Margaret Rome shares ideas that have made her business a shining beacon to those who follow her methods.
The Waiting List concept offers other benefits to the REALTOR(R) in terms of Client Relations in my mind. The Waiting List concept says to the Client that EACH Client is important and time is dedicated to EACH Client. The Waiting List concept says to the Client that his/her needs are important and will not be rushed by the REALTOR(R). Thanks Margaret for your usual good sense!
Have a happy day -
More About the Waiting List
There was a featured post by one of my favorite ActiveRain members, Martha Brown...The 'Waiting List'...Is This The Wave of the Future?
I remember one of the first times I told a buyer about my waiting list.
Being a listing agent kept me very busy so I explained that I just could not handle another client.
A few days later, he called asking for an appointment to BE interviewed. He wanted me to interview him so he could get on the list.
He said he was willing to wait for me.
I was blown away!... and told him he was at the top of my list and we made plans to find him the perfect home.
He was so sure he wanted to work with me. Turned out to be one of my favorite clients of all time.
Always be ready to walk away from a listing. Do business only with people you like and respect, even if you are struggling!
If you don't trust them going in, that's a pretty good indication the listing will cost you more in time, aggravation and money than you will make.
Don't think of it as turning down a listing; think of it as making room for a better client!
