DID YOU ASK? The Question, I Mean.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mike McCann - Broker, Farmland Broker-Auctioneer Serving Rural Nebraska

You thought they were going to use your STuck in the Snow Mike McCann Nebraska Farm Brokerservices but they didn't.

Has it happened more than once? Did it hurt when you found out?

Did You Ask? For their business, I mean. Before...recently...over and over...last month...last year...or Never?

I know dang well what the answer is...why not come clean and admit it?

How were they to know if you didn't ask?

In person...face to face...in advertising...at lunch or coffee...at the ballgame or church or the grocery store.

You did ask?  Did you answer all of their questions and then ask some more?

Did you get back with them quickly or fulfill all obligations to them or the person they referred?

So they didn't use you...Did You Ask them why?

Did you mention that the future will be here before you end your sentence and can you call them sometime in the future for their future business?

Did they use you before and you were sure they would use you again. It happens and they don't...and you are left wondering why...perhaps you and I know the answer.  Did you Ask?

Starting now...let's you and I resolve to continually ask ourselves...Did you Ask?

Note: (You = I, me, my, mine)                 Perhaps I should have Asked how deep the snowbank was?

Until Next Time...

You are right, we often forget to ask for the business, or ask why we didn't get it.

Recently I was in a group setting on FB where someone was complaining a past client hire another agent.  But that agent freely admitted to not asking for future business.

If we're not asking for business, we're usually not going to get it.

Good morning Mike. This is terrific. Asking for the cookie always makes a diiference. And if you don't get it, ask why not.

Very well said, Mike. We are often afraid to ask for the business and then wonder why we didn't get it. People are not mind readers and we may not be front of mind when they are ready to buyer or sell.

Important advice Mike, I think that we all have plenty of times when we have regretted not Asking.

Hi Jane Peters  My apologies for not responding to your comment on 1-20.  Not sure how I missed it. And yes...we are afraid sometimes to stop and ask.  I still have some issues with it and I know it!! So I keep working on it. Thank you for stopping by.
