“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share
your riches but to reveal to him his own.”
(1804-1881); Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
What does it mean to reveal a person’s riches to themselves? What
is the mechanism by which you can even accomplish such a thing? And what does
it have to do with your real estate agent?
Quite a bit, I would argue. I think a real estate agent has the
power to reveal their clients’ self-possessed riches.
One, a good agent will help clients see how a home is an
investment in their future. That they are investing in themselves, and the
decision to do so is a mark of their own wisdom.
Two, a good real estate agent helps guide clients through an
emotionally fraught transaction, which often shows they have deeper reserves of
self-confidence and strength that they may have overlooked in the past.
Three, a real estate agent helps foster a sense of trust and
interdependency -- that we can, in this world, rely on others to represent our
best interests, and that we are not in a perpetual state of “king of the
mountain” and abject self-reliance. A client with a good agent has both a
friend and a professional ally.
Whether you’re buying your first house or selling your home,
there’s both a tangible, bottom-line difference when working with an agent, as
well as valuable intangible benefits. For me, it’s a great privilege to be a
professional part of that process!
I’d love the opportunity to “the greatest good” on your behalf. Now is a great time to make your
