I frequently go to properties that have dogs and cats. I want them to check me out, smell my pants and determine for themselves that they can trust me. I've always wondered if they can tell that I have B/S dogs and what kind; however, I know they know to trust me. When I get HOME, it is a different story. Cici and Pico KNOW I have been with another animal and they are NOT be pleased
I received a gift certificate for Christmas for a mani/pedi from a shop that I don't use. The giver knows that I am HIGH MAINTENANCE by my nails and hair coloring and they thought out the gift THAT FAR.
I'll thank giver for the certificate and I'll REgift it to someone that I KNOW would not have a similar problem. If I went back to Rosie, my nail tech of 3+ years, she would take one look at my nails and toes and KNOW that I had been with another nail tech. The gift giver thought of me that far and no further.
I know when a client or would-be client has been talking to another property manager. They start telling me how "other property managers" do it and why I need to change my business practices.
I'm more than happy to explain my policies and procedures and how the licensing and landlord tenant laws impact my way of doing business. I am not willing to do something JUST because some other property manager may do something a different way....I trust my business practices...I'm NOT changing them NOW!
