So today was a big day for me. I found out that I can be a little blunt when I am putting a point across and sometimes share opinions of things I may know as fact but do not necessarily need to be expressed at a specific point and time. That is really profound to me and I agree.
To step back a little I went out this morning to show homes and the rep had a GLAR key that was set on a timer and it would not open so we ended up rescheduling for Friday at 1 to see this place and another location as well. I went back to the office sent out 40 emails to people I know, wrote 6 letters to others, and 1 postcard. Then I talked to one of my buyers and got them to reschedule for Friday so I did not miss my accountability group at 3.
That was a very good idea. We watched a portion of the Floyd Wickman video on FSBOs and discussed it. I made a statement about how I had two offers that were rejected and that had been dropped and got a couple of eyebrows that raised. Come to find out I was not as productive in trying to get the deal to go through as I should have been and my comrads at arms Linda, Noel, and Larry were like the LNL Railroad with excellent tips on how I could have changed my rejections into sales. I applaud them for their efforts and appreciate everything they said. I also decided to be more realistic with my goals and look forward to next week having my goals met and exceeded by better planning on my part.
After the meeting we were in our office section that will begin to be converted in October and I heard one of my group talking to another agent.and going over a deal that had bothered him and after our conversation it made him contact the other agent to try and recoup his ground on negotiations. The other agent listened as he talked to them and understood and was apologetic as well.
I guess what it really boils down to is that you get what you give. Tonight I wrote to an agent on one of my failed deals from last week and asked him a couple of questions that I hoep will spur our negotiations back from the grave.
I will let you know how htat turns out later.
Tonight I wrote an offer on a home in West Point and talked to the buyers and will probably list their mobile home for sale next Wednesday evening. I also set up showings for Friday and Saturday. I am looking at maybe 3 more offers by Saturday night on homes in Louisville. Wish me luck.
