Dressing Appropriately Might Mean Wearing Orange!

Dressing Appropriately Might Mean Wearing Orange!

Al of us in this business, as in any business, want to look our best and put the best foot forward especially for a meeting with a client.  hunting, shooting, appropriate attire

Dressing professionally in different instances might mean different things.   For example when you go into a Doctor's office you likely expect to see the employees in a different attire than those at your attorney's office.    For many in the real estate profession, we seem to have become more casual than when I first started 25 years ago.   Back then, it was a business suit and heels with briefcase.   Today, probably because of my age, it is slacks and flats and an I Pad tucked into a shoulder bag.

For years, I have kept a pair of boots and rain gear in the back of my car.   Hat and gloves too.   I sometimes have thrown a spare pair in if I thought I might be taking a client to a place that we would need some more stable footwear.   One  never knows when you might find your self on a new construction site, and if there is one thing that drives me nuts, it is the ridiculously dressed Realtor trying to walk around in heels, or not wanting to get out of the car, because of a little dirt or mud.   

Clearly I like to think I am prepared, but on this day, not so much.    After being contacted by a person for a price opinion on a large parcel of land, we needed to get out there and check it out.   Sure Google maps and earth are great tools these days, but there is nothing like getting out there to see what you are really looking at.    Seeing a beautiful parcel of land, and imagining how it might be developed is pretty exciting.    Walking it.  Listening, and getting the feel of the place helps to imagine type of homes will be best built there.     Really no different that looking at a single family home that might possibly be a new listing.   We walk around, inside and out to know what we have.    

No different really, but did you remember it is hunting season?   


Dressing appropriately might have meant wearing orange!
