Although, there are many licensed, real estate agents, etc, the reality is, all agents are not created, or perform, equally! Since, for most Americans, the value of their house, represents their single – biggest, financial asset, wouldn’t it make sense, to carefully, select, and/ or, choose, the individual, who might best represent their interests, in the best possible way? Besides, the many skills, expertise, and experiences, a quality agent, should possess, and needs, to exceed his client’s expectations, he must have the quality of character, and principles, which differentiate, him, not merely by his rhetoric, and/ or, promises, but, rather, by what he truly, STANDS for? With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why it’s important to you.
