One of my favorite things about the real estate business is working with friends, family member and advisors of my clients. They all like to say “Here is what I would do regarding…”
And I understand my position. I am not your brother, uncle, dad, son, etc. I’m just a guy who even in his worst year, worst, helped 17 people buy and/or sell a house. I’m just a guy who even though I do this “part time” sold $3,000,000 worth of real estate last year. I’m just a guy who has helped over 225 people buy or sell a house in the 9 years I have been doing this.
So even though my advice is opposite the advice of your advisors who have been involved in maybe 8-10 sales over their lifetime I know who you are going to listen to. I just have to understand and work with that.
NOTE: If you think I’m talking about you, you may be right. On the other hand, this happens in nearly EVERY transaction. So don’t take it personally. It’s just the way it is. 🙂 And hey, I know everyone means well. That’s why they are trying to help.
