You’ve heard, “It takes all kinds.” But I’d much rather a world without selfish people.
Real estate can be a tough business. Whenever you deal with people, things can be quite trying.
But, “It takes all kinds!” you hear people shout.
Well, that depends.
If you’re referring to:
- people of all colors and creeds,
- who have different interests, hobbies and pastimes,
- which when we meet them open our eyes to different ways of doing things.
then I’m with you!
But some people are just downright selfish.
They only think about what’s going to benefit themselves and treat everyone around them like “things” rather than people.
I don’t want all kinds of clients, just the right kinds
I never knew how selfish some people could be until I got into real estate—which is essentially a service industry.
The phrase, “The customer is always right” never met my last client. Yes, this is one of those posts.
When you are contacted and asked to provide service, with no payment or signing of documents, there’s a level of common courtesy that seems to be missing in America 2013.
It’s more like, “What can I get away with.” than “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
I’m happy to help anyone in Louisville with all kinds of real estate advice or service, but if you are one of those people who could care less how your actions affect others… please don’t call me.
Thanks in advance!
