|The Most Important Thing In Real Estate
Introduction by Brian Shaver
My career in real estate started 25 years ago as a residential appraiser mostly
because I liked a few books on the subject of RE investing. I thought hmmm... fun job
and a lot of time away from an office environment this could have potential. Plucking
away at the learning curve I received a bachelors of science degree in finance,
emphasising in RE. As it turns out this industry is a great mix of getting out meeting
people and spending time in my home office with just a computer. Over the last few
years I've become fascinated with web sites and online marketing. I spend a lot time
learning about digital marketing and technology within the industry, probably more than
anything else short of time with my family. We've all been told if you do something you
really enjoy it's like you never have to go to work at all.
Looking back 25 years I've always been around homes. I've determined values,
cleaned, polished, planted, marketed them, built just about anything, and sold them for 8
years now. I don't know if I've ever really had a favorite part of the real estate industry.
My opinion has changed several times. Right now I'd have to say technology and
marketing is my favorite. It's fascinating to learn why people decide to call me for a real
estate transaction or look at a property I'm selling. It seems you can greatly control how
many people will stumble on your listings or phone number, but after that you have to be
a genuine asset. I guess that's probably the most important thing in real estate,
being a real and genuine person. It certainly seems at least equal to having
experience and knowledge.
