Hairy Hands


Thought of the Week

When presenting “Negotiation Concepts applied to Real Estate Transactions” I use the example of a hairy hand as a diversion from the real issues.

Maybe Melania Trump’s speech plagiarism is a “hairy hand” for the media to talk about to distract from the real issues being decided at the republican convention.

If you want to learn more negotiating tactics you should attend my next negotiations class on Oct 11th at the Miami Realtor’s Headquarters.
