I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for years. We gearheads need to stick together and help each other out. As much as we take pride in researching and figuring things out for ourselves, we can save time and money by consulting with experts. I think we’d all rather deal with experts who understand our automotive priorities.
Imagine you have 10,000 units hard currency to spend on having your dream engine built for you. That’s ten large to have someone else do the work for you. (I know, I know. Resist the urge to say, “I’d never do that,” and just play along. I’m laying out a metaphor, okay?) Part of the deal is you can choose between two builders; the first has been building engines professionally for 10 years, the other spent the summer researching engine rebuilds on Google and various discussion forums. Which do you choose?
You go with the professional. Nothing against the guy who really wants the business and undoubtedly studied long and hard trying to prepare, but this is a serious transaction. You’ve got a lot on the line and don’t want to deal with any rookie mistakes after the fact, right? The point I’m trying to make is that we could all use a little expert advice from time to time – and expertise comes from experience. We could research buying a home or business or land ourselves, but we’d only be marginally competent at closing.
Why we’d like to meet a gearhead Realtor (or two, or three)
We all find ourselves in need of professional services from time to time. It’s not that we couldn’t figure out how to do these things ourselves, but that we want the best we can get for our hard-earned money. Now, you’re looking to buy some property. Who are you going to trust more – the Realtor listing the property you have questions about, or the Realtor you know who keeps his helmet in the trunk? Exactly.
We gearheads need to stick together.
I’d like to do business with as many gearheads as possible. It’s like Think: local, only for gearheads. I doubt it’s possible to find one Realtor who can handle any and all real estate questions around the world, but it would be nice to talk to a couple who can help us help our members make informed decisions, whether they’re buying their first home, investment property, or finding a physical location for their business.
We’ll talk about gearhead topics as usual, but I also want to see if we can’t share some advice which enlightens our gearhead brothers and sisters. Could be topics to research to be more prepared to buy/sell, or ways to protect one’s self against shady dealings, or even a look into what it takes to become a Realtor. The idea is simple: Gearheads helping gearheads build high performance lives.
