[picappgallerysingle id=”7283438″]It surprised me to find that when asked, not many people could define the word faith. Even though we practice it in our everyday living.  For example, we have faith when we get into our car and drive through an intersection, believing that the opposing traffic will stop at their red light and not collide into us. We also exercise faith when boarding an airplane believing that we will arrive at our destination safely.  So why is it so easy to practice faith in some areas of our lives and not others?  Faith has been defined as: faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1KJV).  So let me ask you this: do you have faith in the professionals that you work with?  Do you believe in the capabilities of your real estate broker?  There are many unseen’s that are done for you behind the scenes to coordinate a smooth real estate transaction.  When your home is listed, you might see the sign go up, a lock box put on, internet marketing, postcards and brochures. But there are many other factors being considered that are unseen: the networking at board meetings or office meetings, late night phone calls to prospects, follow up calls and correspondence with brokers who have shown the home– just to name a few. 

 If you are a buyer,  you might have the misconception that your broker merely drives you around and shows you homes for sale. What a glamorous job, right? Consider this, the time spent searching the MLS, previewing homes and lining up property.  And that’s just the beginning!  After going under contract, you real estate broker meets dates and deadlines for loan applications, earnest monies, loan conditions, title, home inspections, surveys, covenants, well inspections, property insurance, home warranties, settlement figures and closings.   Time is also invested in completing contracts and related paperwork as well as meetings with the clients to go over paper work, phone calls….the list goes on and on. 

So therefore, I encourage you to have faith in the one who is advocating for you~ your  real estate broker.

    I’ve read a few of your articles while I have been here on your site and some I have disagreed with, and I almost abandoned ship but at the last minute I happened upon this particular article and I have been wondering about this, so I guess I will come back for more posts in the future.
