Even if you don’t live in Denver as I do, you are probably aware of our recent Super Bowl win as well as Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s subsequent retirement. I recently watched , and one of the things he said really resonated with me. He said: “I revere football. I love the game.” And it occurred to me, I feel that same reverence for the field of real estate.
Manning also said he asked himself what he could have done better, and I have the same feeling for my job. After every transaction, I ask myself, “What could I have done better? How could I have made this transaction go more smoothly?”
My strong desire to improve the real estate process for my clients is one of the reasons I decided to work toward my Certified Residential Specialist designation.
What the CRS Designation Means to My Clients
Only 3 percent of U.S. real estate agents have their CRS designation. It requires stringent , as well as a certain level of experience. CRS-designated agents are the best of the best. And I want my clients to know that offering them that level of service and experience is important to me.
Buying and selling real estate is a highly emotional process. I have worked toward developing my skill when it comes to dealing with people and their emotions, and keeping everyone working together to ultimately complete the transaction as smoothly as possible. I love doing what I do and I care deeply for my clients. Obtaining the CRS designation is one way I can show my clients just how much it means to me to be the experienced professional they need me to be.
Much as professional athletes like Peyton Manning constantly strive to improve their game, I make every effort to improve the real estate experience for my clients. Our playing fields may be different, but the goal to continually improve is the same. Continuing education as well as learning something from each transaction are ways that I can up my game.
