What's it really like to be a real estate seller? Let Success Kid and Condescending Wonka tell you.
Real estate sellers are all too familiar with the hardships and triumphs that come with the job, from trying to nab a buyer’s attention to shaking their hand once a deal’s been made. Between those two points is the rollercoaster of emotions that only they can tell you about. And when words fail to give you an idea of what they go through, well, memes can paint a thousand words. Those, and GIFs. Consider this a fair
warning assessment if you're thinking about working in real estate.
As soon as malls open and you’re manning a booth with other sellers:
When someone takes your flyer and drops it as they walk away:
What you’re thinking when you reach the end of your spiel and the inevitable happens:
Getting to sit down after a whole day on your feet talking to potential buyers:
When a client promises to buy from you, but goes with another seller:
When you’re showing a home you haven’t memorized yet…
… and the feeling you get when it's over:
What learning about a new property selling technology made you feel like:
Remember when you were new and bragged about ANYTHING you've accomplished, no matter how small?
How about spending your day off at the mall, and then hearing a fellow agent delivering the same spiel as you?
And when you find out your boss just raised your quota:
When a potential buyer gives you attitude, you just want to say...
... but what you end up doing is...
... because they really don't get it.
Sometimes you lose a sale so big you can’t get over it...
... and you feel just a little upset with the seller who took your client.
But other times it's the little things that make your day.
And when you finally close a deal...
... the rewards can be awesome...
... or REALLY awesome.
