Mind your (Tech) Manners!

I have been working with a delightful young couple. As usual, when they contacted me I set up a pre-showing interview so we could get aquainted. We went over theirwish- list of things they wanted in their first home. I also like to find out about their hobbies, and recreation interests. We chit chat a little bit because I want my new buyers to feel comfortable with me. I have a son about their age, and one thing I noticed internally was that I want these kids to be treated the way I would want my own kids treated if they were buying a house. They let me know they had attempted to buy the house they were currently renting and things had gone south. I have no desire to place blame or guilt on other agents. This is a hard business!

I was curious how they found me. I spend a fair amount of dollars creating a good internet presense, and I like to know what works. So I asked them: how did you find me?

They googled ” Honest Realtor” in Spokane. They said they did not feel that the other agent(s) they had dealt with in the past were being truthful with them. Sad.

The main reason I am sharing this with my real estate community is because I had some really nice references online, and that is where the adjective ” honest” is found in conjunction with my name. I think it is critical in this day and age to have a good, updated variety of testimonials, references on your websites.

Proverbs 22:1 states:

 
A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, Favor is better than silver and gold.

I am pleased to say that it has really been a blessing working with these kids. Today we will find out if they got the house we made an offer on, I think I am just as anxious as they are. It has been a long haul for them, we had to back out of one last week. Third time is a charm?

I genuinley strive to be above board in all of my dealings. Proactive, Fiercly loyal, and it is very satisfying when somebody settles into the right house and you know they will live happily ever after!
