Nothing annoys me more (that may be an exaggeration) than an agent who has their cell phone plastered all over the universe and then becomes annoyed when you call them at an inconvenient time.
This past Saturday I was preparing for a client who would be in town on Sunday. As is my practice I called the listing agents to learn the status of his/her listing.
Unbelievable Call #1
Agent answered the cell phone and says, "I can't talk - I'm at my niece's wedding" and abruptly hung up.
The remainder of my calls went just fine until the last one late in the afternoon about 5:00 PM
Unbelievable Call #2
Agent answered the phone and said, "We are with out-of-town-friends. Call my home, leave a voice mail message and I'll call you tomorrow." and hung up. I wonder if these two agents are related to each other
Folks, I'm just a farmer's daughter who earned her degree at a small girl's college in Oklahoma,but even I know
- Cell phones have an off button going way back to the time when I had a Motorola brick
- If you don't want calls 24/7 don't plaster the number all over the world
It's downright discourteous to answer the phone at your niece's wedding
BTW - that small girl's college may not have been Ivy League, but the campus was close to the main gate of Fort Sill - the cultural exchange opportunities were excellent. :)
