Really? You Don’t Have a Computer???
Remember back in the days before all of our clients had computers? We spent so much time in the car driving around to obtain signatures for one piece of paper after another.
I guess I have been spoiled lately, because all of my clients have had computers and have actually been fairly computer literate, with the exception of ONE.
I am working with a lady right now who is in her early 50’s. She has never had a job that required that she use a computer and has no idea how to even turn one on. No Problem!
It takes me back to the old days when I first started in real estate in the mid-nineties. Electronic signatures weren’t even a thought back then. Properties were posted in the MLS book that came out once a week and we lined up to grab our copy. And boy did we burn through the gasoline back then.
The up side of this situation is that I get lots of face time with this client and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with her. I feel like we have become friends just because she sees me non-stop, as opposed to my other clients who do everything electronically.
Maybe the real estate Gods sent this client to me to remind me of the importance of face to face communication with clients. It has certainly given me a new perspective. I will cherish the moments I have with this client and try to make this experience a learning experience and a slight slap in the face to never forget to get in front of clients in the future.
