Sometimes it’s easy to make a mistake and kill the deal.
I had a listing that didn’t look great “on paper”, meaning the sellers were way out of price for what they were describing to me. However, I told my assistant that I would go through the process with them to see exactly where things were. The people reminded me of my Mom and Dad and out of respect for them, I wanted to give this my best shot. After meeting with them in the office, I set an appointment to go see their property. It was to be after picking up my kids from school. I didn’t write it down on my calendar.(Big Mistake) My daughter called and asked to do something for her and off I went. I called the seller today to apologize and they have “made other arrangements”. I felt bad, mainly because I had not meant to disrespect their time. I will be looking to see this property in the MLS – Oh Well.
I’ve determined that there are 4 things to do when I make a mistake.
- Take responsibility that is really mine
- Ask for forgiveness
- Make Amends
- Move On!
I’m on to present an offer to a seller. I’m writing this blog for therapy too!! I hate that I make mistakes.
