How do you respond when a potential client demands to know your stance on a controversial issue, and you know they won’t work with you if you disagree?
- In a polarized political climate, clients may press real estate agents and brokers on their personal politics.
- Real estate professionals' job is to serve each client to the best of their ability regardless of political affiliations. But not every client is a match.
- To formulate an appropriate response in a tense circumstance, remember that respect is key, say something nice or don't say anything, and always fight fire with water.
