Know Who You Are Working With

When it comes to recruitment and working with people, you need to figure out two important things. Do they want to do the work, and can they do it? For FSBOs, remember to never make the client wrong, because this will make them less willing to work with you. Instead, educate them and improve their understanding. Lead with serving and add real value to the process for you to be the one who gets that listing.
