A conversation occurs between a hard working Realtor and an excited Client. The discussion covers preparations for a Friday closing... and then this gem emerges:
Client: "Ok, so our partnership ends Friday."
Realtor: "No. You and I will be partners forever! What's our next move?"
Client: "Nope, I'm breaking up with you Friday. I will send tissues."
Ahhhhh, the joys of real estate sales. I've learned that you've got to take the time to appreciate the humor, diverse personalities, and joys that we encounter almost daily. This semi-sarcastic and wholly awesome buyer does not realize that you can't dump a good Realtor. We might not talk for days, weeks, or months... but we'll be there. And when you need us, we'll be ready to help and pick it up wherever we left off.
Not to mention: Any client that prematurely dumps their Realtor before a house warming party is making a major faux pas. We don't stay long and generally bring stuff you like. :-)
