Part of being a successful agent is having the ability to get back on the horse quickly!
This business, more than most, is filled with disappointment and rejection.
I think that’s why a large number of the industry’s successful agents come from a creative background – you can work on something for hours and have nothing to show for it at the end of the day.
We’ve all worked with “that” buyer. You know, the one you work with for months, the one you show 100 properties, sending them every listing in their price range, only to have them buy something without you at an open house on a Sunday.
Get back on the horse. Don’t look back. Move on to your next buyer.
We’ve all worked for “that” seller. You know, the one you hold open houses every weekend for, the one you are perfect for, working tirelessly to accommodate every appointment, only to have them drastically reduce the price, give the listing to another agent and have them sell it a week after your agreement expires.
Get back on that horse. Don’t look back. Move on to your next listing.
There is no agent who bats 1000. The sooner you realize this, and accept it, the happier you will be – and more successful you will become.
