I think each buyer and seller is unique and the strategy with each situation must be unique as well.
Each person and each situation always seems to be just different enough where my approach will vary somewhat. The focus is listening and providing pertinent information.

Make the tough decision to let them go ... and choose not to work with them - for various reasons. Thankfully, that does not happen often.
It is really being in tune with what is needed and wanted and responding. I think Michael Jacobs made an excellent point about listening...there is not enough listening going around. A
I try to roll with the punches and do what they expect of me.

Every client is unique, and my approach is too.
I have had to work through very few tough clients but the ones I do remember; most were the ones that had to have special handling and work with consulates in different countries

I recently extended an escrow that shouldn't have been extended but closed
