Baby boomers. They have purchasing power. They are also making decisions for aging parents.

Great question. Each presents upsides and downsides.  Tech savvy which is a trademark of Millenials, is good and bad and not tech-friendly, as is the case with older retirees, is also good and bad.  I should probably run for political office with that answer, lol.

You may want only one, but I can't give that. I like the ones that we get to the closing table!

Khash Saghafi as I was reading your response I thought, is this guy a politician?

There are elements about each generation that is different. Which would fit your comfort level the best?

I will work with all generations. I prefer to work with all individuals regardless of their age.  You have to take into account each person knows another person who may benefit from your services.

Will, I really think it is about knowing who you are and finding the fit that you are most comfortable with.

Thanks for commenting.

John, as long as they are sane, can make decisions, really don't care what age they are.

Sybil Campbell I think not all people can be effective with all generations.

Some are put off by too much tech and some are put off by too little tech.

It seems you are pretty comfortable and adaptable.

Thanks

My millennial boys have sent me a ton of young folks and I SO enjoy working with them. I also work with clients who are moving up and I love working with them. Seniors - oh, boy! They are awesome to work with too...I just could never choose, John! I love them all and for different reasons!!

John, have to say my first time buyers have continued to feed my business.  Everyone they work around has decided they want to buy.

Joan Cox it is interesting how a certain group will relate well with the agent and will be a continuing source of business.

Thanks for sharing.

I work with people  who I like and respect and who need to sell. The variety of clients make it very interesting. I may be working with a senior to sell and buy and their son or daughter may also need to buy or sell and their grandchildren may need to buy!

  Referrals bring in a mixture of clients and good clients usually refer good clients.
