I got a call Tuesday from a guy who's been trying to sell his motorhome for quite awhile. We made the arrangements for me to check out his unit yesterday. While talking with him and inspecting the motorhome he commented how tired he was of trying to sell it himself. After my inspection I gave him an offer (which I usually leave open for a week or so). He said he'd need to talk it over with his wife and would call me back in an hour.
People normally want to talk the deal over with their spouse so I made sure he knew how to reach me and went on my way. Most people call me back if they say they're going to. It's not too often they drop off the face of the earth. After about an hour he did call me back and said they would take my offer. When I went back he mentioned the money was for a new kitchen. The bonus was that he owns an allignment shop and offered me a discount if I ever brought anything in.
One of the best parts of my job is meeting people who do what they say they're going to do and still know how to truly network. He knows he can share my name with any of his buddies and they'll be treated fair and I know where to send people for an alignment.
It doesn't get much better than that!
Catch ya later,
