The Name Game--thoughts from A/R's Ann Buchanan

By
Real Estate Agent with Today | Sotheby's International Realty CA BRE# 01215160

This morning I read a post written by one of the newer members of Active Rain, Ann Buchanan, titled, "The Name Game."

She makes a very valid point - calling people by name creates instant rapport and makes people feel good. Head on over to the post, "The Name Game" written by Ann Buchanan to say "hi," welcome her to Active Rain, and read her thoughts on the subject.

Shirley Ellis also knew the importance of names!

Lottie absolutely remembering peoples names and using them is important.  I'll buzz over right now - thanks for introducing her!

I have Caller ID on my phone so I am constantly reminded of the name of the person I'm talking to; I also write it down so if I am looking at something else on my cellphone, I can remember it during our chat. I use the caller's name over and over. People love to hear their names. It makes the conversation more intimate.

Lottie,

 I too think if you call someone by their name you build rapport...with them you can't sell them a home without some kind of rapport!
