An Example of Using Teamwork to Reach Your Goal

As a former member of the marching band back in high school, I understand the importance for each member of the band to perform his or her moves correctly in order to make the "whole" band look good. If just one person makes a misstep or turns the wrong way at the wrong time, the entire presentation can be affected.

In real estate, we often work proudly as "independent contractors" but when you stop to think about it, we have many members of our team who can drastically impact how we look to the people watching.

Are you and your mortgage advisor in sync?

Can you count on your home inspector of choice to be "in tune" with your clients?

When you work in "rhythm" with the co-op agent on the other side of the deal, doesn't everyone enjoy a better transaction?

Can you depend on your title company or closing attorney to deliver that "big finish" that will leave the fans buzzing about your performance?

It's great to "walk to the beat of a different drummer" but when you're in a marching band, walking the same walk as your teammates will help you achieve your goals of looking and sounding like one.
