AGENT GATEKEEPERS - Answer the Phone!

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. Assc Broker MD DC VA

Just a little vent about agents who can't return a phone call or answer there phone.   I coincidentally have three properties that I wanted to show today.   All of them have show instructions that require you to have contact with the agent.  Only one agent can manage to answer his telephone and schedule the appointment.   

My buyer can't understand why we can't get in on a weekend with TWO days notice.   Frankly, neither can I!

When hiring an agent - make sure they answer their phone and call back promptly - or it is not just you who is suffering from a lack service.   Buyers only buy homes they can see!!!

Tip for agents who can't answer their phone because they are "busy" or otherwise engaged - get a partner; hire an assistant; use a showing service; let the agents make showing arrangements with the seller.

Hi Yvette,

Call us - we want to show The Schuman Team listings :) Nothing is worse than trying to schedule a tour and getting no answers!

Have a great day,
