I'm currently at the office doing floor time and taking calls. I'm hopeful to get a lead. So hopeful. Instead I get a call about a vacant house and whether or not it's still available. I tell him yes and he says he's interested in seeing the house "right now!" I explain a few things and I'm sure you all know what they are. I offered him some options and ways I could help him. Throughout the conversation he gets more and more agitated. He literally wants me to stop what I'm doing, not knowing a thing about him, and drive 20 minutes to an abandoned house. By the way, he doesn't need a pre-approval because he's using cash. Okay, I may be new but I'm not stupid. He says he's frustrated about agents and forms and this and that. I try to tell him that it's good business practice to do things a certain way but he didn't care and he ended up hanging up on me.
Being new, I have this idea that I should grab up anything and everything I can get my hands. I need to rethink that and consider, like I mentioned above, good business practice. Safety is a huge issue and should be at the forefront of any agent's mind and considered good business practice. No lead and no amount of money should ever be more important than sticking to safe practices. Also, intuition and instincts are real and should be utilized to the fullest extent.
