Musings of a Career Consultant

SoCal Texan in Bmore Leading Rock Stars

“Bad, bad,” says the buyer but when he goes away, then he boasts -Proverbs 20:14 August 2, 2012

Every morning I get emailed Bible verses (not pushing my religion, just saying) and this one came through a couple of days ago. I couldn’t help seeing how it was such a reminder of how hard our Clients can be on us even when they know they’re getting the very best from us and/or the market.

See, we don’t make the market or the conditions, we just interpret the market and navigate the conditions. When it’s presented to your Clients like that at the beginning of every relationship, they’re expectations are in line with what you can actually do for them. I would most preferably have this conversation when I do a Listing Appointment or a Buyer’s Consultation (which is when I get the Buyer Broker signed – and get one of those suckers Every. Single. Time.).

Do ya’ll preface ya’ll’s relationships like this? Or are you letting your Clients scream “BAD” in your face?

 

Rancho Agents Love Their Dads June 18, 2012

How do I know? Because every day when I log into the Multiple Listing Service, I’m updated with all kinds of great New Listings, Price Changes, Closings, etc. and this morning there was hardly anything. This leads me to believe that Rancho Agents spent the last 24 hours with their families, as they should.

So what did happen yesterday all over Rancho yesterday?

  • 0 – # of New Listings, Back-up Offers, Expireds
  • 1 – # of Price Changes, Closed Escrows
  • 2 – # of Back on Market, Pending
