RISMEDIA, Sept. 30, 2008-While some real estate agents pick just one generation to market to, others are recognizing the importance of reaching all clients across the board. Such the case for Rick Smith, today’s Realtor on the Rise. Smith has the advantage of having children in their 20’s and parent’s in their 80’s, so when it comes down to communicating, he’s well-versed for all needs.

Failure is not an option: Smith never looks at any situation as a failure, but instead as an opportunity to learn.
Having children in their 20s and parents in their 80s, Smith is comfortable with any generation. Young clients love that he can communicate with them as it relates to technology; he hears what their needs and wants truly are. Smith uses the phone as much as e-mail and tries to create a bond with clients, so that they feel they can always reach out and touch him.
