Definition Advocate-a person who speaks or writes in support or defense of a person, cause, etc.
In this day in age with technology and the world of information. As consumers and even as professionals are overwhelmed with data information and the ability to easily access everything. can Filter through all of this information at times . When I started real estate days we’re different I held all the information Buyers and Seller needed the real estate agents for access of this information. So agents did not have to build their craft and skills. I know many agents did not know the art of negotiation and even understanding their product houses.
I watched as Zillow and other Technologies change the industry I made the better agents better. The low-hanging fruit real estate agent worthless. I’m not here to judge any agent . If you as a buyer or seller . Are not learning from your process of the purchase or Selling from your Real Estate agent. You Feeling like you cant ask any question of your Real Estate agent . Then you dont have advocate Real Estate agent on your Side .
I watch Family Member purchase House with out even understanding How property Tax Assessment Work Because They didn’t want work with Buyer agent or even check with me and I fail to educate them . They thought They were saving money . All Real Estate Agent are all the same . I find the house ( online ) and They just open the Door . Most are nice but they don’t add anything . In some Cases My Family Member are correct not all Real Estate Agent are equal . All New York Real Estate agent need to have license to do your jobs but some just do a job . Some work their passions . They want to learn everything they can so they can best educate their Buyers and Sellers .
I have seen Buyer purchase there house with out ever see CMA (comparable market analysis) Most Buyer or Seller don’t even know what this is . I angry say it Real Estate Agent dropping the Ball as an real Estate agent . I say this to the Agent you Failed . Every Deal Buyer and Seller Should have seen this Report . Doesn’t matter it Fasting moving market or Slow moving Market .
Real Estate ever changing so Its the Real Estate agent to stay a head of the Market . They can do this by always putting their Clients interest first . Real Estate Agent who are Advocates understand this . You will see this in everything they do in the Real Estate Business .
Real Estate agent are not to be perfect but they must be Truth worthy everything they do in this Business . Work to be the Best . As markets Change With More and More Technology . It will be More and More important for Customers to find Advocates Real Estate Agent .
