Are you working with the right clients? Do you know who they are?

Are you working with the right clients?  Do you know who they are?

 

I love my career in Atlanta real estate and strive to do the absolute best for my clients and their needs.  One of the things that I have realized in almost 10 years of helping folks sell, buy, lease and property manage homes in the Buckhead/Sandy Springs areas is that you cannot help everyone and you probably shouldn’t want to.

 

Team PhotoWhat I mean by this is I want to help clients who value what I can do for them and the fact that I will go the extra mile for them.  Along with this it’s important that we can work together to determine intelligent list prices for selling homes, smart sales prices for bidding on homes, and that the clients will take my input into consideration.

 

If folks aren’t going to work WITH us – like preparing a home for sale by de-cluttering, doing maintenance and pricing it right, we are not a good fit.  It’s hard enough to make things happen in today’s real estate environment when clients ARE working with us. 

 

Lastly, the final aspect of who is the right client for me will understand that sometimes things do come up in life and I need to be somewhere else (like my son’s Varsity High School State Semi-Finals this week!)    I just had a delightful client who is coming into town fully support and encourage my re-arranging our schedule so that I CAN be where I want and need to be for my family and son.    Thank you!

Who are you working with and should you be?

Yes, fabulous summary "her life was then miserable... " it makes no sense to torture yourself when you know you cannot meet expectations in the current market and still try to anyways.  I am not a fan of torture myself:-)

All of our client engagements are a two way street, but I doubt most of our clients realize this!

On the few occassions where walking away has been the best option I have not looked back and have been thrilled to focus my energies in a better, more rewarding direction. 

Christine,

It certainly does need to be drawn and if we don't do it, it will not happen!  BTW, I went to Naples High School - it certainly is paradise.   Enjoy.

 

All the best, Michelle

Michelle- here another power house that made it work!

"God first, family second, career third" (Mary Kay)

"God first, family second, career third" was a belief of Mary Kay Ash (1915-2001), the Dallas-based founder of the Mary Kay cosmetics company. Her third priority (career) certainly did well for her!

Michelle, now that is one gem of a client you have who is "human" enough to realize that you are also "human" and that family events are important enough to postpone an appointment. After all, your son's High School State Semi-Finals is a once-in-a-lifetime event!

You make an excellent point.  There are clients who simply are not a good "fit" and it really is best to recongnize those situations early on and not take on the client.  In that way, you are able to devote more attention to those clients who are in sync with your approach and business style.
