CORE VALUE OF THE MONTH 
JANUARY 2023

Clients First

lightbulb.png

"Be a trusted advisor. Listen to the needs and goals of your clients. Get to know them. The better you understand them, the more effectively you can manage and meet their expectations."

Clients First, it sounds like a very simple core value. In fact, as real estate agents, we are bound by the fiduciary duties of: loyalty, accountability, disclosure and reasonable care.

All of these speak to putting clients first. As commercial real estate professionals, this core value has a much deeper meaning. In our industry, transactions are rarely simple and the best course of action is not always clear. It is in these “grey areas” that we most often find ourselves in a dilemma. Sometimes we see our clients making, or about to make, a poor decision. Sometimes, we must deliver clients unwelcome information. It is at these moments that this core value is most important. We must spend the time to get to know our client(s) and understand what their needs truly are. Frequently, the loss of a deal, even after years of work, serves the client better than getting squeezed into a deal that makes them uncomfortable.

 

In the long run, if you faithfully adhere to this value, the relationships you build become infinitely more important than any single transaction.

“I want to say thanks for all your hard work in trying to obtain a tenant for our building. It was a long nine months, but we realize we are fortunate to now have all that behind us. We see many other vacant properties for longer periods than we endured. We are grateful. We all worked very hard to make this happen. A special thanks to Joanna for being so available to us…..via text and email. It is so good to see our Tenant enjoying a successful business in our location. So good to see many shoppers in there once again.”

“I write to thank you for employing such top line staff, Melissa Harris and Marci  Marsh. They are are credit to your company and easily the most professional, pleasant and fastidious professionals I have come across in nearly five years in America.  They handled my very small piece of business in an exemplary fashion.  I just wish I was staying in the U. S. from a business perspective, as people like them are not very thick on the ground in this modern era.  Thank you Ian.”
