What is your business style? Mine consists of Integrity, Patience and Solid but Fair Advice to my clients!

www.endrebarath.com

As a  Beverly Hills Realtor I find, that I am often faced with challenges and I have always taken the issues on with integrity, patience and fairness or better stated with kindness that benefits the clients.

There are other professionals in different business that do the same, while others do  not. What category do you fall into?

Just to let you know, this post was inspired by events that took place today. A few days ago, I noticed that the “oil change” notice came on my Lexus RX 350. Now with that said I said, “note to self I need to call my trusted mechanic” Next day, I started hearing some unusual noise from the engine when accelerating. Clearly, this sound did not sound or feel good and I said to Diane “ this noise sounded expensive”.

When I saw my mechanic, I said to John, the priority is  to find out what the noise is, followed by the oil change and last the windshield wiper replacement. Just to be clear, he was expecting a simple oil change. 

Well a couple hours later, he is calling me and telling me that it is “the Water Pump” and since the car has less than 30,000 miles on it and is less than five years old the odds are  very likely that it is under a warranty plan. Instead of him spending 8-10 hours labor and potentially charging me $1500-$1800 I should go to the Dealership.

This just reconfirmed to me why I go to Grimmetts and why John is my choice of mechanic for our cars. He chose Integrity over making a few dollars.  If you are in Los Angeles and are looking for a trustworthy, honest mechanic reach out to John at   Baizer & Grimmet Automotive Repair, 11717 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025.

This interaction reminded me  that when I sell land, I sound like I am trying to talk a buyer out of purchasing the land. I am giving them sound advice. Some appreciate it and they end up being clients for life. Some end up buying a House or a Condominium with me representing them. Others just take it for granted and move on. Back to my point due to good advice like this, is why John at Grimmetts is our mechanic for life.

He patiently told me, that if for some reason, the Lexus Dealership does not stand by their warranty and will want me to pay for it, then please do not do the repair there, but bring it back  to him and he will do it for less than what Lexus would charge.

This is what I call patience, he might get the business, or he might not, but the focus was on making sure the client’s interest came first. In this instance my financial interest was his priority. That is the reason we have been customers of John for the past 20+ years.

Now with that said, after the oil change, I was heading to Beverly Hills to the Dealership. The post is to be continued...

Endre, those qualities will hold you (or any business owner) in good stead. Hold firmly to your fiduciary, be patient and understanding. It will come back to you. I have been working with a developer for two years now. I started with him before the earth was even disturbed. He now has the first phase built and we have units under deposit. Yes we need patience in this business.

Endre I am sure that John's honesty will gain him far more business from you than he would have made by taking advantage of the situation.

Endre, you have nailed it. It is always best to be honest with clients. It is too hard to remember all the ways you have been deceptive,  it is just easier to be honest.
