My most unique resources are my memory and my ability to catch on quickly. I can see something once do it once with supervision, and I will have it. This ability makes my learning curve exceptional and has helped me in the past get up to speed quicker than my cohorts.
Asking for help is something I can improve upon. Because I typically have a specific way, I like things done. I usually have a plan of attack that has been well researched before I proceed with a new project. If I need to work with a group, I explain in great detail how it is to be completed and why. If the instructions are not followed, I will often take away the project and complete it myself. I realize there is more than one way to skin a cat, but I often believe my way is the best and most efficient way. Releasing control, is something I find difficult, in both personal and professional situations. This will be a hurdle I will have to cross if I plan to open my own Real Estate office. I will not be able to be everywhere all the time, and if I try, that will ultimately stand in the way of progress, which will defeat the purpose of hiring staff.
Every opportunity is open to me within the real estate industry besides Appraisal, because it requires additional focused education and training. The one-stop-shop is a trend we could you take advantage of. Buyers and sellers don’t want to have to worry about running to multiple companies to get deals done. They want one place where they can get everything, like Walmart. The fact that I have first-hand experience with lenders, banks, and how they work makes me a benefit and a useful tool in any opportunity.
Threats that could harm any Real Estate Firm are the same, misinformation. In our society today, there is a plethora of fake news, fake ads, and false articles. The Real Estate industry is not immune to all this factual information. Not all information online is true and accurate. And this can cause clients to expect things that simply cannot be done. This misinformation can ultimately cost the firm clients and will require a significant amount of time to manage their expectations.
