"Most People Don't Want to Talk to a REALTOR®"

Recently, I was in a room full of REALTORS® when one of them said, "Most people don't want to talk to a REALTOR®." While this is often true, I thought to myself that it is also sad.

I would rather work to change this perception than spend time thinking about how the idea came to be. Buying a home is often the largest financial transaction a person makes. Selling a home without the help of a REALTOR® usually becomes time-consuming and frustrating. Due to the complexity and importance of buying or selling a home, Linda Holloway would encourage you to talk to and hire a REALTOR®.

I grew up hearing about real estate. I have even laughed and said that real estate is in my blood. I took my real estate courses and obtained my license in 2004. Later, I decided to join the real estate industry and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. I think I was in the business for all of five minutes when I gathered the impression that REALTORS® and real estate agents are not liked very much. Again, I thought this was sad and I wondered why. I decided to do my part to change this perception.

Borrowing the words of Paul Shane Spear, "As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person." It may start with the world of one buyer, or one seller, or one person who wants to stop renting and buy their own home. I will work hard to earn your trust, give you accurate information, and guide you through the process of buying or selling a home. I want to be a REALTOR® that people want to talk to and be able to whole-heartedly ignore the words, "Most people don't want to talk to a REALTOR®".
