Lesson learned

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

I was listening to an old program the other day and something caught my ear. It is a lesson over 80% of agents never learn. It is a lesson that can cost you your career. It is a lesson that when I learned it made me rise to the top. It gave me peace of mind.  It allowed me to relax. It allowed me to reduce stress tremendously. What caught my ear?

“When you cultivate, you no longer have to tolerate.”

 

If you invest the time that it takes to find motivated buyers and sellers instead of just hoping that they happen to fall into your lap, then you don’t have to put up with unreasonable clients. And if a transaction goes sideways, you don’t have to lose sleep over the fact that someone was deceitful.

 

Learn that lesson, and you may feel like this:

Rocky, that is so true, and if you have enough business, you can choose not to work with those that are unreasonable.

Rocky in this business we have to look for the business, we are not order takers, we are sales people.

The phrase I recall  is not being a pop-up agent that responds to any call without proper screening

Hey there Joan Cox and if there is one thing as good as getting great business, it is turning down unreasonable business.

Hey there George Souto I think it was Mike Ferry that once told me, "If everyone said yes, they would pay us like Wal  Mart greeters" We are not order takers, in fact we get paid for our "no"s

Hey there Sheri Sperry - MCNE® yes the meme is from a movie called "They Live" which when you watch it today, kind of takes on a whole new meaning

Hi Rocky- I think that this is one of the biggest mistakes that new agents make...they don't know how to say "no."  And the next is that you have to prospect constantly.

I learned a long time ago to prospect even when my business is in the zone. I've only had a handful of people steal my business over the years and that's left a very bad taste in my mouth Rocky Dickerson

Good morning Kathy Streib yes, there is nothing like the nighmare of only having 1 transaction and it falls out in the last few days.

Good morning Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS I imagine that would leave a very bad taste indeed
