Conversation & The Real Estate Investor
One key that makes investors is conversation or should I say "The Art Of Conversation".
All successful investors are skilled in conversation and I'm not talking about the investors that does 10, 20 or even 30 deal a year! I'm talking about the "BTO" Big Time Operator; The Big Dog's slamming down 100 or more deals every year.
This is no discredit to any that do not fall in the arena with the "Big Dog's", but if you want to play with the "Big Boy's" you must master the art of conversation!
Have you every wondered why you have not been able to get to the next level in your investing carrier it's simply in your conversation as most professionals in real estate investing rise simply from respect from others. You need to develop this skill so that you can converse with any type of homeowner in any type of situation.
How do you improve this skill?

Improve your self-confidence - By expressing your views, thoughts and all conversation in a positive and non- threatening manner.
Express your self openly, direct but at all times in a positive manner!

When a person speaks, assume what they are saying is what they mean.
Improve your image - By proper grooming and dress. If you want to be an investor dress and act the part and you will become the part.
Learn the art of small talk, look at your surroundings find something of interest and engage your customer into a conversation about it for a short period and move on to your purpose as a investor "To acquire real estate".
At this point, you need to keep in control of the conversation and not allow it to fall back to the "small talk" or you will loose your position and purpose of being there. In addition, continue to look for the opportunity to close the deal.
