Recently Sean Penn has been the talk of all the news channels. Journalists everywhere are either for or against his now famous interview with El Chapo. As the debate rages on regarding the ethics of what he did the thing that hit me was the questions about Sean Penn allowing El Chop to edit the article Penn was writing.
On Fox News, Geraldo Rivera felt Penn was acting a s true journalist and because he fully disclosed at the beginning of the article that El Chapo had full control over the content and Penn had not violated any journalist rules or obligations. With that in mind I started to think about what “full disclosure” means and how it applies to life today.
In so many areas of modern life we need to dig for the truth, we need to ask questions that go three layers deep in an attempt to reveal true intentions. The Internet and social media explosion has allowed people, companies and yes terrorists to hide in the shadows. I personally do not want to conduct my life and my business this way
So in the spirit of full disclosure here is what I want people to know about my professional services as a Realtor. My mission as your real estate professional is:
To provide you with the most relevant market information helping you make a well informed buying, selling, investing decision. As part of my dedication to providing excellent service to my clients I have committed to a variety of educational opportunities to enhance and keep my skills up to date in an ever-changing business environment. I am prepared to help you through every step of your transaction.
As your Realtor I will market your home as though it were my own. I will negotiate to get you the best price with the best terms. When you need a lender, an inspector, etc I can refer you to some of the best in the business – these are people I would use on my own home. I will treat your transaction as though it were my own.
