You might say in the real estate field your fifteen minutes of fame the clock starts ticking with that first face to face introduction with the client. First impressions, good or bad, are especially hard to change. Did you show up with your hair all wind blown? Scruffy clothes from a long day? Makeup messed up for the ladies?

So what say you? Are you famous now? Been famous? Still waiting for the proverbial ship of yours to come in??
