I have been reading this blog written by a home owner who went through the process of trying to sell her house by herself without the help of a Realtor. It is an honest and detailed account of what she went through and how she feels about how it went. What strikes me is that we as Realtors don't do a good enough job of explaining to our clients and the public in general, what we really do. We forget to mention how much time we spend on education and research. We forget to mention the skills we bring to the table, the experience of working through many different markets, working with many different styles of negotiating, working when others are having family time and always being available to answer questions - and maybe knowing the right questions to ask.
Thank you for this blog.
