  1. Tucker,

    Straight to the core of the matter with no fluff. Great content.

    When you meet your sellers for the first time, do you have any particular strategies that aid in getting them to open up and tell their story?

    It sounds like being a good listener and being genuine are some of your core competencies. Just wondering if you have any go-to leading questions in your quiver?

      Just be yourself, ask them nicely what their situation is or allow the conversation to lead them there. More times than not they are more than willing to explain their situation and why they are considering selling to you.
