Have you ever had one of those days when something wasn't quite right but you couldn't put your finger on it? It isn't like anything is going wrong, something just doesn't feel right.
Well, I remember one of those days as I was preparing to meet a client. I drove to their home in Orangecrest a subdivision in Riverside Ca. As I am walking to their door I get that something isnt right feeling. I ring the doorbell while going through a mental checklist . (1) Presentation Materials - Check - (2) Listing Agreement - Check - (3) Business attire - Check - (4) Barefeet - Check - (5) On time - check- (6) Camera - Check - BARE-FEET !!!! No Not Bare-feet !! SOAKING BARE-FEET with Grass-blades stuck to them !
What was I going to do?? I already rang the bell. here they come...
"Hello Oh, What a beautiful Home You Have" I'll say
"Thank you" My client will say "please come in. Do you hear a splish-splash? "They'll say
"No 'I'll reply, "What is that interesting art piece UP THERE on that shelf?"
No good, I need a different plan.
"Hello, I am Windy of Barefoot Realtors of Riverside. You know our slogan "If we can walk barefoot in it we can sell it, because it is not just a house it's a home that's comfortable lived in feeling...
No, I need a different plan.
DING DONG DITCH'EM Yeah that's it!
And That is exactly what I did.
I ran to my car............. jumped in........................ drove away before they answered the door..........As soon as I rounded the corner I grabbed my cell called my clients......... explained something unexpected arose and I would be a few minutes late.
Well, let me tell you ever since that day I have had a new preperation list and at the top SHOES !!
