D Abreu Real Estate Team high standards

Knowledge, integrity and experience

“A transaction cannot be improvised, requires knowledge and experience”


These are two statements reflecting our high standards and expectations:


It is important to have high standards. For the most part, life will pay any price you ask of it. The people who achieve the most in the world have incredibly high standards. It is like this with business as well. A great piece of machinery, or a great service, is like this because of the standards that are followed.

For example, the best law firms generally have the best standards. When a document leaves their office, it is generally exceptional and very well done. There are no typos and the logic is clear and compelling. The people working on the material are extremely intelligent (the law firm requires this) and of a certain caliber. Information moves trough channels and a certain quality of work becomes a standard. In contrast, the worst law firms are the opposite. Information exits their office and does not make sense and may be riddled with errors. The attorneys appear broken and may be unkempt. They may not be the smartest , and they may not be of the best caliber. Information moves through channels in the law firm, and there are few controls on how it flows.

It is like this with everything. The best constructed homes, the best cars, the best clothing, and the best furniture. All of these things are the “best” because of the high standards that they follow. If you want to achieve the most and the best possible product, you need to have standards. Just as we do in D Abreu Team.

With people it is the psychology of standards that separates the best people from the ordinary. For people with high standards, they believe that everything matters and that nothing is small stuff. They hold themselves to high standards because they know that without doing this, they will not get to where they want to go, or become the people they want to be.

When you work with exceptional people, they generally have high standards and these standards will rub off on you. You become like the people you spend time with. This is why people who come out of certain employers where high standards are rigorously enforced tend to do better in the job market. Employers believe that they too will have high standards.

You can see how standards work in the fitness arena. If someone is a professional bodybuilder, they are generally going to be far more demanding of themselves from a fitness standpoint than someone who is not. They are going to work out harder, lift more, eat differently and live a different lifestyle than someone without these sort of standards. Nothing that has great rewards will generally come without having great standards. If you do not have high standards for the people you associate with, you will not have the best network and friends. If you do not have high standards for your job, you will not have the best job.

In most cases, once you have set a high standard, you will need to work harder than someone without those high standards. That is the price you pay for having high standards. The rewrd, however, is generally a much better life and carreer. Most people do a “good” job because that is what is expected. When you do a good job, however, you get poor rewards. Most people do a good job and that is enough to get by. When you do a “truly excellent” job in anything, you will get good results. The jump to excellent from good is generally a very large one. Most people do not make this jump, and it requires much more work than simply being good. At D Abreu Team we take this to heart.
