Lately, there have been some instances where buyers have queried me:
"What is YOUR favorite property?"
"If it were you, which one would YOU buy?"
It's fascinating to me that someone would lay such an important decision at my feet.
From an ego-related position, it would seem natural that because I'm the expert, they would throw it back at me to answer that all important question. But, each person is on their own journey so, does it really matter which one is my "favorite"?
As a REALTOR®, this could be a loaded question. When asked, I take a moment to pause. I want to give them an honest, authentic answer,not as a REALTOR®, but as a human, interested in their dreams and our newfound relationship. Our mutual welfare for their future, if you will.
The better way to answer this is with a question: What speaks to you?" "What does your gut tell you?"
It is not about me, ultimately. AT ALL. As Invictus said:
I am the master of my fate.
I am the captain of my soul.
This is not my journey but theirs. I am simply a vessel to get them there. God willing!
