Last week , I was walking with my Brother to the local Hardwood store . Being as always I cant even change a light bulb with out getting hurt lol but I have my brother who can do anything I am Luck . Before I get lost in the topic .
Let go back to the point of this Article. I was walking and ran into a new friend as I introduce my brother to my new Friend . I cut of my new friend telling us a story to ask a bunch of questions . After my friend left my brother giving best advice says you don’t give him a change to speak .
My brother was right I wasn’t Listening first then talk . I was doing even worse I was talking over my new Friend . I should be listening . Like we have heard many time in the past we have 2 Ears and 1 Mouth we should listen more the we talk . I of all people should now this I was call Dumbo when I was a kid .
Listening is really listening , You need to be present when you listen . How does this help as buyer / Seller . This Help you understand what going on so you can ask the right questions of the process . If you don’t think you listening isn’t important as client . I had a client who didn’t listen to me and also didn’t read my emails . He moved into his condo and the electricity was turn off . This was Friday ,the Electric company wasn’t going to turn on the Electric on until Monday in December with under 32 Degree weather . The catch the condo was Electric heat .
A tip to help you listen better You should think as if you can learn from everyone you talk to. Each person has information that can make you million dollars or bring you great happiness . This works . If you lose focus at listening ask tell the person you talking to questions . This will help you build Listening SKILLS are important .
