This week's Wasaga Beach Open House that we hosted on Sunday was quite slow; I guess everyone was at the beach...
We only had couple of visitors and as usual, we asked them to fill out the information form (OREA Form 270). Usually people have no problem with that, but this time one of the visitors agresivly refused to comply with our request.
Not only she said she would not provide her information, she was quite rude!...
From the perspective of couple of days I try to put myself in her shoes. In her mind I'm yet another person trying to get her personal information. We are all tired of that, and try to avoid situations like this one.
On the other hand...
My Client, Mr. Seller has the right to know who is snooping around his house. In fact many Sellers request that this information is provided to them following an Open House.
We all know that there are those who go to Open Houses to get decorating idea, those who are just a bit nosy and simply want to know what their neighbours have in the garage, basement or the kitchen.
It's all fine, we never know where Mr. or Mrs. Buyer will come from, and perhaps the Neighbour will love the house so much, they will talk about it and advertise it for us.
Then are those bona-fide Buyers, looking for the home of their dreams. Usually those people have no problems leaving their names and numbers. I love you Guys! You make my job alot easier!
I guess the Mrs. Rude was one of those Lookers, or perhaps she was just stubborn... But between you and me, there is no need for rudeness; after all I'm just doing my job... on a wonderful Sunday afternoon...
When I thought about it, I decided that after an experience like this, I am now ready to tell someone like her to leave if she is not willing to share her name and number with me...
