How late is too late to call?

By
Real Estate Broker with Windermere Peninsula Properties

I do not call my clients before 9am or after 7pm. But that does not seem to be everybodies cut off time. I have even had agents phone me after 9 at night. Does this seem unusual to you, or am I a little rigid.After hours I let my cell phone go to voice mail, but I can not help but look to see who's number it is and wonder what they might want. How do you deal?

Hi Dinah, I know it's a decision. I have found, if I am in the middle of a transaction, it may be very important to take or make a call. I try to keep it between 9am to 9pm, proper protocal wise.

I will email late, but I do not like to call people late, and it's unusual for me to take a late phone call.

I have a bad habit of answering the phone everytime it rings. Good or bad I don't know, but I just seem to jump at every opportunity that could come my way!!!!!

I think it depends on the client.  By meeting them you can usually get a feel of what they are like and if they would be open to early morning/late night phone calls.  If you're not sure...just ask!

I find that most people don't like being bothered about anything having to do with real estate, unless they are in contract, after about 8:30pm. As far as my availability, I will always answer calls, texts or emails if I am not preoccuppied. Call me a workaholic, but it gets the job done and I have built a solid reputation based off of extraordinary communication between my clients and I either day or night.
