We Serve Our Client Best By Being Humble

Humble Defined: Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking less of yourself.

Humility relates to minimizing the selfish ambitions and vain conceit which is so prevalent in the real estate industry today. “Look at me, I am one the top-ten selling agents in Orange County.” If we think like this it is all about my success, my needs, and we are no longer functions as a company – long removed from a team – but rather a group of self-serving narcissist driven by the “I am always right” syndrome. If a company is not humble they are paying attention to themselves and not their clients and they will not succeed.

Character is developed in the small issues and then is shown in the big issues. At the grocery store do we always push the cart back where it belongs, or pick up that piece of trash lying on the ground right in front of us as walk across the office? Nine-times out of ten a relationship with a client or a key vendor will crumble when stubborn pride enters the equation or “It is my ball and I am going home.”

Humility is not about being wimps in the real estate marketplace. It’s about doing the exact opposite of what our competition expects, taking the focus off of ourselves and focusing it our clients and team-members. This is what a purpose driven career looks like: this is what a purpose driven company looks like.
