What does a company that shows you how to install a car seat have to do with Real Estate? Everything!

Last week my wife sent me an email (yes, that is how we communicate) and said that it was my job to know how to install the car seat into a cab and our car prior to bringing Baby Z home from the hospital. Of course I got a touch nervous as my handyman skills are not so great.

I posted on Facebook about my task and I received a  bunch of ideas. The easiest one was contacting, The Car Seat Lady. Emily, one of the partners quickly emailed me back and told me where to meet her on Saturday morning, 9am in front of the fire hydrant, between Broadway and Riverside drive.

On my way to learn how to put a car seat into the car, properly!

We met promptly and the minute I met Emily, I knew I was in good hands and she would teach me the best ways to protect our baby in a car, by installing the car seat properly.
So what does this post have to do with real estate and working with professionals that know what they are doing? EVERYTHING!
I could have easily watched a few You-Tube videos and figured it out myself or read a few instructional manuals. Sort of like going to the multiple real estate websites for data on whats on the market, what’s sold and closed..............(*Data is great, but it does not have the human component)

There would be a possibility that I would have placed the car seat in the car 100% perfectly, but knowing me and my handy skills, it would have been 78-83%.
Same goes with a real estate search on your own, sure, some of you will get a 100%, but most will be 78-83% on your own, do you really want to risk that?
My school of thought.......Hire a professional with integrity, knowledge of the current markets, a hustler and someone who gets back to you quickly via email, text, phone etc.

If your tooth hurt and it needed to be removed, would you pull it yourself or go to some cheap dentist? I think you know that answer..................Go with a pro.
