A client now working with me tells the story of viewing property with another agent some time ago when they pulled up to a listing. “Is that the Merritt Parkway?” asks the buyer. “Oh, I don’t think so,”says the highly-trained professional. “We’re nowhere close to it.”
“So what is that traffic I see through the woods, going 60 Miles per hour?’
The realtor pauses, screwing her pretty face into a thoughtful expression and then says, “you know what I love about houses near the Merritt? The traffic noise becomes just like a babbling brook after a little while.”
As I said, that buyer now works with me. Hell, I just pass out ear plugs and tell my people they should be grateful to be in Greenwich. Works every time.
