Core Values: #2
At GLRE we have a set of core values that keep us focused on why we’re Realtors, how we treat our customers, and what the community means to us.
When I first started as an agent, in 2009, I asked a colleague, friend, and veteran Realtor (Charlie Clark) what did he like best about being a Realtor. Without missing a beat, he said it was the friendships. At the time, I thought that was just a friendly thing to say over Manhattans.
But it’s true. At Green Light Real Estate, we’re not only friends (family even?) with each other, but we’ve become friends with lenders, appraisers, inspectors, contractors, Rita who delivers the mail, Sam at Pho Thai Express, and more.
It’s really common for our customers and our clients to become our friends too. During a transaction, we get to know a lot about people’s lives. Which makes sense when you think about it. For those couple months, buyers and sellers spend more time with and more time talking to their Realtor than just about anyone else in their lives.
Here are some recent examples of sincerely caring about the people in our community:
We recently had buyers who were interested in keeping an AirBnB gig going, but they couldn’t because they didn’t have a property manager. Well, I happen to know someone who does just that. So, we made the introduction. That helps the buyers, the sellers, and the manager. And it comes from sincerely caring.
We have another transaction where the seller’s situation changed dramatically from when she got into contract. The best thing for her to do was to not sell the house. While some real estate brokerages might have tried to talk her out of that, we changed gears and, in our client’s best interest, worked at unraveling the sale so she wouldn’t have to sell.
Our company holiday party this year was at Twin City Lanes. Why? Because with kids, bowling, laser tag, and the arcade is more fun than just dinner! We’re all a big family, and all ages of the Green Light family had a great time.
Just this week we even had a company virtual happy hour. I know everyone’s lives are busy and unpredictable. Even so, many of the Green Lighters took time out of their days to have a social hang with our colleagues.
The list goes on and on. It’s great to keep “good news” in mind. At Green Light Real Estate, our core value of “sincerely caring” makes sure we’re doing the right things, and we hope, makes people’s lives just that much better.
