Our very first property management client asked me what my opinion was of leasing her property to a single parent family… I will admit that I did pause for a minute!
Clearly my answer here could loose me my first client… but in true Peggy fashion I went with the honest answer regardless of the expected outcome.
My response: “the best tenant I have ever had in my investment property was a single gentlemen on a disability pension”… “As long as they appear to be good people and all of my background check come back looking good then I have no problem at all in leasing a property to a single parent family”.
Now, I was definitely NOT expecting the response I received… she smiled and responded with “that’s great to hear, they have a hard enough time as it is”.
What a great start! My very first client in my new business was in fact my “ideal client”.
This is why I have invested everything I have in to starting my own agency; so that I have a business that I am proud of and where my morals can be the foundation for all of our actions without fear of retribution.
