Harry is a 20-something young man with a plan.
He has been planning for his first home for several years.
He wants to buy a duplex; he is going to live in one side and rent the other side.
He has a solid job and excellent credit.
He called my preferred lender the same day I gave him the number and was easily approved for way more than he plans to spend.
He has saved some money for a down payment, but really wanted to put more down, so I told him about the down payment assistance program in the city of Atlanta. He immediately did the research to find a lender that is participating. He applied for the program, then scheduled himself to attend the home buyers' class, which is this Saturday.
We met in person for the first time today and he was well-prepared with questions and possible properties.
He listens well and is not afraid to ask questions. He has done a lot of reading and self-education, but he is well aware that there is a lot he does not know.He values my experience and ideas.
This is going to be fun!
A dream client would know what they don't know.
A dream client would need me for exclusive, fiduciary brokerage.
The most important thing for a client to be prepared to do during the buying or selling process is to act forthrightly and with determination.
