Close It And It's Yours....Otherwise It May Be Mine Or It May Be Hers!

Why are you announcing the details of your future business?  We’re all chasing that same rabbit, and we often receive the same phone call from the same seller. Is it a way of securing that piece of business in the minds of your coworkers to announce your next appointment?

I’ve previously witnessed an agent in the office announcing that he had an appointment at a certain address.  I wasn’t sure what the point of that announcement was other than to make it known that he now assumed that everyone knew it was HIS piece of business!!  I thought that was borderline shady, at best. 

There could have been several calls to our office by the same homeowner, and the agent who closes wins, as far as I’m concerned.  No one owns anything unless he/she can close it.  To stir the pot and create tension within the office by making those announcements was a slimy way of doing business and creating a question of trust of others.  That agent is no longer with us, but the memories of how people do business DO linger!!

Arrogant, thought he had it sewn up. Almost deserves to los it through his own short sightedness.

Hi Corinne.... arrogance does not belong in an office..... it needs to be controlled outside of the office.... a touch of arrogance when combined with confidence works out fine but make sure you have a nice smile with it!!!  I did that and made out just fine...

People need to understand what an independent contractor is - we may be in the same office but we're not on the same team!  There seems to be a boastful braggart in every office.  That's why I work from home!
