What to look for in your salesperson

Beside the things you would expect from a sales professional, there is an added key ingredient – enthusiasm.


Business mentor Sean from Psychotactics.com recently described it in the words of American motivational speaker and author Brian Tracey:


“Sales is a transfer of enthusiasm from one person to another”


In addition to talent, experience and everything else, your agent must have enthusiasm. This spreads like a bushfire. It fuels the agent’s confidence in the product, your home. It excites buyers.


I was invited to pitch for a property bordering Cornwall Park. It was leasehold with a substantial ground rent and the 21 year renewable date was looming. Leasehold presents as a challenge to any agent, but I wanted to give it a go. I was excited about the size and presentation of the home, the brilliant park-side position and the private access to the park.


The owners selected me to market their home and I sold it. After the sale they asked if I wanted to know why they chosen me. I said yes and their response was revealing.


Three agents had been called in:


  • The first agent told them how good she was
  • The second told them how hard the market was, especially for leasehold
  • I had walked in and said “Wow, I really love your home”


I believed in what I said and my enthusiasm transferred to buyers. I sold this home and two other neighbourhood properties, all leasehold.


Whatever your selling priority, pick your agent for his/her enthusiasm. It is the irreplaceable component that will bring you the best outcome.
