Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: July 2014

Candidness is Almost Always Appreciated in Sacramento Real Estate

Even if I'm not always 100% correct at least I have conviction and am candid. You can't say that about every person one runs into in Sacramento real estate. I've been struggling with a certain situation that has been rather difficult for weeks, and when I spoke to the person responsible for much of my troubles yesterday she pointed out how much she likes talking to me and how she can't wait until she's ready to buy a home next spring through me.

That's due to practiced diplomacy. There's a difference between being diplomatic and candid. She doesn't see how she drives me nuts because it doesn't really matter in the overall scheme of things, and I don't care to pound her over the head with it. I care to get the transaction closed. You can read more in my personal blog today about how candidness and being direct is sometimes a better way to go about it: The California Motto is Dude I Flaked.
