Nerdin Gardens: A Moving Story

 

My grandson was visiting for several weeks and enjoyed playing near the home garden, when all of a sudden he came rushing into the house, breathless, yelling, "Gma...I found a dead cat outside."

 

Perplexed, I asked, "How do you know it is dead!?"

He said, "Because I pissed in its ear and it didn't move."

 

"You did what?!", I was shocked!

 

"You know," explained my grandson.

 

"I bent over and went Pssssst...and it didn't move!"

 

Tie-in to the real estate industry:

It's up to each one of us to breathe new life into business to remain successful. If the market is slow, find ways to get in front of past clients, new buyers and sellers. Create a pipeline, remain Top of Mind, otherwise, people will assume you are no longer practicing real estate.

 

Pssssst...That could mean the death of your business!

The story ties in nicely with real estate, Endre Barath, Jr., plus a little humor is good for all of us!

When you Pssssst a cat, it wakes up quickly and is ready to defend itself, Brian England. That kitty was definitely not with us any more!

Taking the time to effectively converse holds its value for all involved Kat Palmiotti, especially when someone is Pssssst! 🤣

The story is one, where active listening gets to the heart of the situation quickly, Laura Cerrano. Kids communicate on a simpler level and adults must meet them there!

What I take from this post is that we need to ask the right questions to make sure that we are communicating correctly.

Hi Wanda:

That short story and the Pssssst made me laugh, but not staying in touch in various ways with those we know and have worked with, and prospects, is no laughing matter, as is asking the right questions and being clear in your communication.

Enjoy your weekend!

Glad to tickle that funny bone! Today, I connected with 100 people by handing out tickets in my office to a local event. Staying in front of past clients is rewarding in so many ways, Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543.

Good afternoon, Jeff Dowler, CRS. Though we communicate on different levels, we can still be successful in our efforts. It might take some extra time or patience but it can be done!

Hi Wanda,
This reminded me of a couple of things. Remember Art Linkletters show "Kids Say the Darndest Thing?" I loved that show.  The other, of course, is what Ginger Harper said: What you hear isn't always what was meant. Follow-up questions are definitely necessary.

Communication - the spoken word. What is intended and what is understood? 

Asking questions to clarify and gain understanding is the key to not being pssssst on Miss Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! 

You asked your grandson the right questions 🤣🤣

The art of listening means to pause before assuming the worst in any situation unless it's an emergency, of course, Ginger Harper!

I loved that show as well, Carol Williams because of the blatant honesty of the young ones. They do tell it like it is until society teaches them otherwise!

well that made me chuckle out loud.  Enough for my agent across the hall to say "what is so funny". Clearly also a good message.
