It costs nothing to be kind.
There are days when I hear myself say, “Sell real eta tar they say! It will be fun they say!”
It’s been a week. When you look at the clock and it should be 10 PM but it’s 1 PM lawd you know it’s been a week. As I struggle to wrap my head around our crazy market and several deals with crazy moving parts I see a post in a Mastermind group to which I belong. A kind reminder that this crazy market will change, and left behind will be the people with whom you must continue to work that you have treated like garbage all for the sake of getting rich!
The “deal” isn’t worth being a jerk. It’s not work having no compassion or grace. It doesn’t make you look good to your side of the transaction or to anyone. This goes for any profession not just real estate.
Be kind. Be humble. Speak like you want to be spoken to. Pause. Think! Don’t react! Act with professional grace and see if you can’t for a brief moment remember what it might just be like to be in the other persons shoes. Reflect on a time you weren’t so perfect and poised and never made a mistake!
Don’t sell others souls to make you look better or make them look little.
When all is said and done people will remember who you show them you are. You won’t be able to take that back.
Or be quiet
