“Being Compared to a Hair Dresser a Compliment?”

“Being Compared to a Hair Dresser a Compliment?”




Letting your clients know that you are their go to person when they need a referral will continually create loyalty and more referrals.


This request was a bit different as Judy compared my importance to her hair dresser. I will take the compliment.


Hi Joe.

Thanks for all your help Joe. Besides my hair dresser you are the most important person we reach out to!! I have to consolidate Mikey's student loan. When we did the mortgage application you mentioned you had a contact, can you send me the info?

Oh yes, that is indeed a compliment.  Yes, you are a trusted advisor.

Hi Joe - sure that is a compliment.  Many people ask their hairdresser or barber for advice.

Absolutely, Joe.  This is indeed a great compliment when coming from some folks.

Good morning Joe,

It does pay to have contacts!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Top of the morning Joe.  In seeing the lady's comments they seem to understand the totem pole importance of a hair dresser than we might.  Kudos on your compliement and having it confirmed in AR.    Mark

Hi Joe... my hairdresser of almost 18 years is a very important person in my life! I totally admit it. There's hardly a day when if I'm out in public I don't get complimented on my hair and asked who does it.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage | Charlotte, NC) over 2 years ago

Hair dressers are trusted with much personal information, as are you. I get the comparison, and it's a flattering one.

Speaking of which, I need to make an appointment...What a great story, that you are so trusted.  We knew that!  Happy Thursday, A

Hi Joe -- it looks like many of the comments show that being compared to a hairdresser is the ultimate compliment.   I wonder what the hairdresser might think of being compared to a mortgage professional....hmm.    Maybe it's time for you two to meet.

I've been compared to all kinds of things and all sorts of people; it makes no difference as long as the client is happy. I guess you could answer the phone next time she calls: Hello, this is Joe the hairdresser.

Teri does my hair and I love her to death. You really need to take this as a compliment. 

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) over 2 years ago

I agree with Judy- there is no question that a bad hair day can completely change your perspective on the day so yes, you have definitely been given a very elevated position!

Posted by Joanna Cohlan, Designing, Decorating & Staging Westchester Homes (Fresh Eyes For Your Home) over 2 years ago


In this case being compared to the hairdresser is a compliment as being their go to person.

Good luck and success.

Yes that is a special spot you hold in people's lives. The hairdresser knows everything just like you do Joe.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 2 years ago

Joe good job.  I have been compared to a lot of things but never a hair dresser.

Thanks, Joe, for sharing this story. It is good to see that you are seen in a positive light.

Yes Joe, Judy knows what we all know, that you are a very important person and well liked by all you meet.
