What makes a good negotiator in real estate? Negotiating skills play a big role in the job of a Realtor, so it’s important to find an agent that works efficiently and negotiates the best deal possible. Here are some key skills to look for in your agent:
- Good planner/organized
- Ability to think clearly under stress
- Personal integrity
- Product knowledge
- Solution seeker
- Ability to create rapport
I recently came across an episode of The Big Bang Theory highlighting the value of negotiation skills. As the clip suggests, not everyone is a good negotiator. Take Leonard and Sheldon for example – which would you rather have negotiation on your behalf? (Click image below to watch the short video clip.)
Personally, I would want to find a Leonard to negotiate on my behalf. What about you??
