Halloween is just around the corner. Kids will be out Trick or Treating in their scary costumes trying to see who can collect the biggest stash of candy and goodies. I got thinking about some of the classic costumes kids wear and realized that most of these costumes “fit” pretty well on real estate agents. While they may not be as visible as the ones the kids wear, they are pretty apparent once you describe them. Sometimes you see it in the way they act, their mannerisms, and how they conduct business. Here are just a few of the costumes you might see:

The Cowboy Agent: Kids always like to wear a cowboy hat and two six shooters. The Cowboy Real estate agent is a quick draw and can sometimes get you a good deal and sometimes miss the target altogether. Usually wears pointy toed boots and drives a pick-up truck.

The Devil Agent: You might not see the tail and the horns right away, but this agent always tries to push you into something you don’t want. Never make a deal with the devil.

The Dracula Agent: This agent sucks the life out of buyers by continually chasing and calling them trying to get them to buy something. He is Easily recognized as he has just a little dab of blood on his lip.

The Dwarf, The Pixie, The Elf, or The Hobbit Agent: These agents all specialize in short sales (of course!)

The Ghost Agent: Sometimes you see him, sometimes you don’t. This agent generally has a full time job other than real estate so he disappears a lot. He’ll give you a great sales pitch, but you can see right through him.

The Mickey or Minnie Mouse Agent: It is a small world after all. You can tell this agent because the paper work they produce is…well, it’s pretty Mickey Mouse…

The Princess Agent: This agent is pretty easy to identify. While she may not wear a tiara she is always dressed more for a dinner party than showing real estate. Her high heeled shoes aren’t great for walking the back yard after a heavy rain. She is definitely not someone that will help out during the septic inspection...

The Raggedy Ann or Andy Agent: These agents all deal with bank owned property. They look like tattered, worn out versions of their former selves as a result of dealing with some of the worst transactions in real estate.

The Skeleton Agent: This agent is easily recognizable as he is just a tad thin from the lack of food. Stay away from this agent as he has not been able to sell anything for a very long time.

The Scarecrow Agent: This agent tries pretty hard but doesn't quite get it. Some say he doesn’t have a brain so he can be very scary to work with.

The Tin Man Agent: This agent is usually pretty stiff and has no sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable but doesn’t have a heart, usually has a pocket protector, and won’t go out in the rain to look at property.

The Witch Agent: She is probably the easiest agent to recognize. She sometimes arrives riding on a directional sign instead of a broom, cackles a lot, she's kind of bitchy, and tries to cast a spell over buyers and sellers.

The Warlock Agent: You didn’t really think I’d skip over this ,did you ladies? Ditto to above except that the directional sign is not the desired mode of travel.

The Wizard Agent: This agent looks very old and wise. Has been in the business a long, long time and has the uncanny ability to somehow always wave his wand at a critical point in a transaction and make things come out all right.

The Zombie Agent: This agent is better known as The Walking Dead Agent and is similar to the Ghost Agent because he isn't very responsive to your needs.

Luckily, lots of the agents I know around here fall into the Superhero class of agents. You know, the Captain America, Iron Man, Superman, Superwoman, or Batman type of agents that work hard every day for their clients and keep the real estate world safe. They are faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a bad home inspection, and able to leap medium size hedges in a single bound. Super Agents are everywhere in the Lakes Region, but they all look normal, you know, like Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, or Diana Prince (that’s Wonder Woman.) The only Superhero that I would be concerned about doing business with might be the Hulk. If your final walk-though goes poorly it could be disastrous to your new home. He can be kind of a bull in a china closet, if you know what I mean.

So how do you find this Super Hero? Ask your friends, Superheroes do get around…
