Client: When my parents come with us for property inspections, can you do me... a favour? Please tell them that you’re my friend, instead of a buyer advocate ok?
Erick: Oh? Do you want me to wear plainclothes and not my suit then?
Client: That’s even better! I’ll hire you as my consultant but you know, they’re typical old school stingy Asian parents, they won’t approve of me paying for professional buying advice. They think we can do it well all on our own. But to be honest, we definitely don’t know enough about Melbourne’s property market like you do.
It’s incredible that this client of mine go all out to save for months just so he has enough savings to factor in my consultant fees, and then go all out to hide it from his parents so they won’t be able to stop him from engaging me. Just incredible.
