Win some -- lose some

Real Estate Agent with Innovative Realty Solutions Group BK3248318

Our profession is based on so  much emotion, its hard not to feel the disappointments when you dont get a listing or lose a buyer..

While we are the level headed ones in when we are " in the transaction" and able to be the calming waters for our customers,, our emotions tend to go crazy when someone chooses another agent or brokerage instead of us. Recently , was referred to a seller to list their home by a trusted friend, I put together a great presentation & listened what they wanted ,,,,,,, and felt very confident until they said they only wanted to do a 60 day listing. I explained that I needed a minimum of 6 months due to the price point and additional marketing I felt was needed. .............................They ultimately  found a Realtor who would.

I came into the interview confident and left the same way, my integrity in hand..

While I wouldve loved to add that listing to my inventory, I am truely content in knowing that I had that chance because someone else believed  in me!

So true Lesley Wilson-VanGoethem we cannot win them all.  However, sometimes I yield to the seller's request especially if I feel the item will move fast, it priced well, and shows well.  I take it on a case-by-case basis!

I'm sure they will find another agent after the frist 60 days, and then another and then another - good for you

Not taking the listing is often more important than getting it. Let someone else pay for the marketing and then pick it up when it doesn't sell in 60 days
