How to choose your real estate service provider?


Have you ever wondered why corporations have a policy, process and procedure when hiring an employee, consultant or a vendor?

I had the privilege of working with many amazing individuals, vendors and for many organizations from various industries throughout my career as a consultant. I have attended many interviews and have had my share of great and awful interviews. I managed to pass enough interviews to pursue further in my career. Each failure had taught me to remain humble, patient and strive to do better. Every opportunity that I was hired, I felt connected with the opportunity and I was able to articulate my related experience to the hiring manager. I felt confident that I would be getting a call with an offer. When I look back, there are clear differences between my failed and successful interviews.

You may wonder, what relevance my failed or successful interviews have to do with hiring the right real estate service provider?  Let me elaborate, the listed diagram below is a recruitment process that an organization follows to hire a consultant or employee. It looks something like this and they happen in this order.

Recruitment Process

 Figure 1.0  Recruitment Process

  1. Request: A corporation submits a JD(Job Description) to agencies they work with and request for qualified candidates based on the identified requirements.
  2. Recruit: The agencies recruit for qualified candidates based on JD, where each candidate needs to submit their resumes along with rate and answer standard questions while providing references.
  3. Qualify: Submitted application are qualified using a process of elimination based on resume, answer to standard questions, experience, value, rate.
  4. Submit: The agency submit qualified candidate and the corporation makes a decision, which candidate to select for an interview based on the applications submitted.
  5. Quantify: The corporation conducts Interview with selected candidates and quantifies candidate based on fit, trust, body language, connection, and communication through a process of elimination.
  6. Offer: The organization negotiate further and make an offer to the right candidate that meets the requirement, fit with their culture,

Why would organizations do this, you ask? Very simple, by going through a recruitment process, they have a higher probability of hiring the right candidate from a bigger pool of candidates within a short amount of time, without investing any money and commitment. In the meantime, they have negotiated for the right candidate by using the process of elimination while also leaving the options open to continue to negotiate. Every time you attend an interview, the organization also learns what is going on in the marketplace, from the technology being utilized, applications being implemented and what the competition is doing differently from business, marketing, sales,  policies, procedures, and operations.
