Favorite Clients Defined

Each Sunday morning, Jasen Edwards sends out an email along with a video.

And this was another thought-provoking Sunday morning read.

This week he was asking his coaching students to describe favorite clients along with a worksheet, which I skipped.

 

my favorite 

 

 

Thinking back, my favorite clients have not been easy peasy.  They were not the ones that bought and sold immediately. But they were usually exciting and fun to be around. 

 

My favorite and memorable clients ...

  They’ve been the ones with challenging needs. They took extremely more time to find a home or to sell their property.  There are a few buyers who have searched for a couple of years, yes years to find the right home.  And there have been sellers that have taken that long to find the right buyer. Thank goodness, not too many.

 

But the entire time, I felt their appreciation, their respect for my time, and their assurance that I was truly working in their best interest.

My buyers and sellers are the best

 

Instead of describing that perfect client, I made an exclusive list of favorite clients over the years...many who are now friends. Too many to choose just one or two. When you hear me describing properties and buyers, they are the folks I'm talking about being my favorites.

  I’m going to be reaching out, calling them, and sharing how and why they are my favorites. For those reading or listening to my radio show, don't be surprised if I call you.

 

Once again, Jasen, Thanks for your inspiration! 

 

Make it an excellent December!

 

Margaret Rome

I would agree, the easiest clients are not always the most interesting, when I am pushed to learn something new, because of a situation that has arisen, that transaction often becomes memorable, and those clients are often the most appreciative as they see what you have dealt with and how you handled it.

Good evening Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - I am glad you clarified challenging. Not the clients but the work.  I am sure it was enjoyable and added to your experience.

Grant Schneider IF the clients had been challenging or toxic they would not have lasted too long. Challenging situations and properties etc...now that's what I enjoy.

Good morning Margaret. Challenging needs call for the creative and informed mind to find the solution. You say, "challenge accepted"! Good for you as you add to your list of friends.

Hi Margaret,
It's so true. It's nice to have those easy ones but it isn't necessarily the easy ones who are the most fun or rewarding.

I've definitely had my favorites over the years.  And, some of those folks I am still friends with to this day.  That includes, one 21 year old superkid, who bought a duplex from me in 1981, and went on to move up, and ultimately, buy a lot which he built a million+ dollar home on.  It's hard to believe but he is a grandfather now!

Myrl Jeffcoat That 21-year-old, now grandfather, probably has friends and family that you have also helped over the past years.  Love these long term, client-turned friends, relationships!

Your thoughts mirror mine. Many of our favorites are now good friends. Funny how that works. And agree, they weren't the easiest to work with...

Jasen Edwards You are a great way to start my early Sunday mornings! Sorry about skipping your worksheet but you inspired me to make a list.

Now I'm calling all my favorites.

And Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR and you were in the same office.
