...some when they're coming, others when they're going!

I saw this quote at a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Greer the other day and couldn't help but think of several of our clients...

Cancelled

We got fired the other day and can't tell you how so very excited we are!  In fact, it is happening more and more that we have taken to firing several clients or allowing ourselves to be fired.  It is such a great feeling to be out of a situation where despite all of our communication and marketing efforts (and we are pretty darn aggressive in that realm) the seller just doesn't get it that they have a part to play in the sale of their home, too.  Say, like, ummm, I dunno, maybe PRICING!  Or staging, or how about letting the house be shown. 

It takes way too much effort and energy to maintain a relationship with the wrong client.  We've learned that for every one whiny, obnoxious, pain-in-the-XXX  "unrealistic" client we keep, we could be servicing about 5 others who are motivated and agreeable to be around.  That's not to say that the market is easy and that everything is happy-go-lucky but we're ready to move on from those "energy suckers" and focus on people who don't make you want to pull your hair out. 

Morale of the story:  What type of person are you?

This is so funny. I have to share it with others. I agree with the moral of the story.

psst:  it's the Secret!  We attract who we are.  That's why I love ActiveRain and its positive feedback.  We have so many life challenges to juggle (ours and clients) that it helps to have positive peers who care and share so we can upgrade our profession.  By maintaining a healthy cheerful attitude, willing to listen, I am grateful that I have healthy, cheerful, willing to listen clients.  :)
