Why Generation "Y" ?

By
Real Estate Agent with Maverick Realty

I just had to share a copy of this and pass it on, as it was in my email from a fellow collegue and I thought it explained the different generations by age group that we have to learn and know how to best sell to each generation.  Selling is different depending on the generation you are trying to sell to! 

 Apparently a caricaturist from Quebec City newspaper, Le Soleil,figured it out to a "T" or should I say to a"Y"-- read on and you figure out the "Y" at the end...LOL

It may make a little more sense now.....it will give you a good chuckle! (Sometimes you just have to let loose and laugh a little, and get those endorphins to kick in!)  I will be happy to sell to any generation looking for homes for sale in Owensboro,KY. 

 

 

In its January 22, 2008 edition, The Quebec City newspaper, Le Soleil, had a topic about Generations by age group.
 
 Generations are grouped as follows:
 
 - The Silent  generation, People born before 1945.  *
  
 - The Baby  Boomers,   People born between 1945 and 1961.
 
 - Generation  X, People born between 1962 and 1986.
 
 -  Generation Y, People born between 1987 and 2008.
  
 For the last one, one can ask why Y?...
  
 A caricaturist explains it eloquently below.............( I couldn't get the picture to work:(

I couldn't view the picture, but I do try to relate to each generation.  It is becoming more and more beneficial to understand people and where they come from, when it comes to selling.  Every good salesman needs to make a connection somehow with a potential client and understanding them is key to that.

Vickie,

I could not view the picture !! You left out the GI Joe generation or is the silent generation the same thing?
