Today is a quick detour…I want to take a moment to stress the importance of having a mentor, both in life and in business. A GOOD mentor or “coach” provides us with many important things, including:
- Calm Fears
- Sound Advice for Difficult Situations
- Role Model
- Create a Balance in Life
- Building your Confidence
In buying or selling a home, you also need a good mentor…a good real estate professional as your trusted partner. Rarely is there ever a “flawless” real estate transaction…there are always bumps and obstacles along the way. A good real estate agent will act as your mentor, guiding you along in the process…calming fears, building your confidence, and providing sound advice and encouragement.
Here is a picture of me at the 2012 National Association of REALTORS conference with one of my mentors, Brian Buffini. Brian formed the world’s most successful real estate training and coaching company…and he has taught me A LOT. Who is your mentor? How could you be a mentor to someone else?
