‘You ate my head’
Let me tell you the story.
One of my clients just received an offer on their home after being listed just a short while. We were signing the paperwork and chatting about what they thought about the process and after we were done I asked them if they were happy with the result. You see, they tried to sell their home privately and were not getting the results they were looking for. I was referred to them by a colleague, and I’m so happy that we met.
Yes, they said yes they were happy with receiving a good offer. They then shared with me that they were not very interested in meeting with me in the beginning, but once we met and discussed my strategy for selling their home they changed their minds. The husband tried to explain to me what won them over. After I outlined what I would do for them to help sell their home, his thought was ‘you ate my head’, which is the English translation of a saying in their language. It means you know exactly what I am thinking! To me that was a funny expression but I took as it was meant to be taken: as a true compliment.
These clients were wonderful to work with and I have learned from them and their culture. It was a great experience for all of us.
