Maybe this question sounds silly, but can you ever be too involved in your transactions? One thing I'm still not sure of is how much we are supposed to be involved once attorneys enter the picture, or if the other side's client emails or calls you directly (I know that's a no no but am still interested in how you would handle), or if something else from another area pops up and threatens to jeopardize things. After working so hard to get a transaction going, I find it harder and harder to "keep my place" and watch others ruin it for no reason. How involved do you become?
A comment below has me thinking - broker's license for a salesperson? If you are solo, not head of a team or a brokerage. Annual fees can cost more with it. But is it worthwhile for knowledge, marketing or perhaps other reasons? Thanks.
Texas recently Raised The Bar to get a brokers license. I'm so glad they did. Before the change you only had to have a salespersons license for 2 years! Now it's 4 years. I became a Broker last year and have my own Brokerage. I can honestly say that you have to change your thinking 180 degrees!! There are things I love about it and things I am still trying to get used to. My favorite part of it all?? Getting to nurture and teach my agents, and watching them blossom into self confident, top producers !
