Top 5 Things That Are NOT Cool For Real Estate Pros, and SOHO's

Reblogger Wallace S. Gibson, CPM

5 - Being your own secretary (your time is too valuable to spend alot of time typing) * I've BEEN a secretary and can certainly answer my own phone AND I don't fax * I have myFAX

4 - Having to switch your phone over to a fax (nothing irritates people more then hearing that fax tone when they call) * Again, no fax machine * myFAX is GREAT

3- Kids yelling or babies crying in the background (unless its home daycare, prospective clients arent real understanding about that) * no babies but occasionally a dog barking if I am not FAST enough with the treat!

2- Having to meet at Starbucks or a hotel lobby (great for socializing - but often times for business, not so much) * why not meet at the property?  That is the BEST place to start.  They can come to my office if they want to see my EGO WALL

1 - Having to use the computers at Kinkos or the public library (you can only use the "my computer is down" excuse for so long) * I'll have my iPAD and mi-fi phone * NO problems!
