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!

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.
