    Re: Lost business because of my car...

    im going to school to be in the real estate field and my cousin told me that i should get another car like a 4dr sedan and leave it bone stock, right now i have a 03 escalade w/22's and he said a lot of people will judge you by what you drive and a car w/rims doesnt have the 'grown man' look.

    Re: Lost business because of my car...

    I get the same thing that CaddyKidd gets. I am young also and so people assume one of two things...either somebody died and left me a bunch of money that i just blew on a vehicle or i am selling drugs.

    Different things appeal to different people.

    I also agree with DLE. It would be different if you pulled up in an Escalade that was lowered with a crazy paint job and the speakers bumping. But if it is a "clean" looking vehicle with nice wheels to set it off...there SHOULDNT be anything wrong with that.

    I think it might stem from a little bit of jealousy. Or it might be that they think since you drive that kind of vehicle...you are in the business of ripping people off and taking them for everything you can get.

    just my humble opinion.

In a way I'm kinda glad i'm not selling their house because if they are this anal now... imagine after i start working for them. So mad!!!!
    I'm in sales,and any good salesman knows that you should try to be everything to your customers. If a certain image is required to make the most dollars per hour then do that. You can be "youself" all the way to the bank.

    To be honest, the Escalade is more for small business owner, actors, that people work for themself. If I were in real estate business, i'd drive bmw and MB.

    When my company bought my escalade they told me I had to lose the 24's to create a more professional look... so i got some less flashy looking 22's and they were fine with that!

    Re: Lost business because of my car...

    This is a interesting topic but I think the image is changing I see alot of old people with rims on their rides now. I can see to some it might be intimidating but to me if I was selling my crib and you rolled up in a Escalade on dubs, I would be happy, cause I know this guy will work hard for me to keep those rims on his ride. It show me that your successful in what you do and that your damn good 2.

    If I were selling real estate to the general public, I wouldn't show up in an Escalade, or any truck for that matter, with 24 inch rims.. I also wouldn't show up with rings on every finger, big, thick gold chains and a rolex. I'd rather they felt comfortable with me as a down-to-earth person just like them.

    But that's just me...

    If I was selling MY crib and you rolled up on an Escalade on dubs, i'd ask you nicely if I can take it for a spin.

    I think anyone here who refers to a "crib" as their home would be delighted to have a real estate agent with 45 inch rims. However, those who only know of a crib being something you put a baby in would feel otherwise.

    Just because someone drives a Escalade or uses words like crib to describe a house doesn't mean that they are not successful in their career and I think it shows more personality and a innovative way of thinking than the same old good ol boys club philosophy. I know it's intimidating to some but adding personality and describe it as unprofessional is a little prejudice I think. Also just having a little fun on the forum thats all.
