The Lost of a Potential Client

The loss of a potential Client, a lesson learned. Recently it was brought to my attention that a mutual friend was selling their house. My first thought was why didn't you choose me to be your Realtor but I didn't even have my license at the time, so it was fine. Long story short after receiving my license , I decided to look at the property on the MRIS. Lord behold I was looking at the worst pictures that I ever seen in my life for a listing that was not an REO or Foreclosure but an actual listing. As an agent there is a sense of respect for each other in the industry, so instead of pointing out the obvious mistake of their current agent I took the let me help you guys when the contract is up approach. 2-3 Months down the line another agent who is family friend saw the pictures and let the steam out the kettle pot. Now I've learned an important lesson, passiveness is a disservice, always speak against anything less than the best, mediocre work will not be tolerated.

The Importance of Business Cards

Before I became a Realtor, I use to think of business cards as a waste of space and paper. Now I view it as an essential piece of my business. The reason why is because conversation with strangers are usually fast, quick and short. In less than 2 minutes you have to sell yourself and gain trust  by your appearance, conversation, and demeanor.  With a Business card you are able to leave your professional service with a potential client.
