Looking for a Real Estate Agent? This week’s Spotlight is Rick Elrod. Rick has been with Loss Realty Group since January of 2014 and would be happy to assist you with your home buying or selling needs. Get to know Rick a little more with the following Q & A
Q – What do you like best about working in Real Estate?
A-The autonomy, the people in our office, and finding homes for people, so they can be as happy as possible.
Q-What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the business?
A-The amount of work that goes into getting any business. Whether it’s a listing or going all out to help a client find a home that fits their budget and needs, there is effort, for sure, but more often, tons of time.
Q-What advice would you give someone that is thinking about venturing into Real Estate?
A-Plan on lots of time and energy. Know that many people don’t think agents do much. Most new agents find out there is lots of work and paperwork. Some people don’t know or don’t respect this. It’s OK — just know you may get frustrated when you put in tons of effort and they just walk away — move on to helping the next client. Also, most of the people you know now already have a relationship with an agent, so you are really starting from scratch!
Q-What areas do you service?
A-I’ve lived in NW Ohio for over 45 years. I will go wherever the client needs me to go!
Q-When you aren’t working, what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
A-Because I’ve dedicated my time to making RE my career, my free time is limited, even though my kids are grown — I adjust my schedule to fit my clients’ schedules. However, anyone who knows me, knows I will be playing golf, given a chance. Then maybe some sleep!
