Talk As Though You Were Recorded All The Time.

Advice to share with others  entering our business.


watching listening


Whenever talking  real estate, it's not a bad idea to be a bit paranoid. 

Property owners have cameras and listening devices in their homes. 


When talking on the phone or leaving a message, speak as though your buyers, your sellers, other agents, the media, your broker or the Real Estate Commission were listening.


Conversations overheard at a restaurant, in an office setting,  shopping or at a coffee shop can be a disaster to your business.


 The next time you are out having coffee with a friend, client or colleague, think about what you say, how you say it and who might be listening. 

The public has ears!!

 You may be discussing matters that should not be heard by others.
