Consumers Can See Right Through You

Consumers Can See Right Through You!

 

Some people think that transparency means letting it all hang out online in party scenes, showing off the golden globes or divulging confidential information (TMI). All of these things have a place in business, if...

You are a:

  • nightclub owner that is attracting patrons to partake
  • stripper or escort wanna be, looking for supportive money sources
  • main stream media outlet, driving traffic with salacious headlines

 

In my opinion, transparency in real estate is sharing part of yourself that matters to homebuyers / sellers. They may also look for longevity and experience when researching a real estate professional to represent them. 

 

Maintaining a positive demeanor and attitude is an important aspect to guiding consumers to their ultimate goals. Both of these together can enhance new relationships, creating trust between parties.

Here are things they may also consider:

  • Reliability
  • Availability
  • Sales Record
  • A Good Listener
  • Genuine Qualities
  • Determined Mindset

 

Working relationships have the ability to last decades and beyond, as clients for life. Some turn into dear friends that keep only you in mind when referring family members and friends whether buying or selling.

 

Transparency matters. Professionalism counts. Trust is big and consumers really can see right through you. Best to remember that!

Using two ears, rather than one (big) mouth or it can be a missed opportunity, Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho!

Hi Wanda- well said. People want to work with people they feel are genuine. I know I do. I'd rather have someone whose personality might be a bit off putting but know that that is exactly who they are than someone who is not who they appear to be.

Through the years, I have hugged many porcupines and am so thankful, Kathy Streib, for the insight to know there was much more to discover, inside!

At times I have been surprised by someone that I know and what they post on their social media accounts.

When posting online, I still keep my family in mind. Would not want to disappoint them or shame them in any way, Brian England. Of course, some people like the shock value when presenting themselves, definitely not my style!

Perhaps we can call what we should share as "professional transparency"!

Good morning Wanda. Transparency is good when you tie it to professionalism. Otherwise it may be classified as useless chatter. Enjoy your day.

Funny thing late last night I had a call from a consumer, potential buyer, who could not secure an offer on some vacant land. His buyer's agent was not responsive. Hmm Congratulations on the feature.

You know Wanda sometimes it seems like agents (and everyone really) would 'know' that being genuine, transparent and trustworthy is as old as the hills and works miracles building a successful life and business.  But no, not so. Good to continue reminding people!

Hi Wanda:

Some transparency is a very good thing, but it depends on what's shared and how, and with whom. Sometimes it's simply TMI or even inappropriate. One needs to keep in mind your audience. Some things just don't need to be shared.

Som things allow people to get to know us, while others do not serve our businesses well, Jeff Dowler, CRS. We need to know the difference and proceed accordingly!

We have to be mindful of presenting ourselves in a positive manner and avoid issues that can offend some people. Transparency in all that we do is a better way to live our lives

Most of us are professional's and carry ourselves that way. It okay to let people get to know the 'real' us to a degree with hobbies, interests, charities but some take it too far and end up sharing waaaaaay too much. I see it every day, Ed Silva!
