Christian Real Estate Agent

QUESTION: What makes you a Christian real estate agent?

ANSWER:

The vision for a Christian real estate agent comes from God. Not everyone is forced to take this same approach in business, nor does this mean that a Christian real estate agent only deals with Christian clientele and Christian independent contractors and Christian employees. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Nevertheless, God influenced my husband and me to operate a Christian-style real estate business, meaning that we could combine our faith with the essential business skills that are required to operate a topnotch real estate company. We realized that we really could not separate our personal beliefs from our professional vocation. Both go hand-in-hand. And this style of living life and doing business has afforded us more of a wholeness regarding who we are and what we do as our purpose.

I would not recommend this particular undertaking of being a Christian real estate agent for everyone who is a Christian and also practices real estate as a career. This calling is tailor-made for a believing, born-again Christian who possesses the necessary skills of leadership and is willing to practically contribute to the community around him or her. To operate as a Christian Realtor®, one must first hear from God, as we did, before delving into this type of enterprise. It is an appointment that requires “faith in action.”

The first step in our business process involved the creation of a mission statement, something that could guide and steer us away from doubt, fear, and perceived limitations. Our mission statement is: “By implementing faith in God, our mission is to serve with compassion, lead with integrity, and to inspire clients in realizing their real estate dreams.”

We believe this vision has produced a healthy business and a viable outreach to other ministries simultaneously. It has been critically important to have the Holy Spirit at work within us in order to bear lasting fruit -- the kind of fruit that can only be produced by love. “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit -- fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name” (John 15:16). It has been an honor to see how God has worked through our experiences, and specifically through Cherise Selley as a Christian real estate agent.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
