Contract closing time
Those who sell or intend to sell real estate must be fully aware that such negotiation requires patience, since it involves a lot of bureaucracy and demands a certain amount of time from the professional and the people involved. From the request to search for the property to the delivery of the keys, many things can happen and delay the completion of the sale / rental.
Unveiling the customer
Especially at the beginning of the negotiation, people are still discovering their wants and needs, so the broker must almost play a detective role, choosing the right questions to analyze the customer’s profile. Each business is a new battle for the realtor, since there are extroverted, introspective, demanding, reserved consumers, and all of this can influence the way the professional should act.
Know the product you sell and the region in

Like the hummingbird, the broker has a big heart, which results in its great resistance. For this reason, the broker feels love and dedication for what he does, helping people in their searches for the residence that best matches the needs of each family.
In addition, the hummingbird (or hummingbird) is also used as a symbol of luck, good weather, happiness and joy. These are characteristics that must always be present in the daily life of the broker, who must focus on his target and be motivated to fight the recurring battles.
