Here in our part of the real estate world, life has been pretty slow. After the tax credit expired, things came to a grinding halt, for all practical purposes. And to add insult to injury, Rural Development money ran out. This is a loan program for rural areas like Owasso. Rural Development mortgages require no PMI, so they're a preferred program for many buyers.
In the midst of this slowdown, like many others, my company has been re-organizing and downsizing. There have been cutbacks and some layoffs. Work has been shifted to managers and other company employees. One of the exciting changes has been a restructuring of the incoming calls system. Where the phone used to not ring much, now it rings alot. That's good in a slowdown!
In the past, I gave up doing "floor duty" because it just wasn't worth it. No phone calls and rarely a walk-in. I had way more effective ways to reach people (can you say Active Rain blogging and social media?!).
Today the deal is that any associate can sign up to take inbound calls. When a call comes in, there are two offices on duty with two people. Whoever grabs the call first gets it. If the client wants to check out a house, you're in business! There have been some social media changes that have caused the phone to ring, but I won't go into those things here.
And it works. Thursday morning I was on floor duty when a call came in from a lady who was interested in a house. That evening I was showing the house and today we'll be writing an offer on it. In a real estate slowdown, that's good stuff!
The only problem with this new system is that the company is having a hard time finding associates to answer the phone sometimes. Maybe other associates are too proud or maybe they're busier than I am. Whatever the case, they're missing opportunity.
And somedays, even in a real estate slowdown, opportunity comes knocking (or calling!)
