You hire an agent, you ask them to represent you....in one of the most challenging housing situations in your entire life. One you've never done before, but the agent has done more than they can count on their fingers and toes....many more.
You hire the strongest agent you know, the one that you are supremely confident can get the job done. In a way that will work out best for your needs. In a timely manner, and a 'protect your family' manner.
Then, something steps up....and gets in the way.....and you can't move forward.
The infamous ego.
So you hire the next best thing, an agent you can walk all over. I'm sure most of you realize how this will pan out.
I've worked with many an ego in my day as a Santa Clarita Realtor, and many that are extremely strong. The strong egos that are also the smartest? The ones that know when it's time to let the agent do their job and let their egos enjoy a little ride in the back seat....at least this one time.
