I am soft-spoken. What does this mean for me? It means that I am often repeating myself. Other times it means that I am being asked to raise my voice above my level of comfort. It does, at times wear on me and not only my vocal chords. If I want to be heard, I need to take into consideration that this voice of mine is low key. Speak up or forever hold my peace. Sometimes I elect to hold my peace. I just don't want to raise my voice over the crowd.
As a Realtor getting noticed is a big part of our marketing. We generate all forms of media to be seen. We look for ways to distinguish ourselves in order that we gain the clients' business. Unlike the raising of one's voice, these ways of distinction should be a part of who we are as a person.
How do you get noticed? I am okay with being the person not heard over the crowd because I know in the end that things like respect, trust and loyalty win out with the clients.
