People can hear if you are smiling or not

    Not like smelling the phone ring or hearing the color red – that would be a real bad acid trip. And I know “acid”, not because of personal use – but because I was a Drug Recognition Expert Instructor with the Los Angeles Police Department, during my full time service. We encountered many a individual that were under the influence of this very potent drug “LSD”.

    Have you ever recorded your voice without smiling? Then hook up again to your recording device and record the same words while you have a smile on your face. When you playback each snippet of words, you will quickly find out that the one done while your were smiling was totally different.

    That should be reason enough for you to train yourself and your employees to smile while speaking on the phone.

    Give it a try next time you answer the phone. I am confident you will want to start telling everyone and talking to everyone with a smile on your face. It does wonders for your own self confidence, not to mention gives positives to the vibes coming from those whom you are interacting with.

    When someone calls our Real Estate team, I may not get another chance to give the best impression possible. The only way to ensure I am placing my best foot forward is to answer the phone while smiling. As if the cameras are recording and I am live in front of a Studio Audience.

    My Dad taught me a long time ago, he said if I were to help enough people get what they wanted, I’d never have to want for business, friends, and associates. Let me know if I can help you. BE Safe.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA.
