Quiet the Extrovert

To get somebody’s attention, whisper. If that’s true why does society seem to value the extrovert? Susan Cain wrote the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. Read her summary in the September October Realtor Magazine. The link above should take you there. I read this book a few years ago and gave my copy to Gina. She’s a model of all that is great about introversion. Enough said. I could probably end this right here, but while I am more of an introvert, I have some extrovert tendencies so of course I have more to say.

Susan Cain knows introversion “is not seen as a prized trait in our culture…”. Too bad for our culture. Just try getting anything done with nothing but extroverts all around. Can you think of one example where introverts saved the back side of extroverts? Apollo 13 Mission Flight Control comes to my mind.

Lots of praise is given to the extrovert. She’s a leader. He’s a mover and shaker. She participates in class discussion. I say so what. You may appreciate Quiet for insight to help you dialogue with clients, or to lessen the stigma for yourself or someone in your family.  When failure is not an option, the introvert personality is the prized possession.

The real estate transaction, disclosure, and confidentiality are the business of a Wisconsin licensee. It's in the transaction where the skill of the licensee, and their commitment to the law where the public is protected or placed at risk. What you see REALTORS do to brand themselves and their firms, promote their service, advertise, and process paper do not require a license. I believe negotiations to create and honor a real estate purchase agreement is where the agent has the greatest value in a transaction. Paying professional fee rates for the administrative services is a choice consumers deserve. Old business model driven commission rates are taxing the home equity of American home sellers. Essential Real Estate was created to put more money in the hands of the consumer by eliminating expenses for the firm and charging a fair price for the real real estate service.
