Alonzo Crockett, PLMC™ Certified Real Estate Agent
Sometimes it takes a while for gifts to manifest. On the other hand some like mine were evident early in life. At the top of that list were matters involving business and music. When I received a full scholarship to college I took the opportunity to educate myself thoroughly in both areas. Soon it led me to the recording industry. With attaining the success of charting as a billboard artist, becoming a CEO of my own label, and living the life of a world class musician, I enjoyed financial success. My manager at the time was an expert in California land contracts, and over time with his prodding I invested heavily in real estate.
I made money with various deals, but invariably at some point I had to deal with unqualified realtors. Most of them completely out of their league, you know the types: the bored wealthy housewives just looking for a hobby (not to mean bored wealthy housewives can't be great), or the classic lying salespersons who only offered empty platitudes. Seriously, instead of offering comprehensive knowledge, they offered just worthless apologetic smiles! No offense but it was the quality of the agents, or lack thereof. Point blank, most of the people I hired were disappointing, even the big shots with the big names turned out to be just hype and fluff.
Losing trust forced me to do what I've always done best study, learn, and adapt based on the acquired knowledge. In 2008 the niceties by fluff artists became even less valuable than my stock portfolio at the time. I had even done research and saw what the numbers indicated; but when I presented questions to my “professional” realtor prior to the crash, his exact words were, “It’ll never happen kid”. We all know how the crash affected this nation. No need to explain what happened and dwell on the negative. There was however a gift in that miserable loss (and that one time in my life I failed to act). Experience, experience experience! That fiasco taught me a lesson, but it soon yielded a new skill and passion. I became a broker and an expert problem solver in matters dealing with real estate. It reminds me of what my beautiful mother was so fond of saying, “You go where you are called”, and I had been called to real estate. So at that time I began by specializing in dealing with the military, then senior citizens, on to short sales & saving homes, and of course eventually the luxury market!
I like to call myself the realist realtist. I do not lie to my clients while offering empty pleasantries. I do my homework, and more importantly I act in all ways to give my clients a successful transaction. No one wants to pay someone who cannot get the job done. Look, everyone knows a realtor of some kind whether in their family, friends, employees, co-workers etc., but are they a real professional concerning real estate? I'm not talking about the big office floor show types who always show well, overspend, yet under perform. I'm talking about a true specialist who can tailor a plan for the needs of the client, and most importantly get the job done. I understand the needs of luxury clientele as I have been a part of that group.
Someone who is use to excellence would be hard pressed to make due with 90% of the realtors in the luxury market today. My question for all prospective future clients, why would anyone who has attained and earned the finer things in life, cheapen out, or not go the extra mile? Why simply settle on brand X realtor in a box? Doing so only leaves your investment, YOUR HOME vulnerable. Crockett Luxury Realty's foundation is built on being honest, result driven, and of course always professional. Solving problems in real estate is an acquired skill that I have cultivated using my natural gifts. For almost ten years I have used my experience, abilities, and skills to satisfy my clients. So now do you want to hire a real estate agent? No, you need to hire a Real Estate Professional. We all know empty platitudes which I mentioned previously mean nothing. Though to me a smile by a pleased client at the end of a successful transaction is priceless!
