"There can be only one..." -number one...

- A quick quote from the movie "Highlander".  If you are not a fan, this one may have slipped you by.

However, in the Santa Clarita real estate world the same holds true, "There can be only one..." - One number 1 agent, One top producing real estate agent, One "BEST" real Number one Santa Clarita real estate agent on Active Rainestate agent, One BEST SUPER VOTED Number 1 Santa Clarita real estate team...  But, that is not what I am seeing when watching other's attempts at "pimping" themselves or their real estate teams.

What's the catch?

Apparently, if there is a small amount of GREY in the phrase, it's okay.  The other critical element to allow other agents to claim this "Prize" is that no one has filed suit against the real estate agent making the specific "number 1" claim.

Let's talk about Active Rain.  I joined back in the day - Maybe 2007ish?  When talking about the number 1 Santa Clarita real estate agent on Active Rain - I suppose you will have to  look at the points that have been accumulated during the years of blogging, responding to comments and being commented about.

So what?

The trick to being number one at anything you do, is having those that will be using your products or services see the value in that(being number one).  The truth about being number "one" most of our clients could care less.  They want someone they feel comfortable with when it comes to the Largest Investment of their Lives.  It is not about working with the number 1 real estate agent in the world.  It is about being "comfortable", "trusting", and about full on representation and communication.

But everyone said "it or they" were AWESOME...

Haven't you ever bought a product, paid for a service or watched a movie that had RAVING reviews(5 stars etc.) - was tops on all categories and was voted the best "fill in the blank" in the world???  But, after you used it, let them represent you or watched it - you sat there and wondered if you "missed something"....

It's kind of like that.  Go with who you feel most comfortable with.  The number 1's of the world might not be your "cup of tea"...

Do you believe the reviewers of the world?  Do you wonder who made them such great critics?  When you read an article saying so and so was number 1, do you wonder who did the voting or scoring?
