Whatever happened to "Thank You"? A Daily Best Practice.

By
Real Estate Agent with Envision Real Estate Group, LLC.

Thank YouAs children we are all taught a few simple principles:  Don't talk to strangers, If you can't say nothing good; don't say anything at all, Please, and Thank You.  Of course, we are taught much more, but these are some of the basic things that impact us and our business on a daily basis.

You ever go to the store or restaurant and purchase something and the cashier not greet you, and then when receiving your receipt or change they say, "Here ya go!" "There ya go!", and some even say nothing and wait for you to say Thank You.  What is up with that?

Thank you should be a part of our daily best practices!  Life is busy in general and too often we forget about the little things that could in fact brighten someones day.  For those of you like myself with a religious focal point we give thanks on a consistent basis to the Lord above.  We should, as professionals, thank our counterparts, assistants, brokers, agents, office staff, and clients daily. 

I've called clients and at the end of the conversation I say, "Thank you for the call".  One said to me, "Ray you called me and I should be thanking you."  Well, my reply was, "If it wasn't for YOU.  I wouldn't be in business!  So thank you for your business!"

Thank you is such a powerful phrase that some of us miss.  Try sending out Thank You cards and letters and see the response you receive.  Try ending every phone conversation with a simple Thank You.  Try telling that person thank you for opening the door.  You will begin to see more and more people appreciate you even more.  Those two words can go so far.  Implement, the power of "Thank You" into your best practices today!!!Ft.

I will end on this short note.  THANK YOU for reading this post!!!

You sound like a really warm and honorable Realtor.Fort Smith is Lucky to have you. I know so many Realtors that are harsh and move from one deal to the next and treat the client like a paycheck . We must some and remember that the client is our pay check and we should be darn appreciative that they picked us to resent them and yes we need to THANK THEM for there business.

Ditto Sharon H.,  unfortunately as quickly as it is learned is how quickly it is forgotten.  It burns me up to obviously hold the door open for someone who is coming and get no response at all.  Sometimes I find myself saying 'You're welcome' for them in an audible voice.  The other thing is to speak to someone as you pass by and they not say a word.  It's rude, period.  Sorry :)

Ray  Thank you for the post!  It really is important to say those two little words.  I keep a stash of note cards on my desk so that I'm constantly reminded to send them.  I think it's a "best practice" for Realtors.
