A Market Like No Other:
First and foremost, our market is unparalleled. In the current conditions, buyers are faced with putting in offers that can be significantly higher than the asking price—sometimes as much as 50, 60, 70, or even 100k over. Yet, there are no guarantees of securing the property. Offers may receive counteroffers, or they may not receive a response at all. On the flip side, sellers' agents often find themselves reviewing an overwhelming number of offers—25, 30, or even 40 for a single listing. The amount of work involved in handling this volume is truly remarkable.
The Tireless Efforts of Bay Area Realtors:
As real estate professionals, we strive to provide the best possible service to our clients. We work diligently to get buyers under contract, which sometimes requires submitting multiple offers before success is achieved. Similarly, sellers' agents face the task of reviewing and responding to numerous offers, ensuring that each one is given the attention it deserves. Regardless of the number of offers received or the time invested, the commission remains the same—a testament to the dedication of Bay Area realtors.
The Demanding Nature of Our Industry:
Real estate is not an easy field to navigate. In fact, the failure rate among agents is a staggering 88 percent. This means that seven out of eight agents who enter the industry will not succeed within the first two years—a chilling statistic indeed. Considering the challenges and demanding nature of our work, it's crucial that we acknowledge the immense efforts put forth by Bay Area realtors.
Support and Appreciation:
To all buyers and sellers out there, I urge you to recognize and appreciate the exceptional service provided by Bay Area realtors. Whether you're in the process of buying a property or considering listing your home, show your respect and support for the invaluable work they do. Let them know that you stand by their side, appreciating the tireless efforts they invest in helping you achieve your goals.
A Special Message to Realtors:
If you're reading this and you're a realtor, I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to you. Working alongside some of the top producers in the industry has been an absolute pleasure. The way they communicate, collaborate, and exemplify professionalism is truly inspiring. As one listing agent told me, "Deepak, I want to be the listing agent people want to work with." If each of us embraces this mindset, our lives—and the lives of those we work with—will become simpler and more harmonious.
Bay Area realtors are a force to be reckoned with. Their unwavering dedication, exceptional service, and tireless efforts make them stand out in the real estate industry. To all the amazing realtors out there, know that your hard work and commitment do not go unnoticed. And to those seeking assistance from a realtor, remember to show appreciation and support for the outstanding service they provide.
