Patience pays!

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Realty Specialists Inc.

Here's a good feeling story I thought I would share.  2.5 years ago, a lady came in to one of my Mississaugaopen house I was hosting.  We started talking, she saw the house, she filled in the guest registry and she left.  The following week I followed up with her.  Obviously she was not going to buy the house I had but I con't the conversation and arranged for an appointment!

I reviewed the house, discussed my market analysis and after I was done, she informed me that she was not ready at this point. No Problem!  Icon't following up with her for several weeks and then heard no more.

Low and behold...she called me the other day to ask me if I was still interested in speaking with her - OF COURSE I am!!!  I met with her and her daughter, reviewed the house, the market and my presentation.  I found out that she had spoken to 5 other agents......I got the listing!

Wow! you never know when things are going to happen and you should never burn your bridges.  I try to treat everyone equally, no judgments, deal with everyone's situation and acknowledge that everyone is in a unique position.  She told me that some of the other agents tried pressuring her into the listing and one even went as far as having an argument with her.

Anyhow, I'm not bragging but I feel great that she called me back.

Just sharing.
