Good morning Noah. You have to have a 6th sense or you end up wasting a lot of time and energy working with someone that needs entertainment.

I thought I had a good intuition. But we do not know what is going on on our clients lives, and often some of their decision and/or suggestions come very unexpected.

When some thing is out of the ordinary that is a redflag. When you get more than 1 redtag, you go back ask the similar question differently. You do your own investigation to confirm your instinct.   

People are not what they were. Realtors are often stepping stone to get to place. Often people are working with multiple agents at same time.  You need to learn how to handle it.

Actually, I do. I learned a long, long time ago to trust my gut instincts and that any time I ignored them, I paid the price for doing so.

Don't even need to use the 6th sense. Usually, only 2 are needed.

It seems to be a standard practice for clients to be less than truthful. You just cope with the circumstances and lead them to a successful transaction.

I think my instincts are pretty good, but people are full of surprises. I probably get it right as often as I get it wrong. I need to work on improving that ratio.

Yes. My spidey sense goes beyond real estate, but it certainly helps here as well. Often you don't want to believe something is so, but your gut and sense tells you that it is (and it's usually right). I find that many people have a sense, but they just prefer to go with their hopes versus their gut feeling (which can lead to a big letdown).

Oh yes.  We turn down lots of listings and with buyers, I eventually just don't call them back.  6 months ago I actually blocked one persons e-mail.  I didn't care what he wanted to buy it just wasn't going to be through me.
