Finding the right client may feel like a luxury, especially when the market is slow and leads are scarce. After all, isn’t any client a good client, as long as you can get them to the closing table?
Well, no, not really. No matter where you are in your real estate journey, homing in on the client that’s best for you and your professional goals is important:
- If you’re a new agent, it helps you establish yourself as a professional and paves the way for a lifetime of referrals and valuable introductions.
- If you’re a veteran agent, it ensures that as your business gets busier, you’re filling your pipeline with folks who’ll be a pleasure to work with and who will enhance your reputation.
While your pipeline is probably full of good clients and bad clients, working with the right client just makes everything smoother and more pleasant. It allows you to play to your professional strengths and helps you to focus on the parts of your business you enjoy most.
