ALAMEDA REAL ESTATE THIS WEEK
I think about my job/enterprise/work a lot! I want to please everybody! But sometimes that’s just not possible.
I was updating my listing presentation this afternoon and this evening..and was looking at some of the letters/notes that were written by clients (now friends) to me over the past years.
They are so kind and grateful! I never know when I’ll hit a chord with clients. But each client can be a true relationship. I say ‘can’…not ‘is.’
I’m at the time, right now, to be able to sit at a table and just listen. However, that’s a bit difficult at this moment because we’re not allowed to sit at tables these days with clients.
I was speaking with some folks recently…and laying down the line. Does one of us cross the line, or not? We weren’t getting anywhere, and they were frustrated with the real estate process…and so was I.
First things first…I let them know they had some options. They could fire me. They could drop the price. They could keep the price where they wanted (i.e. wished it would be), and the property would sit…vacant…
Real estate is rough. It can be severe. It can be rewarding. These clients can AND do live the life they want: surrounded by family via phone, skype, zoom. But to keep comparing the current to the ancient past..is a real waste of time and life.
Here’s to moving on: both mentally and physically.
I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull.
