No one such question...it really depends on the client and their specific needs to know the "right" question to get into their head.

WHY?

Insert the next 100 questions behind this one word and you'll get to know your client. I respectfully disagree with a few here, every client is different but, the core questions are the same for each (with a few exceptions), how they answer them is what's revealing. I ask the same questions of everybody, how they answer may change my followup questions.

I like them to do lists. What they like, what they do not. What they cant live with out and what they want if available. I also do that with areas, towns, cities and or neighborhoods which helps narrow down what to see.

The question THEY ask or the statement THEY make that is preceded by direct and sustained eye contact must be follow my the most powerful needs-analysis question. That question is, "Why is this important to you?"

The truth lives no less than 3 levels deep.
