I'm just all tickled pink this morning because I won a Sacramento listing presentation yesterday. For the most part, sellers usually just call me and tell me they want me to come over and list their home. I don't often have to compete with other agents. But it's good to compete. It's fun. And it's a humbling as well as consistently learning experience for me -- regardless of the fact that I've been in this business almost 40 years now. I can't believe that a listing presentation is still such fun.
I don't stress out over them. I figure I'll just go over and do the best job I can at explaining what I do and why I do it, and what I will do for the seller. Sometimes, sellers have already decided to hire a family member and they call other agents to interview because somebody told them that's what they should do. When I get a sense that's what's going on, I just excuse myself and leave, but that doesn't happen very often, thank goodness.
