At our company, the receptionist is off on the weekends and there are two agents assigned to floor duty at a time. On Saturdays there are two shifts, from 8:30-1 and from 1-5:30 and I prefer the earlier shift (which is good for me because I ended up with it two Saturdays in a row this month). Last Saturday it was quiet but there were more people in and out, but this weekend it's nearly dead. Halfway into our shift we have only had two calls and they have both been commercial calls which has its own agent on duty.
I don't mind it being quiet because I can catch up on my ActiveRain and e-mails and check MLS for any hot new listings or price changes to send to clients, but the time goes much quicker and it's also nice to hear the phone ringing and see people in and out of the office more - both agents and clients. So more activity would be preferable but I have heard from other agents that the holidays are usually a very quiet time for real estate.
Ok, so January 1st, I expect to see a stampede!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday!
