As a real estate agent there are ways to phrase things to your clients in order to have the best possible home to show. If a house is cluttered instead of focusing on the stuff the clients need to dump, instead emphasize how staging a home can make it sell for more money. If a house is smelly instead of emphasizing the odor, suggest a contact for a deep cleaning prior to listing the property. When showing a property wait to hear the preferences of the clients before giving your own opinions.
- You don’t have to be on call 24 hours a day, but it’s important to set reasonable expectations with your clients.
- Guessing based on age or appearance is not advisable when you are identifying a client’s family or significant other.
- I think it might be helpful for people to envision their own décor if they had a little bit more of a blank slate.
