GIRL, YOU'RE GOOD!

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Florida WCI Realty

I'm working with a realtor that knows her client!  My  first experience with her was when she met me to show the luxury apartment.  She told her buyer to arrive at 9:45.  She knew they'd be late.  We coudn't get into the unit until  10.  They were right on time 10 AM, but actually late, .since they were supposed to be there at 9:45.

She knew they'd offer low (the unit was on the market just  24 hours) so she told them it was full price only, 'as is' and they could take it or leave it.   I'm loving this girl.

Buyer didn't complete the association application timely, so she told him I had a  cash back up offer  & if he missed any dates in the contract, he would be out of contract and that cash buyer would be "in like Flynn" and there's nothing anyone could do.  All true, but "You Go Girl".

She knew her buyer would be late, low ball the offer, & neglect everything and blame her if we didn't make the closing happen.  The buyer had already asked me to get his decorator into the unit and when we couldn't coordinate a time, he wanted the key "because after all, he owned that apartment".  Sorry, bud, you don't own it until you take title.  Security wouldn't loet him in even if he had a key.

IT'S ALL ABOUT KNOWING YOUR CLIENT!

HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR CLIENT?

Okay - I hope the buyer doesn't read this and question the agent.
