Real Estate Brokers Agents Expand Their Horizons- By: John Cutts
Now is not exactly a great time for people to be real estate brokers agents. The foreclosure crisis has hit the housing market of the U.S. hard and has forced lots of real estate agents and brokers to close shops or find employment in other areas outside of real estate. Not so with Greg Harrelson.
Harrelson, a Myrtle Beach real estate broker, did not close his Century 21 Harrelson Group real property firm and he did not look for another field where he can earn his income. Instead, he just expanded his services in the same field by getting into real estate coaching.
Harrelson's firm is one of the very few real estate agencies that were able to ride the tide of foreclosure. Even when the worst of the housing market caused other property firms to shut down, Harrelson's agents continue to close an average of 40 home sales each year.
The broker has been in the real estate business for over 17 years. In 1991, he purchased a Century 21 franchise and after spending almost ten years under the tutelage of a California real property expert, he believes that now would be the ideal time to teach to others everything he has learned about the business.
According to Harrelson, during the peak of the housing industry, he averaged around 300 sales in one year. This sterling performance is just one reason why he decided to be a guide for brokers agents who are trying to make their way into the confusing world of real estate. So far, Harrelson has started his foray into coaching by working with several top real estate agents in the Myrtle Beach area.
He is also developing several Web sites related to real estate, with one of them aimed at launching his Career Coach services. He states that real property brokers and agents have responsibilities towards their clients to provide them with sound advice and help them get the properties they need under the most reasonable terms. He also emphasizes the need for real estate brokers agents to understand the different situations for each client and guide them towards making a decision that is appropriate for their particular situation.
