A huge THANKS to all agents that don’t answer the phone when it rings or feel the need to return calls the following day…or between the hours of blah blah. I appreciate the business that you send me – keep it up. Over the weekend I had two solid buyers and a renter tell me that they called two to four different agents looking for help and info – and I was the only one to pick up the phone. I referred the rental and have two new solid buyer clients.
Did the agent community not learn from the last several years? Did some of you miss the memo that we’re in an “instant gratification” world? That the net has a 24 hour open door policy? Yeah yeah – I hear the nonsense that “you need your family time….” sure you do. I see cell phones in restaurants, movies, cars, at kids sporting events, at the beach, on the slops even in the gym between sets and on treadmills. Is that “family time”? Is everyone that important? You’ll blab endlessly but can’t take a business call after 6? Or on the weekend? Really?
Last I checked, a successful agent understands their clientele….mine would like to at least know that I care to pick up the phone. If I’m away from the laptop I tell them and I’ll get back to them ASAP with what they want. In many cases, I can take a few minutes right on my phone or I-Pad and scratch their itch. Are you too important to do that? Facebook and words with friends getting in the way?
Do me a favor – keep it up. I promise not to call after 6 to thank you….I know you need that “family time”.
