Winners Minute - Communication

Mortgage and Lending with Progressive Mortgage


Your ability to communicate effectively has a big impact on every aspect of your life, but especially your effectiveness as a leader. J. Paul Getty once wrote, "There may be no single thing more important in our efforts to achieve meaningful work and fulfilling relationships than to learn to practice the art of communication

 keep your communication straightforward, honest and concise. He said, "When you communicate, let your yes be yes and your no be no."
My question of the day for you is, "Are the people around you clear about what you expect and what they can expect from you?"

Wow! You've hit the nail on the head with this one. I am always amazed at how bad things can get when there is poor communication or none! The great agents are great communicators!!!

Lee - It amazing to me how few very smart people understand what they can expect from their agent. I recently received some new clients who were so off base that I had to take it back to basics for them. I have tried to get everything down in writing - starting with the NAR Code of Ethics and taking it through to what specifically offer to my clients. It can be so overwhelming.

It made me realize that I often receive services from people who work in industries that I don't understand. We could do a much better job in informing consumers about the inner workings of real estate, but they may not be interested. Just like I don't REALLY know how travel agents or dentists are paid.
