In an industry that is filled with breakdowns in communication and agendas that often leave someone holding the short end of the stick, I'm happy to say that I have had clients tell me on numerous occasions that they appreciate my honesty. On every listing presentation, I always try to give clients my Honest opinion of what I think there home is worth and how I came to this conclusion. I usually get the I think it's worth way more response, but in the end it's the market that's going to be the true predictor of the price of a home. This has been a very successful approach for me. I know some Realtors will tell a client what ever they want to hear for a contract, but I think that just leads to problems down the road. Furthermore, people already have horrible preconceived notions about Realtors, and I don't want to be fuel to that fire.
