After reading Patricia Feager's post yesterday, it puts into perspective just how much each of us do to get a property to closing.
And we do this making our clients feel like they are the only one we are working with.
We handle professional duties, follow up with agents, inspectors, contractors, title attorneys, lenders, clients and even family members of our clients. We do this while in meetings, on the phone, on appointments, emailing, texting, watching the eclipse and while working on several transactions.
Many agents have assistants, partners and even entire teams to help. But we all know that sometimes we are the only one that can deal with a specific and immediate situation.
Many of my sellers are classic clients, older, dealing with multiple challenges or an illness of a family member. This is in addition to the stress of moving.
REALTORS® need to have a high level of tolerance to take care of each situation no matter how small it may be.
With so much stress on buyers and sellers... theirs IS the ONLY problem.
They should not be hearing about your unexpected out of town company, your computer glitch, your emergency dental visit or any other crisis that has nothing to do with them.
As an agent, you must have a high level of tolerance to make each special client feel they are the only one!
How is your level of tolerance?
