The word ‘agent’ has always been synonymous with the term ‘dealer’, and with the ‘agent in charge’ of the transaction.
But what does it mean to be an agent?
And what do the ‘agents’ themselves know?
Is there anything to learn from their experiences?
The answer, according to Dr. James Ewing, a lecturer at the University of Queensland’s Centre for Advanced Real Estate, is yes.
“We can all do some very valuable work,” Dr. Ewing said.
You can only be a part-time agent.” “
But you can’t be a ‘agent’, if you’re not fully engaged in what you’re doing.
You can only be a part-time agent.”
The ‘agent experience’ of being a part time agent One of the most important aspects of being an agent is getting to know the people that work with you and making sure they’re not just following the ‘rules’.
Dr. Robert Hirsch, who is also a professor of real estate management at the College of the Sunshine Coast, has been working as a ‘real estate broker’ for 10 years.
“It’s about having that experience that a lot of people don’t have,” he said.
“[But] there are lots of people who can’t afford to do this and they have to do it for a living, so it’s really important to do that.”
The experience of working in the real estate industry, with its emphasis on the buyer, seller and agent is one that Dr. Hirsch has been able to gain from his experiences as a broker.
“The real estate broker is one of the few people who have the experience to make those decisions about a property,” he explained.
“They have to really know their clients, they have a lot more experience, they know the history of the property, they’re familiar with the history and the character of the people involved.”
It’s a great experience to have, but it’s also an enormous challenge to become the ‘dealers’ and the ‘advisers’.
As well as having to meet all the needs of the client, the realtor has to do their own research, and get to know every aspect of the sale.
Dr. Andrew Williams, managing director of the Australian Real Estate Association (ARA), said it’s a huge challenge for both parties to get to grips with all the different aspects of the realtors job.
“To be honest, it’s something that a buyer needs to be aware of, but the real owner of the properties,” he told 7.30.
It’s not just the real money that needs to go into a property, you need to be good at managing the buyer’s expectations, understanding what they want to achieve and what they’re expecting to achieve in the future.” “
You have to understand who the real buyer is, you have to be able to understand how they value their properties, you’ve got to know where they’re going to be going to, what the future is going to look like for the property and you’ve also got to be very good at selling the properties.”
It’s not just the real money that needs to go into a property, you need to be good at managing the buyer’s expectations, understanding what they want to achieve and what they’re expecting to achieve in the future.
Dr Ewing agreed. “
You don’t know everything that’s going to sell, so if you can find the right properties and manage them well, then it’s easier to find the deals,” Dr Williams said.
Dr Ewing agreed.
“One of the things that we’ve learned is that the buyer needs the experience of being part of the process,” he added.
But how do you become a realtor? “
And you’ve been able so far to find deals that are worth your while.”
But how do you become a realtor?
The first step, Dr. Williams said, is to become an agent.
“In the real world, you work as an agent and you work with a broker to find a buyer for your property,” Dr Hirsch said.
The second step is to build a relationship with the buyer.
“If you’ve just got a relationship that’s been established with a buyer, then you know how to put that in writing,” Dr Ewood said.
But you also have to consider whether you’re the right fit for the seller, and if so, what type of relationship they have with you.
“When you’re working with a seller, you’re probably more interested in how they’d react if they were to find out that you’re an agent,” Dr Harth said.
A good relationship between the buyer (or seller) and agent, he said, was one of those ‘buyer-agent relationships’.
“If the buyer has had the opportunity to interact with an agent for a long period of time, that relationship is going, ‘
