Hey again everyone, this blog is slightly different from my typical blogging, however it has a good point. If any of you are repeats readers on my blogs you will know I get almost all of my ideas from reading articles online such as cnn.com, wral.com(our local station) and business journals.
Anyway, basically I was reading again today and came across something very interesting. It was a "Not quite perfect Mcdonalds" in IL. It was a very amusing thing to read and imagine. They actually sell basically the "deformed" food from McDonald's warehouse. They have green fries, footlong fries, orange drink that's all syrup, M shaped patties. It's horrible to imagine. I personally like McDonalds, however that just ruins my appetite for McDonalds! One lady made a remark she would never take her kids there again because they opened their happy meals and found headless toys and it scared her little ones!
But, you are saying by now, How does this relate to real estate? It reminds me of the Real Estate Professionals that halfway do things for their clients. Take the listing and charge a cheaper rate but you put it on the MLS and a sign in the yard and do nothing but sit and wait........and wait.......and wait.....then all of sudden the listing is going to expire and it's time to hussle. It's not suppose to work that way but it's a good connection if you really think of it. It's one thing if that's what the seller wants and they know they are getting nothing but the home listed online, but it's another to tell the seller you're going to "sell" their home and not do anything to sell it, no marketing, no open houses, no follow ups, absolutely nothing. I am a big believer of personalized customer service and truly making the client feel they are the only one.
I just found the article amusing and how it shows how people try to save a little money and how people tend to halfway do their jobs or run their business. I'd like to know would you eat at the "Not quite perfect McDonalds"?
