Avoid the inappropriate use of endearments or other denigrating language. While you may be the type of person who likes to call individuals “hun” or “sweetie”, it is best to reserve that jargon for relatives and close friends. A new client might not appreciate, or be comfortable with, the use of that language. When dealing with clients, and other real estate professionals, it is best to remain professional at all times.
