Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Cell Phone Test

By
Real Estate Agent with CENTURY 21 Real Estate Center, Inc., Laramie, Wyoming

Frog answering phone

With so much talk about who will be the best agent for you, I'd like to suggest a quick and simple test:

Call an agent on his or her cell phone . . .

Did they answer?

If they don't answer, it's okay!  They may be conversing with an actual human being at the time of your call - and we all know that it is rude to ignore the person in front of you to dive for your phone.

However, leave a message then get on with your day while you wait for a return call.

You should find that the agent will return your call within a reasonable amount of time at their next opportunity.

After all, even the greatest agent in the world won't do you much good if you can never get a hold of them!

Hi Brenda~ Love your "frog" series of blog posts!  I see you've joined my group too!  Thanks!  I believe the cell phone test is a great way to make a decision about which agent to work with.  The way they respond will be very telling.

Brenda...I'd have to give you an Amen Sister on this one!  Drives me crazy when people don't return my phone calls.  One of the reasons I choose who I do business with is because of the timely fashion in which they return calls.

Hi Donna - Yes, I think the group is awesome and will really give me a focus on writing the informative articles I've always thought about writing for clients but never did! 

Hi Kim - I know we have ended up with some excellent providers in other fields simply because they answered or got back to us when they could.  My husband goes as far as calling the numbers back on his caller ID whether they leave a message or not.  Guess he knows how much some poeple hate to leave messages! ;-)

Brenda,

Great idea; however, I'm on the road a lot and if traffic is too heavy I wait until I can pull over but sometimes, depending on traffic it takes longer than I want. I always call as soon as it's safe and when it isn't rude to another person.

Hi Patricia,  Well, I do think that's the idea, that sometimes you just CAN'T or SHOULDN'T answer, so a person shouldn't judge soley on that.  They should leave a message and see if you'll return their call.
