Yes, I am thanking myself, but not for the reasons you are thinking. The two (2) words, most people like to hear are their name and thank you!
Think of how often you use a client’s name. Your child’s name. Your mother’s and father’s name. Your friend’s name. Your spouse’s name. Sometimes we even mispronounce the name, which is worse, especially if you have mispronounced it several times. Everyone likes to hear their name…they know you are focused on them in some way shape or form. It personalizes the conversation. They know you are speaking about them, to them and not just talking.
The other word, or should I say words, is thank you. We just don’t say it enough. For big things and for little things. Someone opens the door for you, carries a package, compliments you, whatever the action or aspect, a thank you is always appreciated. It says you are aware of them and are thankful for all they have done. Two little words mean so much. So my fellow REALTORS, our business is service…use these words as often as you can. Oh, did I mention how much I appreciate your reading my blog? In case I have forgotten…Thank You!
And to all the men and women in the military who have served or are currently serving our country…thank you for your service.
Until Next Monday…
