Crazy Sh*t In Real Estate: Don't judge a book by its cover

Preconceived notions will really kill you in this industry

“Don’t judge a book by its cover” — a lesson Buddy West learned in a very humbling way when he was out showing a house to a man whom he thought was a drug dealer.

When you’re in the real estate industry, it’s incredibly important to not prejudge your clients. Instead, ask the right questions, and be open-minded, fair and open with all who come seeking your help.

(Spoiler: The client had a little something to do with “your friendly neighborhood Spider Man.”)
