Choose Buyers And Sellers

 

 

A variety of clients and ages, make real estate so much fun. I may be working with a classic client who is selling a  home. I may be working with their son or daughter who may also need to buy or sell. And I may be working with one of their grandchildren who may need to buy!

Referrals bring in a mixture of clients and good clients usually refer good clients.

 

We choose our buyers and sellers.

I have heard agents who are upset by clients who call at inappropriate times, make unreasonable demands, communicate poorly and are kindness or truth impaired.

 

If you have a toxic client, the transaction will probably not go well, probably no one will be happy and probably there will be  no  referrals.

And it will cost you more ...

 

 more than money

 

We have the ability to interview our clients to see if we want to work with them. It is not just the clients who get to interview us.

If the fit is not good...

you are not losing a listing.

You are making room for special clients who need you.
