I would appreciate any advices you may have regarding people who have come here from other countries, and for whom English is an additional language.
Often the advices of Brokers to agents from other Countries is that they should only work with people who are from their Country. Clearly that is much too difficult to do, and sustain a reasonable lifestyle as a real estate agent, and growingly moreso.
If you receive an email from an agent with stilted language or broken English, and odd spellings created by the spellchecker (like shell instead of shall), do you overlook these things? Or do you expect an agent to be fluent in the English Language?
Accent alone can be quite charming, but in a field where misrepresentation is quite hazardous and good communication is key, can a Broker afford the risks that come with misunderstandings created by language difficulties? And yet it seems to be discrimination to not hire people with language issues.
Are there programs that are a big step up from spell checking, that assist people with these difficulties? Any advices appreciated.
