“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.”
-Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881); Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
What does it mean to reveal a person’s riches to themselves? What is the mechanism by which you can even accomplish such a thing? And what does it have to do with your real estate agent?
Quite a bit, I would argue. I think a real estate agent has the power to reveal their clients’ self-possessed riches.
One, a good agent will help clients see how a home is an investment in their future. That they are investing in themselves, and the decision to do so is a mark of their own wisdom.
Two, a good real estate agent helps guide clients through an emotionally fraught transaction, which often shows they have deeper reserves of self-confidence and strength that they may have overlooked in the past.
Three, a real estate agent helps foster a sense of trust and interdependency -- that we can, in this world, rely on others to represent our best interests, and that we are not in a perpetual state of “king of the mountain” and abject self-reliance. A client with a good agent has both a friend and a professional ally.
Whether you’re buying your first house or selling your home, there’s both a tangible, bottom-line difference when working with an agent, as well as valuable intangible benefits. For me, it’s a great privilege to be a professional part of that process!
I’d love the opportunity to “the greatest good” on your behalf. Now is a great time to make your next move. Please call me at 910-352-0998 if I can be of help!
