Lucky Flat Tire Becomes Million Dollar Sales !

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

. The fall and winter have always been busy times in our real estate practice and this one is exactly that sales pattern.  We jumped in the car and made a few stops on our way to get our next listing ready for the market...David looked at the dashboard and the car's cnail in tireomputer indicated that the left front tire was losing pressure. We immediately pulled into a parking lot...and looked for the cause...nasty nail picked up somewhere...and the pressure was going to continue to drop.  We drove back a few blocks and happened upon an auto repair shop....the Gods were smiling...a rare find these days ! The mechanic/owner was hard at work on another car and greeted us immediately....Ah yes, he determined the tire could be plugged...and he set about to do just that...stopping work on his other job so we could get back on the road to our next appointment.

     The service was prompt and appreciated, the Mechanic calculated the Bill...the conversation turned to real estate..."Thank you so much for the excellent service,,,if you are ever in need of real estate service, please give us a call." Yes he WAS indeed in need of exactly that !  He was going to buy a house...Sell a house and a Buy a commercial property ! He quickly admitted that real estate was not his forte and welcomed our help.  David quickly discussed some of the aspects of a commercial sale EXP for sale signwhile I took down the address of the soon to be listed property. 

   Today, on our way back to our soon to be listed property, we will bring him our introduction folder with our credentials and testimonials...and a blind market analysis of the property he wishes to list.

   The Moral to the Story is...always let everyone, everywhere know what you do...have business cards with you at all times....and don't leave your smile and positive attitude in your pocket !

     This has been a professional service marketing post  brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with EXP Realty honored to be of service for all things real estate in Southeastern Wisconsin.

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson,

Great advice and testimony that being nice to everyone with a positive attitude can bring you riches you hadn't thought possible. Its just who you are, nothing fake (people can spot a fake a mile away), you generally want to be of service and have a good heart.

Sally and David unfortunately to many Agents are "Secret Agents" and pass up several opportunities as a result of it.

Sally & David I gave up being a Secret Agent and have become a Real Estate Agent about 24 years ago and  everyone knows that I am in the Real Estate Business... when I get a call "are you still in real estate?" I know that is a sales call, Endre
