Timmothy N. Timm's cartoon today is an easy one to turn into a Real Estate message. As Realtors we need to remember we are not parents to our home buying clients. Telling them to just pick one is a really dumb way to treat a client. Maybe you have shown them 100 houses over the last three months and your patients are getting thin.
This is NOT the time to give up either. Another agent will be happy to pick them up and who knows, they just may buy the very next home they see.
I have read several testimonials on Active Rain where the client has mentioned the agents patience. I have also read many where they took a year or longer to purchase BUT they did purchase.
If you are a new Real Estate professional and you do not have patience you need to work on it or find another profession. If you got into this business with no savings to fall back on or any other source of income do not let your desperation become apparent to your client by pushing them to buy. I would recommend keeping your license but find another way to earn money until you can work comfortably as a Real Estate professional.
