The Super Bowl got me thinking about something to do with real estate, and it’s something you can actually help me with.
This week I saw an article floating around the Internet, talking about how much people hate the Patriots.
Some poll said they’re the most hated team in football right now.
That’s just the nature of sports. Rivalries exist. Fans pick sides. No shocker there.
The Patriots certainly have their true fans, so there’s no need for them to care, or do anything about the hatred.
Besides, they couldn’t win everyone over even if they tried.
However, just one player can change people’s perceptions.
See, people who hate the Patriots hate theteam… not necessarily the individual players.
In fact, onePatriotsplayer was quoted as saying thatheused to hatethe Patriots. And now that he’s one of them, well, he doesn’t hate them anymore. Naturally.
And… his friends, family, and fans who used to hate the Patriots, now root for them. They look past what they hate about the team as a whole.
ONE member of the team… managed to change how certain people feel about the team as a whole.
I would like to be that player, in a sense, and change people’s perceptions about real estate.
So, let’s compare real estate to the Patriots.
A lot of people dislike real estate agents — as if all real estate agents are on one big team.
And people have their reasons for disliking agents.
Most agents look at it as part of the game… like there’s nothing that can be done about it, so there’s no need to sweat it.
Which makes sense to some degree, I guess.
But most real estate agentsalsotake how we are perceived to heart. (At least I do.)
They justwishthe perception were different…
… while not reallydoinganything about it.
However, I would like to.
So what frustratesYOUabout real estate agents?
See, some people reading this are my true fans — people who support me in this business despite how you may view real estate agents as a whole. I know this, and appreciate it.
But even though you might be a fan ofmine, you might still look at real estate agents as awhole with some amount of distrust or frustration.
And some of you mightnotbe a true fan of mine. (Yet.)
Maybe you simply got on my e-mail list by signing into an open house, or a form online, for instance. So, maybe you just look at me as one of the players on a team you hate… real estate agents in general.
Which is why I’m writing all of this.
I want to hearyourthoughts on what you hate about real estate. What frustrates you about the business, or agents? What would you change if you were in charge?
I won’t take offense. I’m looking at this objectively. Nothing personal.
So, please… vent, rant, complain, or gripe to me! I can’t promise you a magic pill, but I’ll listen and do what I can to solve your frustrations.
I want to change the game, wherever and however I can. In the least, I aim to change the perception of the players… one true fan at a time.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,
All our best,
Nick & Leigh Ann

"I have had the pleasure of working with Tim & Julie Schnepp, along with their staff, on two transactions to date. And I will soon be working with them again for yet a 3rd and possibly a 4th time. I have utilized their services as both a buyer and a seller. Tim and Julie, along with their staff, are extremely conscientious and results oriented. The levels of professionalism and responsiveness are unsurpassed by any other business firm I have done business with through 30 years in the financial institutions industry. They have always been immediate in keeping me up to date with negotiations and communicating any pertinent information. Their knowledge of the various housing markets throughout central Indiana were a real bonus to us as we sold our first home. The qualities of their virtual tours are unsurpassed. However, in my opinion, above all of these qualities, stands their impeccable character and integrity. In an industry not exactly known for character, they bring a refreshing exception. Their character is above reproach and for that reason, coupled with their intense professionalism and expertise, they are the only choice in real estate transactions for me."
