The Waiting is the Hardest Part

Real Estate Agent with ERA Nalbandian 0791061

"The Waiting IS The Hardest Part" ... is such a classic line or lyric if you will. I am referring to the great Tom Petty's song "The Waiting". Now that song may be more geared to something to do with a love story but it's just that line I care about here  ... The Waiting Is The Hardest Part .... because well; isn't it? Waiting is hard in reference to anything. I know, I know that "patience is golden" but patience doesn't always have to do with Waiting...does it ?  It depends on what you are waiting for.  If you are on line at the grocery store waiting for the cashier to get to you next, that may take patience. How about in our business of Real Estate though?? In Real Estate we are so often waiting for answers, replies, notices, contracts, emails, fax, news, clients, homeowners, checks, payments and / or well;  eachother!

You definately have to have patience in this business.  The waiting for agent return calls is hardest for me because I normally reply quickly and others dont always.

Hardest part for a High D persoanality like  mine is to wait. It takes alot of practice. The fact that my partner is also a High D doesnt help. We both want it yesterday!

Waiting is waiting and it does involve patience I guess. Another deal going would make waiting mroe fun.

Isn't the song great though?
