As adult HUMAN beings we are seldom as vocal as the dog in this three strip cartoon (this is strip 2 of 3). If you wish to see 1 of three it is the post Go Home.
The Real Estate application I'm going with is: Are you to busy sleeping to jump when your client says jump!
Most experienced agents no longer jump every time we hear Jump as we have established our business and our clients know that we have boundaries that we will not cross unless we truly see the urgency to jump. Some clients are like puppies needing a lot of attention. Those clients are ones the experienced agents usually pass on to an associate who needs to cut their teeth on the bone of experience.
If you are a new agent I suggest you do jump until you have trained your clients that you too have a life and you are developing your boundaries. All of us have been puppies and all of us have trained puppies... just learn to do it with love and compassion.
The cartoon above is number two in a series of three. I think it's a good/funny series so I may continue it later or tomorrow depending upon your reaction.
