I closed a deal last week where the other agent was in his mid 20's, and at closing he showed up to closing in a suit and tie.   He looked sharp.   I joked that I felt underdressed (I didn't really) and asked him how often we wore a suit and tie.     "Every day!  You have to look the part!  You h...

A few months ago I was working with a young first time home buyer.  He was a really fun client to work with.  He was appreciative of my time, my efforts, and my knowledge. Or so I thought.
