Real Estate Agent with Chevaux Group, PLLC


Southern Home


For those of you who are fans of the classic movie "Gone With The Wind", Scarlett O'Hara has a famous quote where she says , " I'll think about that tomorrow".   I have always loved this saying for a variety of reasons.  Sometimes when I just don't have an answer right then or there or I am simply overwhelmed, this is my fall back line. 

Now of course I can't use this line as an excuse to escape difficult challenges, but it can help me have the time to regroup, think and to make a plan.  It is never a good idea to answer questions that you aren't sure about with an answer that may be lacking in accurate information.   Also I find that a stressful situation is often a good time to take some time to assess how you will handle it.  

For those of us in real estate, every day and each transaction is different and many times met with challenges and questions.  An off the cuff response might not always be the best route to take.  Needing to do some research and getting back to people is best when you don't have all of the facts.  

So when you hear me say, "I'll think about that tomorrow" doesn't mean I am brushing you off, it simply means I am working on a solution or gathering information.  Presenting good information is so important in our business.  

Miss O'Hara might have been avoiding difficult situations however, as your agent you can know that I am working on getting my clients the best information and the best solution to their questions and roadblocks in a real estate transaction.  Give me a call today and I will let you know if I need to get back with you and I will!  

Chevaux Group is dedicated in providing to our clients the best real estate service around.  Give us a call today!  We look forward to assisting you!

Interesting perspective and comments, yet I would be reluctant to reply to a challenging question with your favorite response. Whenever anybody has a challenging question, I always want to know why that question is important to them, so that I answer all of their issues and concerns concisely and comprehensively. Regardless, if it works for you, great.

Paula, this is indeed a great line. Things tend to change and very often "tomorrow" gives us totally different perspectives.

Do nothing, and especially say nothing, in haste. BTW - I'm commenting from Jonesboro GA today, home of the "real" Tara (the real house the fictional Tara was patterned after acording to local lore).

I encourage you to check with your State Association and inquire if they offer a hot-line you can call into to get answers to questions insuring you are always in compliance with the State's license law.

Hi Paula, we agree, and it is just like the old "I will sleep on it".
