I'd think you've done all you can do at this point. Unless you drive by in a few weeks or even a month and see whoever he hired has done a horrible job; then you might have an in to see if he is open to giving you a chance...

How do you feel about this situation now? Do you feel you will continue to market to him in the future? Maybe sending him some mailers to check in and see if he could still use your services in a few weeks or a month? Or do you feel you are done with him?

I believe I will wait it out. If he decides to go with the other guy still, so be it. I just can't now for that low. The ball is in his court now, his play.

I think you handled it all well. Keep us posted if there is any change in the situation. Who knows, you might still hear from him again.

Definitely agree with Steve.

There have been several times I've made a bid on an account, and lost, but the property owner called me back weeks/months later to hire me. Usually a variety of different excuses, but the other guy didn't stand up to the challenge pretty much.
