I don't know how I'm going to tie in that headline, yet. I was watching Good Morning America and they had Samin Nostra on (star of Salt, Fat, Acid & Heat)... and I bastardized the headline. Now I need to back it up with content. Usually I work the other way around: I write the post, and then I pull a headline out of the content. Let's see how this works out.
I've been working with a buyer for the past few months, and he's very nice to work with... he's decisive, knows what he's looking for and takes his time when looking at properties. He's a first-time buyer, so he asks a lot of questions, and they're usually good ones... and even better he values my opinion and responses.
We've even gotten way off track, and he asks my opinion about food, traffic, dating.. (salty?)... and he seems to value my opinions. I mean "what the heck do I know about dating?"
Recently he asked me an involved real estate question.. it was a fairly fleshy question, and required a thoughtful (fatty?) response. So I gave him a multi-faceted answer... (heat?) based on my many years in the business.
He didn't respond the way I expected, and he re-phrased the question. I gave basically the same answer, slightly re-worded. He wasn't having it. So I asked him what the problem was. He told me that he'd read something online that disagreed with my answer. I explained again, and he still wasn't having it... in fact he seemed rather irked that I wasn't agreeing with the website.
He grew quiet and withdrawn... I got the sense he didn't like my answer, and I hadn't passed his 'test'. I tried to explain further, but in his mind he had moved-on. And that was enough. Apparently I had smack-talked his website, and that was the last time I saw him, or heard from him. He no longer answers my emails, texts or voice mails.
