Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

I had a closing today that I can attribute directly to an ActiveRain blog post and an agent that lost focus on their purpose, but first the whole story.

I received a call from a potential client asking for a free market analysis. The caller had placed a few calls to other agents and when she explained that she was trying to sell the family home and had a buyer but needed to know the value of the home. She really needed an appraisal but was going about it the wrong way. The agents she had talked to all told her they would provide the market analysis but charged for that service if they didn’t get the listing.

I asked the caller how they managed to find me and was told that it was from a blog post on a condo development for Active Adults. They explained that they were looking for a condo for their mother so that she would have an easier lifestyle and then would sell the house.

As the culmination to the story, we closed on the condo, and I will get the listing on the house.

 When we offer a service, we should provide the service with no conditions.

Ed - This seems like such a simple concept that it should go without saying.

GREAT post!  Wow - when will people "get" this?  That when we say one thing - but our actions speak something else - people will find out!  Congratulations on your closing - I know with your integrity, you will have many more!

Doing a CMA for free is something we do all the time.  We do ask the reason for the request and many times we end up with the listing.

Are you serious with the ways things are happening in the country, it is hard to tell honesty anymore.
