One Down and One to Go.....

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It was a regular morning like any other except this morning I am supposed to have chronic no shows come and pick up items they said they wanted to buy. The first one actually came. The next one is due in a couple of hours. I am thinking he will come too, but no matter what, I am ahead of the day already. 

When I was a landlord years ago I leaned something. Be nice and gracious and understanding and people would want to live in my spaces. And so I am doing this with my antiques and collectibles online sales too. I am often stood up or have folks try and re-negotiate at the last minute but I try and stay focused, positive and nice and often find people have all kinds of things going on that don't have anything to do with me so being all of those things can sometimes result in the sale after all. One down and one to go.

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.

Hello Sheila - lessons learned in one part of life are definitely applicable elsewhere.  Good luck as the day continues...

Hi Sheila,
You are so right. We don't know what other people's story is so we should give them the benefit of the doubt. That said, I have a hard time with people who are no-shows. How hard is it to take a second to say they won't make it?  Nevertheless, people have all kinds of definitions of integrity. 

Happy Friday, Sheila!

Staying positive has as much impact on ourselves as it does others.  And, many times when we are angry, or frustrated, we are the only ones harmed.

Hi Sheila- We've done a lot of selling and buying on some of the sites and have learned that besides being cautious you have to grin it and bear it when someone doesn't show or is terribly late.

Morning Sheila.

It took me three years after leaving my former profession to calm down.  Things sure have changed for the better.
