Don't Say Anything

 

 

Received a call this week from a  potential client who was careful about answering any of my questions.

When I mentioned that whatever we spoke about was confidential...this person was at ease and able to open up.

 

 

They did not have to ask 

 

 'Please Keep This Confidential.'

 

Confidential Margaret Rome

 

 

 

As a former Registered Nurse, I take confidentiality serious. 


Not too long ago, a friend of mine was quite upset  because I did not let her know that her family member had purchased a property with me.

  My response to my angry friend.

It was not my place to share that confidence. 

 

No, I did not sign a confidentiality agreement. 

Confidentiality, to me, means you don't talk about another person's business with someone else.

I respect the privacy when given someone's trust and confidence. 

 

 You Don't Have To Ask!

Hi Margaret

I think many buyers and sellers are not always aware about confidentiality, and its importance, unless it's mentioned to them. I always do, just to be sure!

Good morning Margaret. Sometimes it is best not to offer information unless it has a specific purpose. Enjoy your day!

I too believe and treat my customer's with the same trust and confidentiality as you do. Thanks for sharing I hope you have a great afternoon.

Wayne Martin But of course. They don't need to know what they don't need to know.

She may have been angry you didn't confide in her about her family member's business, but I bet she wouldn't have wanted it any other way had it been her business you were not sharing.

Sharon Tara She was angry but knowing this person so well, she would have lost my respect IF I had told  her.
