Taking your time

Real Estate Agent

This is pretty humble, basic advice but he or she in haste will waste.  Here's what I mean by this.  Lets say you have four deals going on in the same week.  You're signing a P@S with one client and the next one is blowing up your phone.  You have an appointment to show a listing in 45 minutes and you just don't know how you're going to satisfy everybody... Sound familiar?  Its a good thing.  Now back to the original client, you rush because you're in a hurry and what do you know, you forget to get your clients signature on the lead disclosure (or something to that effect).  You turn the contract in and sure enough, you get an email from your administrator, "hey dodo, you forget to get your client to sign the lead..."  So whats the collateral... You were way too busy before and now you have to set another appointment to re-sign the bottom corner of a form... Talk about wasting the precious little time you DON"T have to waste in the first place... So here's the moral, and I'm writing this one for my own personal therapy as well as hoping to help my fellow rainmakers, SLOW DOWN... ...  Take a breath, take your time and make sure you get it right the first time so you don't have to go back and redo it.

Matt, I agree with you.  It drives me crazy to have so much going on at one time (though I don't want to complain) that I can't keep up with it all.
