One hand helps the other

Real Estate Agent with Lloyd & Day Real Estate
The longer I am in this business the more I realize how important relationships with others can be.  There are relationships you build with fellow Realtors, with local builders and carpenters, buyers, sellers, local cleaning people, neighbors, family - the list goes on and on.  Through these relationships you are likely to get referrals to buyers, sellers, or any number of services.  This can all be called reciprocity.  In other words "what goes around comes around".  The next time you have the opportunity to help someone or answer someone's question, be as thorough as possible, give them extra information to back up your experience.  Eventually, they will come back to you because they remember how helpful you were when they needed assistance.

You are so right Mom. Being what you would like others to be makes the world a better place to live.

Lois, I wholeheartedly agree. but I think it's "one hand washes the other" :-) you know that means I'm kidding right? btw, I have a lot of friends and family who speak broken english or heavy accents and they are constantly mis-phrasing quotes. so I always find it humorous.

I agree Lois.  Treat others as you would expect to be treated!
