“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” -Steve Jobs
The recent passing of Steve Jobs was a huge loss not just for Apple and his loved ones, but also for technology. He was responsible for some of the biggest technological breakthroughs of our times and would have certainly surprised the world with much more had he lived another 20 or 30 years. The quote mentioned above is a bit of wisdom that he suggested to others because he saw how well it worked for himself.
A lot of people are used to working for or with companies that do an average job and therefore come to expect nothing more than average products or service. It’s almost natural for companies (including real estate) to function like this because as long as they are still making a profit, there’s no incentive to do a better job. However, for this same reason, those companies and individuals who go above and beyond end up being far more successful simply because they stand out in terms of excellence.
Higher quality work and offerings do indeed get recognized because many people just aren’t used to it. Using real estate technology and other tech solutions that simplify work help you to stand out from the crowds of average realtors. For this reason, it pays to always watch for tech solutions such as those offered by dotloop. They help you do more in less time and redefine “quality” for clients.
