Building Personal Equity as Brokers …and as People

Brokers! Let’s talk about building equity in relationships.

As real estate brokers, we spend a lot of time talking about equity.

We talk about it in terms of housing: mostly making sure to help our clients build their equity in their own properties.

But what about building personal equity? What about taking the time necessary to invest in our relationships with our clients so there is equity built there too?

There is a saying in our industry that goes like this, “Folks choose brokers because there is a balance of competence and character. Your skills give them an idea of your competence but this alone doesn’t cut it.

They need to connect with you. And this is where character comes in.
