Righting a Wrong

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

No one likes to make mistake, but heck, we're all human and it happens. Whether it is a personal or a professional error no good ever comes from unresolved mistakes. Some folks just let it go but my view is, if you make a mistake, screw up or hurt someones feelings the right thing to do is simply apologize and move on. I know that's what I do because that is what I like to happen when I am given bad information or hurt by something or someone.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

HI Sheila- This is one of those things that we were all taught when we were young children!  And, when we do it, it makes us feel better.

You have a fantastic outlook on this Sheila. If ever I hurt someone apologizing is the first thing to do and then try to make it right...if possible. If not, then just move on quickly.

Morning Sheila.

In the past if you wronged me sooner or later it came back to haunt you.  Now, it just rolls off my back in most cases

The sooner the apology is made and righted, the quicker the forgiveness and "healing". The relationship is also made a little stronger and respected a little more.

I HATE making mistakes and I'm very willing to confess when it happens. I admit that having understanding does my ego more good than the lack thereof.

I agree!  I have apologized to clients before, over some oversight or perhaps misunderstood communication.  Some people think NOTHING is ever their fault--ugh.

Hi Sheila:

That's certainly the right approach and I think most people will understand and be forgiving, and be glad you fessed up. It's far worse to not take ownership! THAT'S likely to get remembered!

Sheila you just showed me how powerful a very short and to the point blog can be.     I tend not to write until I've got 500 - 1000 words to say.    You may have just changed my approach!
