Consumers Beware the Self-Proclaimed Real Estate “Experts”

“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge”
—Charles Darwin

 

Every client, house, and transaction are different. The market is always changing and this is why I enjoy my work so much. Even in Denver’s smaller midcentury real estate niche, I learn something new every day. Denver midcentury real estate, mid century modern homes for sale.

When a Broker confidently claims to be an “expert,” I often wonder if they are suffering from the Dunning-Kruger Effect.  As the study found, those with true expertise don’t consider themselves experts, but those who over-estimate their competence do.

So beware the abundantly confident “expert” real estate agent. While confidence can be inspiring, it rarely signals competence, let alone expertise.

It’s actually better for you the consumer to work with an agent who recognizes their strengths and weaknesses. This means, if the occasion should arise, they know to seek assistance from other professionals as required by the Colorado Real Estate Commission to protect the public.
