Closing my FIRST DEAL!
I remember the feeling I had when I passed my last real estate exam. It was pure excitement followed immediately by doubt & fear. Who is going to hire me to represent them as their Realtor?
How age and (in)experience does not always limit your chances!
Apart from some pre-construction condo sales from the year prior, I was new to real estate and working in the Barrie and Surrounding markets. I remember sitting in the office, signing the paperwork with RE/MAX Hallmark Chay becoming a registered agent within their company. I had no clients I was working with, no leads & no real potential of landing any contracts. To say I was a little nervous was an understatement!
As I was just starting out in this profession, I had a feeling that I may lose out on getting clients because of my young age and inexperience. I didn't have the years of experience behind my name, supporting me as a professional. With such a large asset, not everyone feels comfortable taking a chance on the "new kid". And I was right, I did lose out on some clients due to lack of experience (and I still do on occasion) However, not everyone thinks like that.... thankfully!
Closing My First Deal
It was February, only a month after I started working with my partner/mother Jody Davis, when I was holding an open house for one of her sellers. A young couple walked in and we started chatting. This particular house was not right for them, but there was another in the area that they wanted to check out. I told them that I would set up an appointment for us to go see the home right after my open house finished. They had come from out of town so were thrilled that I would be so prompt to show them around. That day started our working relationship and a few months later they got the keys to their new home! Just as they were excited about their new home, I was ecstatic that I had just closed my first deal. I was thankful that they had trusted me with such a large purchase.
