|The Cult of Jeff
After many years in the real
estate/mortgage lending business, I have learned a few
things. It will make me happy if I can help you, and
continue in my success at the same time. The opportunity for
me to help you is truly a gift for me. Your happiness will
pay me endless dividends.
The most important lesson I have learned
is that oneís relationships are most important to oneís
success. Do the right thing; try to do your best, treat each
client as if they are your best friend, relative, self, and
you cannot fail. The reward is two fold. First, I will feel
good, because each success is a reward, and second, happy
clients bring a good quality of new client. The referral
client you bring me will be pre-qualified and pre-sold. All
I have to do is give the client (friend) what they want, and
the assignment is mine. No advertising cost and no sale are
necessary. Selling often belittles the value of the product.
At the same time, I must acknowledge that
what feels the best for the client, is really most
important. The most logical choice is not the correct
solution if it causes the client anxiety. I will tell you
what I think, but not what you should feel. My job is to
listen, offer choices, and provide a valuable product that
fits emotionally, as well as financially.
This is the Cult of Jeff. Count on me, not
an anonymous corporation, or a hired drone. We will become
friends for life. You will call me anytime you have a
question, and I will call you whenever I think that I can
improve your situation. For some of our clients, we try to
rehabilitate their real estate or real estate financial
picture. It can be a two or even three step process. We are
here to help see you through.
All that it requires is my time and
determination. Most of my assignments are pretty simple.
Find out the circumstances, do some research, and match the
client to the situation. Sometimes it takes more effort and
creativity. One must be frank, especially when success
appears difficult or unlikely. But if time and effort are
required, the Broker must be willing to go the extra mile,
or one hundred miles. The willingness to push the envelope
is the key to a good agent. Bulldog Mortgage wonít quit
when the going gets tough.
More important, long after the fee that I
have earned has been spent, the pride and satisfaction of
the accomplishment will provide me an additional reward.
What else is life about? If I do something well, I can be
happy that I have given at least what I would have expected
My core belief is that the real estate
transaction, loan or sale, is a rare and important event in
a personís life. Someone you can count on is a major
asset. If one spends enough time shopping, one might find a
lower price, but at the risk that the consultant is not
fully invested in the success of the assignment. Some
believe that itís not cost effective to invest time in a
tough deal. I have discovered that in the long haul, my
dividends are likely to be great.
I will endeavor to dedicate myself to your
successful transaction. When complete, you will believe in
me: my abilities and my energy. From then on, you and those
you care about will rely on me to provide my best, unbiased
advice and consul on how to accomplish your real estate or
real estate financial goals.
My success is based on me, an individual
and real person. I promise to give my knowledge, integrity,
experience, and creativity to you, to fulfill your needs in
whatever capacity you require of me.
