Integrity Means A Lot To This Realtor: Palm Citys Horse Talk:



I have been in the business world for many years and know one very important thing. If you want to get to your goal, you must have integrityy. I think sometimes folks just totally forgets that the word is in the English dictionary.  So I decided that I would try to define integrity and what it means to me. Realtor's must believe in their Code of Ethics. Florida Realtor's Association requires every Realtor with an active real estate  license to renew their Code of Ethics  on a regular basis so we all know how we are suppose to behave and have the opportunity to sell real estate in Florida.

1. Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code.
2. The state of being unimpaired; soundness.
3. The quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness.

In selling or buying a home, we become entangled in the emotion that result form such a venture. It is incumbent upon your Realtor of choice to exercise true integrity in the face of difficult decisions, especially when it is disappointing news. A good professional Realtor remains hard at work and intent on satisfying the goals of his/her client.  In many cases, a much better result occurs if patience prevails. I remain there for my clients regardless and through the rough patches and that is where the true success of my business lies.

Integrity is one of the fundamental values that a real estate client should expect. It is the hallmark of a person who demonstrates sound morals and ethical principles at work.  A Realtor who has integrity lives his or her values in relationships with fellow Realtor's, customers and others. Acting with honor and truthfulness are also basic tenets in a person with integrity. People who demonstrate draw others to them because they are trustworthy and dependable. They are principled and can be counted on to behave in an honorable way even when no one is watching.
