A friend of mine remarked one time that people tend to be either INTERESTING or INTERESTED. Now personally, I don’t think I am very interesting.
I know my business, follow market trends, read constantly, am up to date on local and world events, can talk a blue streak about sports, love my family and friends and love selling real estate – but I just don’t know how ‘interesting’ that is. In fact, I don’t think anyone is ever going to walk away from a party saying, “I just met the most interesting guy.”
On the other hand, I am totally INTERESTED. I am interested in everything about other people – where they went to school, how they got to Northern Virginia, the ages of their children, where they live, their hopes and dreams, what they are reading, where they go on vacation, etc.. etc.
I talk to grocery store cashiers and bag boys, my barber (although that is a very short conversation), anyone with a dog, neighbors, strangers in the coffee shop, the fellow behind the deli counter, policemen, folks at the gym, the fellow seated next to me at a baseball game, visitors at church – well, you get the picture.
What do my clients say? As long as it’s “professional, knowledgeable, reliable, responsive, honest and totally willing to go the extra mile” – well, I’m happy to settle for not being ‘interesting’.
INTERESTED in knowing more about the real estate market in Northern Virginia and how I can help you find that perfect house?
