So I come up with the bright idea you cut, I pick.No way one half of the sliver slab of pie is going to be bigger, noticeably larger. Because it is a Texas two step involving both of the guys with forks in their hands and wearing a bib.
So when the real estate coach of the home buyer decides with a friend to roll in to the driveway with the sale pending rider parked on top of the red, white and blue signage speared in the front lawn, he senses the owner is not so perky, friendly, happy to see him. Wearing the REALTOR "R" means setting, keeping expectation out in front, out in the open through out the property listing real estate sale.
I explained later to the visitor that it is how we react to the situation that determines if real estate feathers get ruffled or not.If he senses she is not so cranked to see him and his stranger friend drop in, maybe she has an appointment in five minutes (she did). Maybe she has things going on in her life that are causing distraction, something personal on her mind. (She did that had nothing to do with buyer.) So if she is less than Martha Stewart or Oprah friendly, smiling ear to ear under the stage house lights, accept it.
Don't expect her waiting round the clock for a visit.
Smiling prettily in front of the blinking red light camera one, two and three wearing stage make up.
Accept timing was off. In life it is hit or miss.
And it was a miss.
Gutter ball. It happens.
Don't take it personal.
And make an appointment.
And the reason for the stop was what?
With an agenda, mission or to kill time before the dinner bell rang? People have daily lives and tasks to complete each and everyday. Timing is everything and when the reception is not what you expect, don't think it is because of something you did, or what the other should be doing to make you feel right at home. You landed on the wrong time at the place. That's all. Or maybe if the shoe was on the other foot, the visitor does love, looks forward to drop in unannounced company. Welcomes and embraces it.
