PREFACE FROM AdoptAnAgent
Having a higher education or PHD does not make "any" Real Estate Agent better than the rest. Neither is the country you were born in or your nationality. There is only one reason this section exist, "because having a common ground provides a good starting pace for any relationship".
So maybe you share a birth place, went to one of the same schools, or your nationality finds a match. Or, even more important, maybe English is not your first language. Regardless, of any common ground you may find - this is not the "only" criteria you need to consider!
