The $12 name tag that you should wear can lead to opportunity! Do you wear yours?? I wear mine and have gotten business from it! If you do not have one, order one today!
... I hear so many of you right now !
"I wouldnt be caught DEAD wearing my REALTOR NAME TAG !!!!!"
OK ! No problem from me ! If it's not your thing, then I'd never rib you for NOT wearing your badge, but I OFTEN get people snickering at me because I wear mine ALMOST EVERYWHERE ! ... especially during my workday ! (... I would not wear it to my sons soccer match for example, but to drop him at school ? ... sometimes ;o) lol !!!)
Anyway, I'm so excited I can hardly speak type ... hold on, let me catch my breath !!!!
I stopped by last night to put a lockbox on a brand new CO-OP listing of mine in a Luxury High Rise in my region, AND I WAS WEARING MY NAME TAG !
In the elevator, a sweet older lady 'looked at my badge' ... (as everyone does if you are wearing it, whether you are in the post office, grocery store or bus stop or wherever !).
She immediately said "Oh you're a Realtor? are you showing a unit here?"
I told her I was actually just about to list a new 1 bedroom unit in the building, when she replied:
..."Oh a 1 bedroom ! I am looking for a 1 bedroom ! I live on the 19th floor in a 3 bedroom unit which I want to downsize from and get a 1 bedroom. I love this building so do you mind if I take a look at the one you are about to list ??"
Do I mind !?!?!?! Well heck of course not !!!! Come right in !!!!!!
To cut a long story short - she LOVED the 1 bedroom I'm just about to list, AND HERE'S THE CHERRY ON TOP ...
SHE WANTS ME TO IMMEDIATELY LIST HER 3 BEDROOM UNIT IN THE SAME BUILDING !!!!
She he wants me to sell that one, and buy the 1 bedroom I'm about to list !
THINGS ARE JUST NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN THIS WAY !!!
... unless of course you are wearing your MAGIC NAME TAG !!!!!!
.... if you are, then anything is possible
Go ahead and chuckle at my name tag ! ... I'll smile right back atcha while I'm signing my new listing, and likely getting two new sales from wearing it !!!
