Welcome to 2010. Welcome to the generation of change and instability. Welcome to the future.
I grew up around business-minded people. The people that took quarterly earnings charts, compared them with upcoming product lines, and projected sales patterns for the upcoming fiscal year.
I grew up around big square footage, big cars and big payments. I grew up with neighbors that never came over, Halloween candy that had to be picked through for suspicious morsels, and doors that had to be locked. I grew up in a generation waist-deep in isolation and fear.
But this kind of isolation did not make us happier. Living in fear did nothing to give us security. We were missing something—something so essential and basic that it was easily overlooked. We were missing relationships. We were missing deep, meaningful relationships.
I imagine that you’re probably reading this thinking, “Isn’t this supposed to be a be a Real Estate blog?” “Why are we talking about relationships?”
To this, I respond very bluntly—what if, when you were looking to buy or sell your house, you could deal with a company that you knew would be looking out for your best interests? What if you knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that you were not merely a commission check at the end of a few hours of paperwork and riding around in a car? Would your home search be a bit easier? Would leaving your keys in someone else’s hands be a bit less nerve racking?
We think that building a relationship on a foundation of transparency, honesty and trust is not just good for you as a consumer, but good for us as a business. This model allows us to focus on what’s important, stay true to our values, and get home in time each day to spend time with our families. It allows us to rest assured that by the time our business together draws to an end, we will have built such a positive relationship that you will want to tell all of your friends about your Real Estate Company. Our success rests in our ability to provide you with exceptional service—how fun is that?!
Editor’s Note: We would certainly like to welcome Ryan Parish to the @Homes Realty family. Ryan recently completed his real estate licensing and brings a fresh Gen-Y millennial generation perspective to the business and we look forward hearing more and more from Ryan. Welcome aboard! – Elizabeth
