Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


I’m not a drive-thru, I’m more like a sit down restaurant (Join me won’t you)

There are many fine restaurants out there and don’t get me wrong I love Sonic, Jack-in-the-Box, Burger King and most of the fast food restaurants. But, these places are more known for having a drive-thru, they have limited menus and you can get in and out quickly.

Drive Thru Reak Estate

I like to think of myself more as a full service restaurant, where I specialize in one type of food, but still have a full menu to offer you. My menu is designed for families. I help families find homes, that is my business model. I’m not going to get you your food in less than a minute and never see or talk to you again.

I want to you to come in, feel comfortable and get to know you by name and hope you come back and refer your friends because you liked my service and what I had to offer. I’m here for the long haul and have lots to offer. So come on in, I’ll pull out the chair for you and give the menu showing you many of the new homes we have on it and even give you what I consider to be the specials of the week.

Give me call today and let me show you why using a drive thru agent may not be the way to go.

Love the post Todd! And now I'm hungry. Funny, those of us in a "service" industry find ourselves adding to our "menu" to be successful.

Wonderful analogy and makes a nice counterpoint to the agents who believe they can serve anyone, anywhere, anytime. BTW, I enjoyed your webinar. Thanks for sharing your model and how well it works for you your family and your clients.

I'd like a toss salad, the prime rib a large end cut and a baked patatoe. (If it's good enough for Dan Quail who an I to take the "e" out?)

For desert I'd like a duplex with a tenant on the side.

Finally! A realtor who isn't comparing themselves to a doctor! Now stop eating and get to work!

Simple, yet effective. Why didn't I think of this? I like it.

Like you Todd, I love the analogy and am of the 'take your time, sit a while and have dessert' variety of real estate agent. Not a drive-thru, lickedy split type at all!

Hi Todd... a lot of agents want to be "drive thru" agents because they think it's easier.  To that I say "Nothing worth doing is ever easy!"

Full service is a lot more work, and we have to do the dishes, but don't we sleep well at night?

Having spent many years in the Restaurant Business, I can relate to this post! I am most certainly a full service restaurant!

Hi Todd,

You must be still on vacation!

Good way to use a restaurant as a description of your business model

Wow Todd..suggested...this is a great way to promote oneself in an ad or newsletter and thank you for sharing this with us because with so many part time agents in my area (that won't own up to it), I need to stress how i'm the 9 course restaurant that takes you from soup to nuts!!

Love the analogy!

Some of us act like drive through restaurants hoping to capture those looking for instant gratification. These people tend to come and go as they please...
