We’ve all heard, read or discussed “The Butterfly Effect” whether we have known it or not. Basically, The Butterfly Effect tells us the little things we do every day impact our lives in unexpected ways that can be very far flung from the current decision. Imagine what your choice of a Denver Realtor might mean in the long run.
That being said, I can only imagine how important your Realtor decision might be. Suppose just for a moment, you are relocating to Denver. Then suppose, you’ve never been to Denver before, but your new job is in Denver and the family is already in town. Now, suppose you spend some time on line, you see a nice face, you make a call and Wham, you are in a Realtor’s automobile in Denver making a critical home purchase decision.
Assume you have some special needs for yourself and your family. Let’s also assume your newly acquired Realtor either has or has no empathy for your needs. What would the differences be? Consider a couple of examples.
Is The Realtor Like You?
“I need for a Catholic School; no more than 20 minutes to work and your wife just loves to play tennis “, you might say to the Realtor. This happy face that you’ve connected with online has no religious connection. He has no idea about commuting times other than punching addresses into Google. This happy face has never stepped foot on a tennis court. Would your home purchase decision outcome be different than if the opposite were true? The effects of your new Denver lifestyle may be significantly different if the empathy quotient were dramatically different. That Butterfly Effect moving forward could be significantly different.
This move would also include the need for a Denver relocation. This move, however, requires not only the need to get your family here to start your new job. The twist here is your parents have to move with you. They want to live in an “affordable” ranch style plan within a mile of where you want to live. You might be surprised, but multi-generational needs surrounding job relocations are becoming very common.
Let’s go back to our smiley-faced Realtor in the previous example. That Denver Realtor really wants to please and works hard, goes through the mechanics of the process with grace and skill. But, personal empathy is just not there to insure the most positive Butterfly Effect.
From my years and years of experience, the use of technology and the empathy for the process combine to really make a difference in outcomes. Who will you meet as a result of your home buying decision? Who will your kids meet? Will your spouse be happy in the new location? Will Mom and Dad settle into a community that they find comfortable or worse, uncomfortable?
I would like to conclude this article with Andy Andrews’ words: “You have been created in order that you might make a difference. You have within you the power to change”. In other words, you have the power to control your own outcomes. That applies to real estate and your choice of a relocation Realtor as well. You can contact me on the form below with any questions.
