The Jerry Maguire Approach to Richmond VA Real Estate
The Jerry Maguire Approach to Richmond VA Real Estate - Most of you reading this are likely to have seen, "Jerry Maguire", the movie that earned Cuba Gooding Jr. an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actor category and had us all quoting, "Show Me the Money!" for months following. When I watched it, I thought it was a good movie but nothing special. That probably has something to do with the movie being released when I was just 21 years old. It was a sports movie and a love story, period.
Now that I am a few months shy of 38, a Richmond VA Realtor
, and the business owner of the RVA Home Team, a Richmond VA real estate
group with Jefferson Properties, I have a whole new appreciation for that movie. Yes, it is still a sports movie and a love story, but I have come to realize it is the writer's expression of the "cynical, cynical world" we live in today. The "Show Me The Money" world where a sale is more important than the person.
We have had our share of difficult transactions over the years here at the RVA Home Team
, running into the Bob Sugar's of the world. You know, those agents who care more about a commission than their clients. The agents who give the profession a bad name and make you cringe. On the other hand, we have also had the pleasure of working with some of the most honest, full of integrity real estate agents out there. When we work with the latter, all the players on the field get to experience the thrill of a win-win. No losers left hanging their heads as they walk off the field.
Here at the RVA Home Team with Jefferson Properties, we take the Jerry Maguire approach
to Richmond VA real estate. We focus on giving more attention to the needs of our buyers and sellers and, in doing so, the reward of our commission just follows. Our motivation is not money. Our motivation is, simply, doing a good job. "Caring for them, caring for ourselves and the games, too." The ironic thing is, when you run a business with integrity, the money just follows because people share how you made them feel and referrals are the backbone to our Richmond VA real estate business.
Why am I writing this? I really don't have a good answer for that other than...intention. Did you know the over 90% of buyers start their real estate search online? How do you know who to trust? How do you cut through the clutter and find an agent who truly has your back? It is difficult. In writing this, I want you to see the intention of the RVA Home Team with Keller Williams Realty. Sure, you can read our testimonials
and get a pretty good picture of what we are all about - YOU. While those are great, I think it is imperative to read the "mission statement" from the founder of the team. That's right, "not a memo, a mission statement."
