A story of how a new real estate agent showed an experienced Boston real estate broker a new approach
Once upon a time, there was this experienced Beacon Hill real estate broker who was having a hard time selling a Boston condo for sale listing that she had. She was dumbfounded why the Boston real estate listing wasn’t selling.
A new Boston real estate agent, seeing that her boss was frustrated reluctantly suggested to the real estate broker perhaps she should try a different approach to solving her problem, needless to say, a few days later the property went under agreement.
I’m reminded of this old fable:
A grandfather was trying to read the newspaper, but his little grandson kept pestering him. Finally, the father grew tired of this and, tearing a page from the newspaper – one that bore a map of the world – he cut it into several pieces and handed them to his son.
‘Right, now you’ve got something to do. I’ve given you a map of the world and I want to see if you can put it back together correctly.’
He resumed his reading, knowing that the task would keep the child occupied for the rest of the day. However, a quarter of an hour later, the boy returned with the map.
‘Has your mother been teaching you geography?’ asked his father in astonishment.
‘I don’t even know what that is,’ replied the boy. ‘But there was a photo of a man on the other side of the page, so I put the man back together and found I’d put the world back together too.’
