Now that is loss prevention!

I had an afternoon appointment today, (don't you just love working daylight hours), and the couples 9 year old daughter, came in from playing.  I was introduced to her and she asked me a few inquisitive questions. ( Her parents tried to stop her, but I told them that is was all right),  Then out of the blue, she asked if I would like to hear a joke.

I could see the horror in the parents eyes, but I told her, YES, I would love to hear a joke! And she continued.

A man went into a Pet Shop and bought 2 Goldfish.  He name them "one" and "two".  The reason for the names was, that if "one" died...he would still have "two"!

Well needless to say I laughed pretty good, and thanked her for joke and off she went to play.  The parents tried to appologize, but, I stopped them.  "It is important that she feel comfortable when I am around so that the move is easy on her also.  Besides...I am a sucker for a kid with a joke!"

Don't ignore the kids!  They grow up and buy and sell houses also.  The better repore you have with a "family" the better the chance of referrals...even from the kids!

Morning William,

We don't often have the opportunity to work with young ones. Our community is an age restricted one and most often those purchasing don't bring their grand children. We have to make time for that age bracket elsewhere. Thankfully I have four grandchildren that keep me active and very busy listening and watching. Hopefully they will tell their friends grandparents I am in the Real Estate business. LOL

Hally New Year!

All the little children are our future, we have to nurture their interaction, because that is how they become productive adults! You were a great agent for giving her the stage! Kudos!!!

Bill I sat with a cat in my lap during a listing presentation.  I know it helped win over the wife who was very distant at first!
