Sounding happy while being professional, John Taylor is a Realtor with HardinHomes.com that one should not miss. His infectious laugh can make anyone’s gloomy day turn right around. John did not always think he’d be in the business of selling homes but low and behold, he found that this is what makes him happy and he said, “I really enjoy what I do.”
Being a Realtor has its ups and downs and John shares his challenges:
There are hidden blessings with his chosen career path such as “being able to help people find the home of their dreams” and HardinHomes.com is a big part of that. He also gets a majority of his listings through his referral networking so he finds himself very busy managing these listings and making sure that he is always on top of them.Helping clients find the right home for their families, assisting in financing, overcoming issues with home inspections and property conditions.
When dealing with hard clients, John makes sure that he treats the clients as professionally as he can and “tries to give them the customer service that he would expect as well as being polite and patient with them.”
One question that he answered honestly was that if there was one thing about being in this business he could change, it would be the “consistency of the income.” He does make sure he is on top of his game by drawing inspiration from “people that I admire, trying to do the best in my life, being honest, and being careful.”
As a resident of Hardin County, he pretty much knows the area like the back of his hand and can give potential home buyers all the much needed information they might ask for and give tips on the best places to dine and have fun with family and friends.
Realtors face a lot of hardships when they are starting out in their careers. John’s top priority, however, is to always make sure that buyers and sellers alike are informed before going through with the process of buying or selling their houses. The local market in Fort Knox, KY, according to John is pretty stable.
“The local market is pretty consistent. It’s a fairly consistent market with no huge ups or downs but pretty steady… About 40% of my business deals primarily with military families.”
Always welcoming inquiries from buyers, he can quickly grant anyone’s request to tour a house they would like to see on short notice. If not, he makes sure that house tours are scheduled as soon as possible. If he really cannot make it out, he makes sure that he refers the buyers to another HardinHomes.com realtor that can help them out.
All Realtors have a specialty and John is not spared from this. He believes his magic is in selling residential homes versus commercial or multifamily.
When asked what sets him apart from other Real Estate Agents, he wholeheartedly says that,
“At HardinHomes.com, we're all fantastic Realtors, I don't know…[not comparing himself to his fellow agents] I think I do well in my customer service, my honesty, and my ability to explain the entire process to my buyers and/or sellers and still make them feel comfortable and knowledgeable about what’s going on.”
For anyone who wants to get in the field of real estate, John’s advice is, "Be motivated and disciplined. Don't get discouraged too quickly. It takes a while to get good in this business but once you do, it’s really worth it."
The flexibility of his schedule and the ability to control his income is what motivates John to stay in this business. When asked if he were not in the real estate business, he jokingly admits he'd want to be in movie production and advertising.
Buying or selling homes on your own can be a really tough task; that is why people like John make sure that all the steps are looked over with the utmost scrutiny and acumen. He makes sure that the entire process is a breeze from start to finish. Don’t hesitate to contact John when you need someone to help you through the process of buying or selling your home. He is one Realtor that you will definitely feel right at home to talk with.
To sum up John in a quote, it would have to be one from Aristotle:
"Pleasure in the job, puts perfection in the work."
