A few weeks ago, something happened to me that hadn't happened in a very, very long time...I met someone who truly looked at me as a commodity. I have to say it didn't feel good...and actually got my back up.
My best friend found out at a family reunion that her cousin and family were moving from NY to Central MA. My friend was soooo excited to be able to refer me and knew that this was my turf. I was excited at such a "warm" referral...I guess I thought it was a slam dunk.
So I reached out. It turns out this cousin and family are on their 5th relocation...they pretty much have it down to a science. She handles the outgoing property (getting it ready to sell and seeing it through to close) and while they jointly agree on the town and house they will be moving to, he handles the incoming (their terms not mine).
In our first conversation, he set about to tell me how he works...hey wait a minute! Isn't that supposed to be my line??? OK, let's have it.
