The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity.
Choosing right over wrong, ethics over convenience,
and truth over popularity… these are the choices that measure your life.
Travel the path of integrity without looking back,
for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
– Lucinda Bassett, “Life Without Limits”
I really like these two sentences, and I try to live my life this way. I’ll always give you the truth: the pros- and cons- of any situation. In turn, I’ll assume that you’re telling me the truth until proven otherwise. But once you lie to me I’ll never be able to fully trust you again. If I’m your real estate advisor, you need to trust me and I need to trust you.
Good people can see things differently and still respect each other. I’d rather you courteously disagree with me than pretend that you agree. Maybe you have a perspective that I didn’t think of; you might be able to change my mind.
What are you looking for in a realtor? The top thing on your list should be integrity. A great smile, a firm handshake, a cleverness with words and successful salesmanship all don’t mean a thing if you don’t have integrity.
