Crazy Shit In Real Estate

Summary:

Sticks and stones may break bones…but they won’t stop a good realtor from taking a call from a client! Kellie Tinnen, Training Administrator for the Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors, shares the story of when her friend was –literally– beat with a stick by an unruly child. Now that Kellie does broker outreach and in-office trainings, she teaches new brokers how to treat clients, other brokers and property (hint: beatings NOT included), and ensures they’re up-to-speed on association happenings and updates.
