I don't think people do as much as they did in the 80's. I've had the luxury vehicles and I now go for quirky cars. I've found I'm not thought to make TOO much money and neither do people presume I don't make ENOUGH.
My vehicles are talking points now and I find people will often wave to me almost like I'm leading a parade!
I am sure some do. There are all types of people out there.

Yes, it happens.

Michael Thornton I don't think so anymore. All the cars on the road look similar today whether new or older models.
Absolutely...they judge your vehicle in the same manner that they judge your looks and the way you speak.
Hope not - I am going to resist the temptation to fall prey to this --- my success has surpassed the look of my wheels at this point -- I am now rather proud of that.
to an extent I think so -
My 7 year old Toyota and I hope not :)
I do not care what they think about my car( prius, btw) or my watch( I never had one), my presentation~ is the key what makes them decide if they want to work with me or with someone else who drives a better car.
I wouldnt say all but there are some for sure that judge by what others drive, where they live, what they wear etc.
Michael - I am sure there are those that do judge a book by it's cover, and an agent by the car they drive. However, I know a lot of very rich people who drive average cars (no BMW's or Mercedes). Not all rich people like to spend their money on cars, jewelry, clothing, etc. I would never judge.
I think they do to some extent. I used to drive a eleven year old Ford Explorer and it was fine with me, but it became clear it was hurting me.
I went out and bought a two year old Lexus sedan and people seem to be happy with that. I'll drive it as long as I can get away with it.
Oh, yes! And in these parts, hybrids seem to score points.
Some people do this. I don't. I actually had a new buyer that questioned why I wasn't driving a Lexus SUV with all leather interior. I told him I liked my Subaru just fine.
Some people may Michael, remember you can't judge a boook by it's cover......
I think that is more in the eyes of the driver unless you are dealing with luxury properties. Then I think a clean car matters more than the make or model.
To some extent they do. People always seem to be judging others instead of looking in the mirror.
Unfortunately it is what some people think, you are as successful as what you drive Michael Thornton
Yes they do but not as much as in the 90's.
Absolutely. Would you rather buy a property from a guy with a Rolex or a Timex?
Working real estate and a ranch gives me little option on having a nice car. I have two trucks and if one is in the shop the other is the vehicle I use, both have a few dings and I know people do judge but I don't think that is what makes an agent being good at your job matters more.
Hi Mike, unfortunately, I think most people would.
It can be telling - quality may reflect success and condition may reflect modus operandi.
Michael Thornton well, I drive Prius - a Toyota hybrid and I don't think I look at it that way...
Some do. What you drive, Where you live. What you wear. The color of your hair.
The type of vehicle, clothes, posture, speech, actions and opinions. Yes
