I'm not the only one in DC that does this kind of work. Word gets around. You learn what is expected by the client which is usually driven by the location. I work a certain type of area an income level. The lower the market value of house, the more blunt the methods and people. I'm a niche player just like the marketing people suggest. It's easier and it fits me. That's probably how I ended up doing this. It didn't require any change on my part. I don't change who I am to please other people. That's one of my rules.
It may be conceit on my part but I like to think I am one of the classier players in my market. It helps to bring in the clients. I'm a Mover in what was the 700,000 to 1.5 million range of houses. What is classier? In my case it means I look like someone who bought a house in that price range and neighborhood. I don't look like I fell off the stage or out of a video. No tat's, piercings, and the hair is kept corporate/military short and clean. My ride fits the area's I work, usually a Lexus, or if I am going nondescript -- a BMW. I dress corporate casual. Usually I have a phone clipped to my belt and a bogus but authentic looking corporate plastic ID hung on it to.
That doesn't sound very intimidating does it? That's because I am not standing in front of you and focusing my attention exclusively on you. You see I know I am insane and it does not take much effort on my part to convey that to others. I call it dropping the mask. It's one of the reasons I wear sunglasses a lot. They help to keep the mask in place.
Usually I stay in my head and LOOK. You see I know the End Times are here and I am glad. Very glad indeed. I have a personal mission. I LOOK and I wait. I am not sure what it is but I know I will recognize it just as it will recognize me. I am so very, very angry about what has happened. I try not to think about what makes me angry because just doing it makes me even angrier. Scary angry. Non functioning angry. Stupid angry. One thing I am not is stupid. Not anymore. I am going to hurt them. Yes I am.
