Leave no husbands, wives or partners behind!
A woman called, wanting to see some properties, she also asked that I bring over buyer paperwork to sign. Showing up at the house a little early, her husband (HUSBAND?!) was there...she failed to disclose that she was married. Besides, he knew nothing about her plans and was extremely unhappy!
He was supposed to be on the golf course by that time but was putting away the gardening tools when I arrived. Can you just imagine the lively conversation between them after I jumped in the car and drove down the road?!

That experience, back then, taught me a very real estate valuable lesson and a new practice to introduce to business. Leave no husbands, wives or partners behind that will be making a decision, whether buying or selling. Not only a timesaver, it also ensures that all are on board, no hidden agendas.
You can't buy happiness but you can
buy a HOME. It's the next best thing! ~Me
Sometimes, I will check social media accounts, go to white pages.com or peruse county records to qualify consumers and make it clear up front, that EVERYONE shows up at the party or simply call it off. Wasting valuable resources with less than sincere people, is also time you can never get back.
