How to help real estate agents become more aware

Most real estate agents would tell you that they are often stimied whenever they need to interact with a client who is blind or visually impaired or for that matter with a client with a disability. I have some tips to help you get started and you can always add to this list as you go along.

  1. Listen carefully to the needs of your client.
  2. Do not be afraid to ask questions directly pertaining to the needs of your client.
  3. Before you sit down with your client, do your research to ensure that you understand as much as you can about the disability of your client. For example: In the case of someone who is blind or visually impaired; you need to ensure that they can read your documents, that they can communicate with you as independently as possible, and that you can provide proper guiding techniques to them if needed.
  4. Get comfortable with your client. Ask them if they would like you to provide any sort of assistance to them. IE, guiding, description of surroundings, documents in alternate formats such as large print, or electronically.
  5. Be prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that your client is comfortable with you. That they can trust your guiding techniques and your descriptions of surroundings.

Too often, real estate agents missout on this aspect and as a result they lose clients with special needs.

This should be a good start for you.
