It's all about being real.  

Real buyers buy.     

And real sellers sell.  

Absolutely nothing complicated about it.

Rinse.  Repeat. 

"Finding" them takes skill.   

And that is typically not found in a classroom.

When I meet with my pre-approved Buyer to start looking at houses, one of the first questions I ask is, "If we find the perfect home today, are you ready to make an offer?" If they hem and haw, I try to figure out what their hesitation is and see if we can address it. If not, they're not ready.

The “ready and willing” means the broker has to produce a buyer who indicates that he or she is prepared to purchase the property and is willing to enter into a purchase contract.  The “able” refers to the buyer’s financial ability to comply with the terms of the contract related to the purchase price, loan approval and cash payments.
