QUESTION: Sir John, what is the job of the Broker? ANSWER: Imagine. Somebody approached you to seek assistance to sell his P30Million piece of land and old house. Then you sleep over it and the following day, first thing in the morning, while drinking your coffee, you look out of the window and see the beautiful trees and feel the breeze of fine wind on your face. And then you start working with your mind, wandering, asking, "HOW DA HELL AM I GONNA SELL THIS P30MILLION WORTH OF ISOLATED PROPERTY TO THE WHOLE WORLD! After a year, the property is sold, but not by the Broker. All Brokers start atthat point, coffee, looking out of the window, and they all end up with different stories.
I know a Broker, 22 years of being a Broker straight no gap, renews license timely, attends mandatory seminar timely, wears that blue R pin all the time, carries property title folders all the time, have many friends in the Brokers Association. BUT HE CONFESSED TO ME IN ONE OF MY COACHING SESSION THAT HE HAS NEVER EXPERIENCED MAKING OR CLOSING A SALE! His source of income is something else, not real estate service.
Ano ba ilalagay ko na rules sa http://iporesp.org website? Pwede na siguro, "Buyer Hanapin Mo, Hindi Kapwa Ahente". Or pwede rin, "Ang Street Peddling ay Para Lang sa Turon at Taho, hindi sa Real Estate". Hehehehe.
Or pwede rin, "Ano Silbe ng Lisensya, Pag Wala kang Benta?"
Or pwede rin, "Yang pang lisensya at pang CPE mo, itaya mo na lang sa Lotto, mas may chance ka pa manalo".
Or pwede rin, "Kung Buyer or Seller ka na naghahanap ng HONEST na Broker, piliin mo yung umaamin na wala pa siyang benta".
Or pwede rin, "Ang pinaka top earner ng mga miyembro ng Association ay yung nagpaparenta ng sarili nilang ari-arian".
Or pwede rin, " Ang real estate brokerage ay libangan lang yan ng mga pensionadong retirado."
Or pwede rin, "Ang Buyer Mo, Mangongomisyon Yan Sayo, Mas Malaki Pa Share Nya Kaysa Sayo".
Or pwede rin, "Walang BIR na magpapakapagod maghahabol ng Broker, kasi alam nila na walang kita yang profession na yan".
Or pwede rin, "Anak, bigyan na lang kita ng allowance habang buhay kesa mag-aral ka ng 4 years Real Estate Broker" !!!!! Hehehehe!
