Going the extra mile for your clients . . .

By
Home Stager with Great Impressions Home Staging/Interiors

The payback for doing "favors" for your clients is big, in my opinion. I love helping people and giving advice; yes, I suppose there are limits to how many times I will drive to a client's house because they want me to check on purchases they've made on their own for staging, or colors they picked out to paint with, or checking on landscaping changes they've done following my advice.  But so far I honestly haven't reached those limits because no one is taking advantage of me; they seem to be reasonable people who will either ASK me if they're taking advantage of my time, and if so, to please charge them for it (how great is that? But I don't) or they just ask for one extra favor, not many. 

I'm sure agents do LOTS of extra favors for their clients, but in the end, isn't that what not only makes us feel good, but gets us great word-of-mouth referrals?

 "Great Impressions Get Offers"

Presentation and price are critical to selling houses quickly. You and your agent figure out the best price; I make your home stand out from the competition to appeal to the most buyers, whether they are first-time buyers, move-up buyers, or down-sizing buyers. As an accredited, experienced staging professional, I know how to make your home grab buyers' attention -- on the MLS and in person. A beautifully presented house makes a great impression, stands out from the competition, and generates offers faster than a non-staged house!

Do the favors as long as they don't get too ridiculous.  If so, just be upfront with them about your do's and don'ts.

Yep, this is a basic, old-fashioned concept but one that is still crucial. I agree there ARE limits, and I just turned away a prospect this week who I could just TELL was going to be nickel-and-diming me for everything. First time I ever felt the need to do that, but they were also more than an hour away, so that was a good excuse :")

It is all about great customer service and I am sure your clients will remember you going the extra mile when they talk to their friends about your services.  At the end of the day you will get paid back with more business.
