The Power of Negotiation!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sellstate Advantage Realty

Just a little story someone sent to me today! One of the areas of our business that we need to be very proficient at is the art of NEGOTIATION!  Without good negotiating skills we will never advance to the top of our business! Here is a quick lesson for today!

Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat, because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place.   Looking up to heaven he said, 'Lord take pity on me.   If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!'

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.
Paddy looked up again and said, 'Never mind, I found one.'

 You Gotta Love the Irish!

Have a great day!

Mike,  That is too funny.  It is also true. LOL  I can just picture a certain person saying exactly that.

Very funny and very typical.  Don't we all do that on some level?  Thanks for reminding us about the importance of negotiation.  Nice post!

Very true! Most people do find an excuse to not give a little or back out of a deal if something better comes along; even when you've already given your word. That is a pet peeve of mine.
