Do you always have some of your business cards on your person? I have to admit that I frequently run into a store around Shell Knob, clutching only my debit card and shopping list. This was not the case earlier this week and I was extremely glad I had mine with me. We need to be aware that eyes and ears of potential clients are always around us.
I had to retake the Realtor Ethics Class at the board's office in Branson, MO this week, as I had changed brokers and this class is required to join Tri- Lakes Board. Many participants of the class converged on an adjacent BarBQ place for lunch. Three of us shared a table and of course talked business as we consumed some excellent food.
We were nearly done when a couple approached our table. Apologized for overhearing our conversation, but said they were visiting Branson from Wisconsin and were interested in investing into some waterfront property. They asked for our cards, but I was the only one with business cards available!
I spoke with them briefly about some waterfront lots I had listed. I fully expect to
hear from them, but what if I hadn't had my cards on me?
Have you had any unexpected requests for your cards? Share the incident with me.
