It doesn't matter how many questions you have.
It's the answers that count.
As a Realtor®, you have to ask direct questions, and they need answering.
When working with a buyer or seller, some questions NEED answers. Tact is essential, but the answers are a must to get properties under contract. If you are planning to take on a client, here are a few of those questions.
-Are you working with an agent?
-Have you signed a buyer agency agreement?
-Are you 100% sure you want to work c me?
-Who is the decision-maker?
-Where do you want to live?
-Have you visited the area of the homes you want to see?
-How many will live in the house?
-What is your list of must-haves? (This can be anything from a wood-burning FP, proximity to light rail, a particular school system, style of the house, type of lot or parking situation.)
