Values, What’s Important To Us?

I hesitate to make statements about values because in the end, it’s all about actions, words are cheap.  However, given the need to build trust with prospective buyers and sellers within a relatively short period of time, here goes!

  • Transparency – Simply put, the more we share and earlier in the process the better.  This allows either party to “exit” early and goes a long way toward ensuring that once the deal is done, all parties feel they’ve won!
  • Keep Commitments – I’m maniacal about keeping commitments.  From being on time for a meeting to delivering documents when and where as promised, I do what I say I’m going to do.  If something changes, I’ll de-commit and leave of time for the other party keep their commitments.
  • Make Decisions   I make decisions and take action.  There are times where both parties can agree to slow things down, that’s fine.  We should never “hide out” or stall to gain a (theoretical) advantage.
  • Win-Win –  I love repeat business!  The single most important key to “going again” is that both parties feel they gained once the deal is done, it’s a true win-win transaction!
  • Accountability – If people don’t keep their end of the bargain I let ’em know.  Either party can and should challenge the other to “step-up” and keep their commitments!

I want to do business with people whose values are aligned with my own, especially at my age.  If I sound like the kind of person you’d like to do business with, please give me a call!
