Did you know I am also human?

Real Estate Professionals are a breed of our own.

We wear many many hats in our quest to meet our and your goals.

But, that doesn't mean you can abuse us.

WE are not perfect.  That is part of the reason we call ourselves  Practicing Real Estate Professionals.

Just like atty's have a Law Practice or a Doctor Practices Medicine.

WE sometimes make mistakes.   We are big enough to handle you pointing out our mistakes.

WE actually appreciate you questioning what we are doing at times.

We do not corner the market on ideas so we will listen to yours, although we may or may not use them.

When something goes wrong or just not quite right, what we don't need is someone Screaming at us with foul language and threats.  WE work hard for you and when we see an issue or you show us an issue we will work HARD for you...but you need to treat us like you would like to be treated.

Remember...You catch more bees with pretty flowers.

Keep cool even you are being insulted or blamed.

Keep it professional and we come out ahead.

It is just a job.

Good morning William.  We all have had or will have those clients who are emotional.  As long as they are venting and not attacking you personally, either verbal or otherwise, I just let them vent.  No one has verbally been abusive to me.  If they should it wouldn't last long, not long at all.

Good morning William,

We do try hard.

Using multisyllable words will confuse them sometimes!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Hi William.  We are human but we don't get to show our true feeling because we are professionals.

Good morning, William Feela we are all human and it's human nature to only be able to "bite down on that tongue" to a certain degree....

Very nice post my friend!  I really enjoy when my efforts are appreciated, as it seems that the majority of people take our hard work for granted.

Good morning William. No one is perfect and each of us wants only courtesy and respect.

William Feela Well put in your post. Unfortunately, I am afraid when there is an issue, it is human nature to follow find blame with others first before looking in mirror.'

William, I hope this was not inspired by a recent (or yet another) bad experience!

Great post Bill, I think we all have to remind people of this fact from time to time.
