Sometimes I can not deliver....

I did not get a listing this week and although I am disappointed I am not too disappointed. You see, when I go to your house for a listing presentation I am also interviewing you!

Sometimes I just don't get that feeling of "yes, let's sell it!" Sometimes I get an uneasiness that tells me either I ate something bad for lunch or that something is not right.

Sometimes it is because you greet me with a resounding lambasting of your last real estate agent. I know you withdrew your listing at its expiration. I know that your house was way overpriced. A clue to overpricing - no activity. When a listing is new it generates the most activity.

Sometimes it is because I can not deliver the marketing strategy that you require. It is best to not take a listing than to fail to deliver!

Being a buyer or seller agent is a relationship that requires communication, teamwork and flexibility. Sometimes it just isn't meant to be but that does not mean I wish you anything but the best...

Good luck and if I have a buyer that is a good fit, I will bring them by!
