Business Cards JUST for Showings. Phone-less

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Northern Virginia Homes - FRANKLY REAL ESTATE Inc

This tip will save you 100 minutes in no time! 

Some of you might not mind this, but after showing 10-20 homes, I suddenly get a flurry of calls. "What did you think about the place." Sometimes 20 calls because the agent will try a couple of times to reach me.

First of all, I have no memory. So they try to explain that there house was the one on the corner near the lilac bushes. As I noticed the bushes.

So I made a new batch of business cards that say to email me for feedback and to include photos or a link to the property. I put the phone number is a VERY light gray in case they really really need to call me. The card  

 

It works great. Fewer calls, more feedback given, everyone is happy.

I can go out and show 50 houses and not get a single request for feedback... and then show two and have 30 calls... go figure.  But our MLS has live showing data, so I can get an email or phone call before I can get home.  Heck... it is more convenient to email from the message, but some agents seem to be computer averse.

Great idea! I did show 40 houses in couple of days last week and they all meshed together. I was swamped with calls while I was still showing property.  Thanks

Sounds like a good idea.  Email would be easier.  After  so many houses they are hard to remember which one.
