When I first got my real estate license in 1985 in Fairfield Ca, I scheduled 4 interviews for 1 day with the 4 brokers that I thought I might want to work for.
You know the old saying - Dress for the part you want to play!
So I went to the mall and bought the perfect Interview for a Real Estate Agent Dress, new not-too-high Real Estate Agent Heels, a small professional Real Estate Agent Purse, a new gold Real Estate Agent Pen, gold hoop Real Estate Agent Earrings, and a simple gold Real Estate Agent Necklace.
I had my long curly hair cut in a shoulder length layered Real Estate Agent Style.
I had my shiny new Real Estate Agent Briefcase with pens, pencils, paper, folders, breath fresheners, calculator, candy bars - all the things that would prove that I was a real estate agent ready to go to work.
Oh, yes, I carried the briefcase with me to the interviews - what professional real estate agent doesn’t carry a briefcase to be prepared at all times?
All 4 interviews went really well. All 4 brokers were obviously impressed by my poise and potential - how could they not be ? I knew I looked like a professional real estate agent.
I went home and set my Real Estate Agent Purse and my Real Estate Agent Briefcase on my dresser and decided to change clothes before dinner - I couldn’t risk spilling barbecue sauce on my new Real Estate Agent Dress.
As I stood before the mirror, I turned and looked again at the perfect real estate agent image just one more time.
The first thing I noticed was that I had forgotten to take the price tags off the Perfect Real Estate Agent Dress - they were all hanging down the back of my sleeve.
That red $19.99 sale tag really stood out!
