There Goes My Balloon

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 SAL.2002007747

floating awayOne of my earliest memories is going to the Detroit Zoo with my parents, and they bought me a red balloon.  You know young kids and balloons, that's a happy combination.  I hung onto that balloon and when we got back home I tied that balloon to my tricycle handle bar.

Well actually I TRIED to tie that ballon to the handlebar, but my knot tying skills weren't on point yet, and that string rapidly unwrapped and away that balloon floated up into the sky and over the townhomes, never to be seen by me again.  That WASN'T a good feeling...

Well it's 50+ years later and I still like balloons.  Well not exactly balloons, but that similar feeling you get when you have the prospect of a new client.  As you have that initial conversation you're calculating the odds of whether this is a legit opportunity or someone just picking your brain.  You assess it as legit and you get that warm feeling at the prospect of helping someone buy or sell a home.  You've got your balloon on a string and you're ready to tie it on your handlebar.

You've got a great feeling from that 2 hour buyer consult where you were confident that you'd nailed down the right community and floor plans for the buyers' needs.  You've got them set up to see the builder's rep, things are looking good. 

And then the string comes off the handlebar. 

They've decided to go another direction, and they don't want an agent to help.

And away floats the balloon....

But there in my inbox, three new registrations from our IDX pages.

Hope returns.

Maybe one of them wants a ride on my tricycle??  :)

Excellent balloon analogy! Yes, sometimes those balloons float out of sight, and sometimes we get to keep them for quite a while.
