Agent: winning clients is like picking up people at the bar

Earning clients is similar to meeting people at the bar, argues one agent who is currently working on his first book: You can either have a transactional relationship or one that’s built on trust

    Ask the girl at the bar "Who are you? Talk to me, tell me about yourself (with sincerity otherwise move on)". And then LISTEN.

    Ask a girl if she wants to come home with you. O.K.
    I think you need a better analogy for real estate.

    offer a girl a drink is your "value proposition" and then ask her to come home with you? And you call that a transaction? I won't be reading that book!

    "winning clients is like picking up people at the bar" - sounds like this agent knows what he's talking about - must be pick-up-girls-at-the-bar
    artist, so could not come up with any better comparison. The woman, that sells sex and is looking to pick-up clients could have come up with a similar comparison, while sharing her achieved wisdom through her experiences - she's a business person as well.
    The point is : this sounds low and unprofessional for a RE Agent to compare this way.
    Would not be interested in reading his book or would not want to be his client, even if a good discount was offered.

    This is the Buffini strategy - building relationships... Not a new concept...
