As a luxury real estate marketing professional do you show up on time to your appointments? Do you value clients who are punctual?
From our perspective, punctuality is a sign of self-respect and respect for others. According to King Louis XVIII, “Punctuality is the politeness of kings”. Kings do not have to be punctual. A true royal treats his and her subjects with respect.
In contrast, a prima donna is a very temperamental person with an inflated view of his or her own talent or importance. To be late is a form of manipulation and a sign of disrespect.
Alexandra had an interesting experience at her very first appointment as a commercial real estate broker. Her client, a famous international artist, commented that he was impressed that she actually returned his calls promptly and was surprised that she showed up on time to show him property.
If you have high self-respect you do not want to be kept waiting by anyone; you expect professionalism. It is only someone with low self-respect who puts up with habitual lateness.
Treat your clients as if they are Royals and you will become a Royal yourself! It is a good habit to cultivate.
