The Frustration of Clients...even after saying they understand the market!

 Words of wisdom...

Stressed and Frustrated

As we start the new year, and jump into the process, I am surprised to learn that many clients still feel the level of high frustration at the idea that their house isn't selling quickly enough--even in this market.  As their realtor, we are there to listen to their frustration, share valuable information, and many times hold their hands as they state their feelings of anxiety.  This may be an area that is difficult to uphold as the weeks turn into months for many sellers.  But I think I think that the best remedy for us as professionals is to maintain a realistic and positive attitude as we consistently speak to our clients.  Although they may not want to hear that their property has not been shown as often as they would like, they welcome the contact that we can offer, and the ear that is there to listen to their frustration.
