Relationships – the why and how

A past boss of mine used to say “people buy from people”.  I believe this applies to all successful relationships, not just buying and selling. One of my strongest skills is building relationships with customers, co-workers, vendors, anyone with whom I come into contact.  This is where I find a large part of job satisfaction.  I love the feeling that I’m their “girl” or that I can call in a favor, if needed.  As a Produce Broker some customers would tell me the only reason they bought from me was because they liked and trusted me.  I have proven many times over that I can build trust not only in person with but over the phone.  The way I build good relationships is by being honest, communicating clearly, over delivering, being responsive and making that person feel like they are the only one I’m supporting.
