The result? A breakdown of communications and misunderstandings.

Have you ever thought about how a listing appointment is similar to a job interview? That’s because it is! You would never show up at a job interview without a resume, the capability to discuss your plan of action to tackle the job, and provide testimonials as to your expertise and suitability for the job.

The goal was to design the house to appeal to the largest number of potential buyers. You’ve done that. The emotional roller coaster is back at the station and you are ready to unbuckle and jump off the ride.
