The vast majority of real estate agents are extroverts. It is a characteristic that works well in the job. Agents need to be good with strangers, interview well, and be comfortable in a pretty social job. There are some introverts, too. They get the job done, and done well. They just do it more quietly, donít crow about it, and are generally very nice to work with. They also would never think to make any of the mistakes I am writing about today.
FaceBook is the place where extroverts run amok. Among my FaceBook friends are agents and brokers from all over the country and many from this area. Most have figured out how to behave on FaceBook, but some are sharing a bit too much personal information.
There is an agent who tells the FaceBook world that he isnít sleeping well, isnít eating well and canít think straight. Now, that inspires confidence.
Another agent went on a rant about how skinny jeans are for skinny people. That may or may not be true, but I donít particularly want to discuss it with a real estate agent. It tainted my sense of his judgment.
Lots of agents remark on professional sports, hobby activity, and other personal things. Mostly that seems like an introvertís nightmare, but I donít mind it. It gives me a more well-rounded opinion of him or her.
Are you FaceBook friends with a professional who you wish would stop letting it all hang out?
Do you know an introvert who finds all this pressure to be ďout in the blogosphereĒ just a nightmare?
