As always, you’re excited to hear your business line ringing. You answer the phone with your professional greeting and, yes, it is someone interested in your home staging services!
After telling you a bit about the million dollar vacant home she needs staged within the month, the homeowner says she’s been to your website and already knows she would like you to do the job. But, she has already spoken with a couple of other stagers who have both offered to do the initial consultation for free.
She tells you that she saw what you charge for your home staging consultation on your website and says she’ll hire you if you waive your fee.
How do you handle this phone call?
I’ll explain what I would do in an upcoming post, but first I’d like to hear what you would do. Please leave your answer by commenting below.
