Han SoloAs real estate agents did you know that you have a lot in common with Han Solo of Star Wars fame?  Read on for some interesting
facts.

They never stop working

Does this sound all too familiar?  During the day, at night, on the weekends…sometimes it just seems to never end.  Work, work, work.  But this was the trait of Han Solo as well.  When he wasn’t doing his “job” of smuggling he spent it trying to stay alive.  In your business that’s doing lead generation.  But by doing this we tend to…

Be well paid

Han was the ultimate businessman.  He owned his own business, ran it lucratively and the sky was the limit, literally and figuratively.  Real Estate Agents have the same potential.  There are no restrictions on how much you can earn or sell.  How industrious do you want to be?

Not everyone likes them

I know, can you believe it?  Someone not like you?  Unfortunately it’s true.  There are those people out there who you just do not meld with for whatever reason.  And it’s not personal.  It usually boils down to some aspect of money.  Even trusty Han Solo was considered arrogant, greedy and self-centered.  A misconception on both counts that are generally not warranted because most agents are hardworking individuals with your best interests at heart.  After all this is the biggest transaction you’ll probably ever make.

They have a trustworthy sidekick

Remember Chewbacca?  How could Han operate without him?  Chewy was his right hand man, well Wookiee.  All in all, you agents do not work alone.  You have mentors and an office of leaders to work with you.  And if you’re headed for greatness, you’ll have a support staff.  A virtual partner like OS4U gives you the ability to gain and close deals with a mutually beneficial relationship.

They use the best tools

The Millennium Falcon was Han Solo’s baby and his best tool.  Real estate agents also use the best suite of tools available to them to develop marketing plans and materials, manage client relationships and run their business

Unfortunately their job can be dangerous

This one is tricky because danger can lurk at any corner but the isolated nature of a real estate agent makes them a target.  So just like Han Solo, a good blaster at your side is a must.

If you want to live life with a little adventure, become the Han Solo of real estate.  In his own words “You know, sometimes I amaze even myself.”
