I heard back from yesterday’s feisty client. Seems there was even more to the story, and his wife urged him to share (she reads this blog, and is kind of pissed at him).
The seller dropped all attempts at civility and started to verbally spar with the buyer in the foyer. However, his bluest fighting words were thrown as the fast retreating buyer was in the driveway.
The next potential buyer with an appointment pulled up just as the trash talk reached its crescendo. And, I’m told, this potential buyer left a lot faster than he arrived.
