How frustrating!

My iPhone died. It was time. So, I decided to purchase an Atrix. Two of my sons are Android users and they convinced me to at least take a look at it.

This thing is a computer with a dual processor. I don’t know what that means, but anyone who seems to know reacts very positively. It took me two days to personalize it and get all my information imported into it.

And then I hated it! It wouldn’t do what I told it to do. It kept dialing after I was already on a call. It wouldn’t save my data. I thought it was operator problems and was ready to go back to a simpler life with an iPhone 4.

When I took it back to my carrier, I told him all the frustrations I was having. Then he said something profound… “Hmmm, it looks like this phone is defective.”

What?! All my frustrations and time investment in this super phone and it wasn’t ME? It was the PHONE? I happily got another Atrix and spent a couple of hours setting it up and… it is amazing. Simple, powerful, elegant. And it works so I can work!

What’s this have to do with real estate in Raleigh? Many people are frustrated because they can’t seem to get their house sold. Their agent listed for the price they wanted and hasn’t been seen since. The sign is growing rusty in the yard and not one buyer is coming to see the house. Now the listing is getting ready to expire. How frustrating!

Maybe, just like my phone, there is a defect in this system. My clients know they can trust me to give them the honest truth about pricing and preparing their house for the market. They know they can count on me for the communication, marketing, administration and negotiation to bring the deal to the closing table. I don’t put my sign in your yard to collect buyers for other houses. I get your home sold. And that’s what you want, right?

If you are saying…”Hmmm, this agent’s service is defective.” Give me a call. You’ll find I’m powerful and elegant and can make your life so much simpler!
