The Fast, Sometimes Funny and Frequently Furious Faces of Skepticism

Have you noticed just a "wee-bit o' weirdness" in how folks may approach buying and/or selling properties with a certain display of skepticism lately?

The faces of buyers and sellers can mold into the most interesting depictions ..and may I say, not always in good humor as this funny photo may suggest.

When it comes to getting to the bottom line, the “faces” of skepticism can come fast and furious around assorted matters that loom heavy before us....such as the

___ expediency ___ quality ___ condition ___ pricing ___ integrity___ motives ___  intentions of ... a) the REALTOR® who (they may wonder) is representing their interests, and b) “the other side”… 

And so can unfold an Us vs Them scenario where transactions can flounder when the parties involved assume adversarial roles. We don't want unhappy conclusions.  So...how  do we come to Happy Closings....??


Over the years, we have come to see the wisdom of  ready communication based on the Partnership Model in business and personal relationships. That can be the foundation for success, I believe. We love the idea of a “win-win” approach right from the start. And we dedicate ourselves as co-facilitators to keeping the lines of positive communication open throughout the process.  Have you found that this works for you?

Frustration can be at the heart of any negotiation process, for sure.

I think some folks are just weird... and it has nothing to do with the market.. I just shy away from them... I mean maybe I'm weird... Oh way have a nice day...

MaryAnn -- there is weird, eccentric, "touched" and many other conditions along the entire continuum of humanity we have to deal with in our vocations.   Sometimes they are off the shoulder of the highway we prefer to travel, and we need to be able to say "good bye."

BTW  - I came over on Patricia's recommendation.  You have written this up very well.
