hasn't been the focus of real estate for YEARS, has it? Still, this sounds nice until you actually apply higher standards for brokerages then it's crickets....

susannecasey : Sales IS customer service. Nothing happens until someone sells something. Sales is not a dirty word.

jeanetteecummings : This is how I’ve thought of our industry. Whether a first or second home or an investment property, we are helping clients to build on their financial portfolios, and should be an ongoing relationship.

piercesmithua : Joe, you could not be that naive. This is a sales industry without any sales training. So, agent will not see themselves as sales people but “negotiators”. Agents are definitely not negotiators! What has to change is:
Feb 14, 2018 16:54 pm
piercesmithua : Training, perception, recruiting standards, field training, and frequent educational meetings. Brokers have skirted every responsibility possible to save time, staffing, support, costs to max profit. Abysmal job of leadership, ethos, professionalism of agents. Consumer response is ignored and answered with complex unrealistic jargon.

piercesmithua : 100% the tip of the incompetency amount agents!
Feb 14, 2018 17:02 pm
piercesmithua : great! Brokers do Not want to take responsibility for agents!! Sales is the essential missing ingredient for magical control of a market!
Feb 14, 2018 17:04 pm
piercesmithua : if you think you are not in sales, you have a miserable time working in RE. No major industry in the world functions without strong realistic sales trained representation!

jenfeinberg : I appreciate you have your own opinion and approach, however, I would prefer you not pass judgement on me personally. I will let you know I am a proud, knowledgeable, proactive, well-educated, and SUCCESSFUL real estate agent. I pride myself and my success on superior service..... and it works for me.

piercesmithua : jen, understood; but your naïveté must be addressed so the truth be told. You obviously have no idea what sales is or causes, strategies, tactics, or purpose. If you knew, you would be a much better agent. Your lack of trust to call yourself a sales person is shocking to me.
