Professional dress can make the difference!

I was in a multiple offer situation the other day.

4 of us were standing in the yard shooting the breeze.

WE were called in one by one.

2 of the agents rushed to be first.

Then the listing agent come out and thank the 3rd agent for coming but\the seller was not going to look at his offer.

Then I was called in.

 

I presented my offer and the countered right away.

Called my clients, got a verbal acceptance and we had a deal.

 

After  wards, I asked the listing agent when we were alone what happened with the other agent?

 

"Did yo see how he was dressed?  My clients didn't feel he would be able to do the job and get the deal done on his side."

 

 

The agent showed up in jeans that were torn in several places and a shirt that had seen it's better days.    This put up a no confidence in that agent to the sellers.

 

I know the agent and  he is a decent agent, but his non-professionalism shot him down before he ever got to the door.

 

Say what you may, but Professionalism is more that just an act.

 

The torn jean look may have it's place, but not in business.
