Does It Make A Difference What Type Of Car An Agent Drives? - EP 106

October 4, 2021

On this episode of the Real Estate Fight Club podcast, Jenn and Monica will duke it out over the question- Does it make a difference what type of car an agent drives? In order to show evidence of success, Monica suggests it is important to make a good first impression with your car. But for Jenn, the type of car does not matter, it depends on person to person. 

 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Monica has heard agents talk about this a lot, and she is going to give a blanket statement of yes, it actually matters. But that doesn't mean you can't be successful if you don't have the car yet.
  • One of the main things you are trying to accomplish with a seller or buyer is confidence. Would you agree that when your buyer-seller has confidence in you that the deal is easier, you are able to do your job more easily?
  • According to Jenn, confidence and trust helps to close a deal.
  • For Jenn, it does not matter what an agent wears either, but there are some caveats. One is how you feel internally about yourself. Jenn is the type of person who drives a reasonable car  and she thinks they have a good value.
  • Jenn is also the same person who wears jeans to an $800,000 listing. There is a perception that, when she talks to people, her experience in conversation carries beyond what they were thinking before. 
  • Monica is a car person; She would spend more money on a car than a house.
  • If you roll up in some cheesy $200,000 race car with the arms that lift doors, you will lose clients, says Monica. 
  • Walt Gibler, the tiebreaker for this episode,  drives a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. He says that it is a little bit of class, but a little bit of fun as well. 
  • Walt suggests that if you don't like cars, it is ok but have a clean car no matter what it is.

 

3 Key Points:

  1. Monica says if an agent pulls up in some sort of an old car, that indicates that they might not have sold as many houses.
  2. When it comes to cars, there is a large acceptable range, and if you take care of your car, then it doesn't necessarily matter to people. It doesn't take away your confidence in you as a successful person.
  3. Tiebreaker, Walt Gibler says that a car is a direct representation and extension of who you are as a person, so it absolutely matters to him.
