I was having a conversation today with my girlfriend. During this conversation we were discussing what makes Sergeant Real Estate different from any of the other 1300 Realtors throughout the Gulf Coast. She asked me the question; "why did you want to become a Realtor?" And without hesitation my response was, "I like helping people." That's when it really hit me, that's what makes Sergeant Real Estate (me) different from everyone else. Whether you are selling your home "for sale by owner" or through another Realtor, I'll still help you if you have questions. In the Military I am an instructor. I spend almost everyday teaching people how to do their new job. Many of them are intimidated by the job, have no confidence in their abilities, and have no idea what to do to succeed. And when I'm done with them the have so much confidence in themselves and feel like they have overcome everything to succeed. It gives me a true sense of pride to know I was able to help them. Thats the true reward. It's the same feeling I get when helping someone sell their home or purchase a new one. For me, it's really all about the people. Don't get me wrong, getting a paycheck is always nice and I'm not going to lie and say I'd do this job for free. I wouldn't. It is A LOT of work. Just like I wouldn't be in the military for free, yet I still enjoy my job. But honestly, the biggest reward is the piece of mind I bring to my clients. I come across many Realtors on a daily basis and so many of them say things the ultimately boil down to wanting a paycheck. I think so many of them forget that their paychecks are connected to people's lives and it's the people they should most worry about.
I just wanted to take some time to share with you Sergeant Real Estate's philosophy on being a Realtor in Ocean Springs / Biloxi MS.
