Can YOU see around corners? 👀

Can YOU see around corners? 👀

 

Setting client expectations up front while establishing the relationship early on, with realistic goals, usually intends the tone for achieving them with less chance of someone going off on a wild tangent when unmet. Usually, but not always!

 

Well-matched personalities allow everyone to work together because all parties understand that tremendous effort goes into the process of getting a home sold or finding a dream home for ready, excited buyers. Professionals tend to make it look easy because they enjoy the work and possess high business standards.

 

90% of all disappointments

are due to unrealistic expectations.

 

Then, there is the other side when sales goals are not met in a timely manner. Events outside the scope of control, can occur, like, a water main bursts or a lien is found on record and the property doesn't sell immediately or the buyers missed out on their dream home because they insisted on 'sleeping on it'. 

 

When consumers have unreasonable expectations, they might think you should be able to look around corners, they will also demand that you leap tall buildings in a single bound. You may be expected to deliver the moon without any prior notice at all!

 

Chasing perfection puts you

further behind happiness. -Davd Lewiskyle

 

Instead of saying, in the end, "I didn't see that coming", meet the challenges, practice effective communication and stay out of your own way, because honestly, when that happens, nothing good comes from it.

 

Besides, if they're unable to see around corners, you should not be expected to either!

Potential buyers and sellers deserve to know upfront, what an agent can do for them and also to what to expect during the process. It is pretty simple, Leanne Smith!

Education is key and opens many doors, Dorie Dillard Austin TX, anything less than being thorough can close them quickly!

Our industry is constantly evolving and being 'in the know' on subtle changes in the way of doing business can be ginormous during a transaction, Anna "Banana" Kruchten! Experience separates true professionals from those who wanna be.

Years ago, as a much younger person, I lost my x-ray vision glasses. I do hope that whoever found them has put them to best use, Michael Jacobs

I try to ask all my clients, what are you looking for in a house.? I then try to find something comes close. When inventories are low, we often have to take what the market will share with us so it’s pretty easy to explain why it’s not exactly what they’re looking for 🙂

Sometimes I worry about what I might see if I take a peek around the corner, haha.

Good morning, Wanda... when I trained agents I always told them they needed to learn how to set expectations with their clients up-front -- in terms of how the relationship will work, how the buying or selling process will work, how communication will work, etc., etc.

Giving it our best effort for clients is what we do, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS.  Pulling a rabbit out of a hat isn't part of the sales process, however!

As a child, I read the comics every chance possible and was enamored by the superhero's ability to use their powers to save the day. After growing up, I realized that we can achieve great things but only with 2 feet on solid ground and realistic goals, Endre Barath, Jr.!

That's just it, we are unable to see what's happening around the corner because we haven't gotten there yet, Brian England. Unless you have a drone! LOL

Education creates a lighter approach to some heavy things that can happen during the process, Nina Hollander, Broker. Agents were lucky to have you to guide them successfully!

Hi Wanda- love your point here. Agents guide their sellers and buyers but they cannot know where all of the landmines are...you know where they might be but no one ever knows where they all are.
