We asked Treasure for some tips to becoming a top agent.
Zillow: Why are you successful as a real estate agent?
Treasure: I think because I have found a niche that I am truly passionate about. I treat others how I would like to be treated and I strive to do the best for all my clients. I try hard to ensure that they are friends at the end of the transaction.
Zillow: What is the best part of your job?
Treasure: Visiting a family after they have moved into their new home and seeing them so excited. I get satisfaction knowing they got the best deal possible and that they are happy living in the home!
Zillow: What is your No. 1 tip for agents starting out on Zillow?
Treasure: Follow up on every lead that you are given and do not give up until they say they are working with another agent or say they don’t need you. It’s hard to predict when a lead could turn around. It’s like going into a store and the sales person asks to help right away. You rarely know what you want, but once you start looking around as a shopper you get a better idea. It’s the same for real estate. It’s all about the follow-up.
Zillow: What is the best compliment you’ve ever received from a client?
Treasure: As a volunteer real estate agent at Fort Carson, I work with many active duty and military members. This is what one client had to say: “One of the hardest parts of being in the military is needing to relocate so many times. It really makes it hard to buy your own home. Over the last few years, I worked with a team of agents and Treasure Davis has been the most amazing agent and friend to work with. Living in Germany and having to find a place to live on the other side of the globe is no easy task, but Treasure makes it much less stressful.”
Zillow: When you’re not selling real estate, what do you enjoy in your free time?
Treasure: I love kayaking, hiking, fishing and riding an ATV in the mountains. I also love to travel with my family to spend time on the beach.
Zillow: How do you stay active in the local community?
Treasure: I am very active in the community from volunteering at my kid’s school to being on the board of the Ronald McDonald House Charities and March of Dimes.
