Yesterday a man retired after 46 years of performing his job at a high level, so highly that he's already in Cooperstown for his skills announcing baseball.
If you're not a Reds fan AND have been living in a cave with no radio reception, you may have gotten through your life without ever hearing Marty Brennaman call a Reds game.
Around here, the man's an absolute legend for many reasons. If you ever want to get one right in the feelz, just watch this video of what he does for The Dragonfly Foundation, a charity that works specifically with kids with cancer.
The bottom line, Marty has credibility with Cincinnati because you NEVER doubted if he was telling you things as you saw him. He loves the Reds, but he's no "homer". If a player, manager, executive screwed up, he'd call it as he saw it. Now anyone that works in corporate American knows how risky it can be to speak your truth to those higher up the organization, but Marty did. It was expected. He'd earned the right. His credibility was unquestioned.
Credibility is something earned. I've worked with people that have it, and people that don't. Promises made and not delivered, day after day. Eventually you either learn not to work with them, or find a way to compensate for your lack of trust in their professionalism.
In real estate, the same rules apply.
The more credibility we establish with potential buyers and sellers.
Demonstrate expertise on your website about neigbborhoods, sales information, etc., and you've invested in instant credibility with a buyer.
Do the same with a seller and instead of interviewing against 2 or 3 other agents for the listing, you're the ONLY agent involved. It's your job, time to get after it.
And credibility isn't limited to just buyers and sellers, but with other agents.
If you've worked with an agent before, you've either got credibility with them or you're in trouble (and so our your clients).
As the saying goes, better to underpromise and overdeliver than get that flip flopped.
