Should Real Estate Brokers start charging consultation fees?

According to the RESA LAW, Real Estate Brokers are professionals. But, are we treated as professionals?

Our Pediatrician gets 500 – 600 pesos every time we visit for check up. Lawyers in notary public offices get 200 pesos for their signature. These are the only professionals I can think of at the moment. But I’m sure most, if not all other, professionals get some kind of consultation fee every time they meet with a client.

Don’t you think it’s time for us to charge something every time we present a property? Or, each moment our time is asked? Wouldn’t charging consultation fees help us identify clients who’s serious or not? If we should charge consultation fees, how much do you think is reasonable?

Please share your thoughts below.

Brokers Should Dress Like Piolo Pascual

I have been with too many Real Estate Brokers who present property wearing just jeans or shorts. No wonder we are not treated like professionals in this country. We don’t get respect because most of us don’t clothe ourselves respectably.

It’s time for a change!

In this article, Piolo Pascual, considered one of the best dressed in his industry, imparts a simple advise on dressing. It may be impossible to look like him, but at least we can dress respectable like him. Casual, but elegant can work in most of our viewings.

Even if we don’t close the sale, at least we gain some respect if we dress well.

PRC ADVISORY: Real Estate Brokers Licensure Examination

In the light of a communication from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) through Atty. Julito D. Vitriolo that it is not inclined to issue an equivalency evaluation for applicant-graduates from foreign colleges and universities for the Real Estate Brokers licensure examination on March 18, 2012, the Commission is constrained not to accept applicant-graduates from abroad.

Please be guided accordingly.
