I received a phone call, midafternoon, from a new agent. She was sitting an open house, and her voice sounded a touch shakey.
She said she was just calling to run some numbers with me... "Are you at your open house?", I asked.
"Yes", she said "Yes, that's right".. something hollow in her voice.
"Is someone there that's making you feel uncomfortable... someone giving you that creepy vibe?"
She said "Hold on"... and I hear: her say "I'll be with you in just a moment, sir"... then to me "Yes....that's right"
"I'll be right there... stay on the phone... while I get there... I'm about 5 minutes away".
While we continued to talk... about contracts, and lines 33, 34, and 35... no idea what we were talking about... I got there, and everything was fine. He had left.
But while he was there, she got that "creepy" vibe. A sole young woman, alone in a strange house, with an even stranger man who was asking somewhat inappropriate personal questions.
She was clearly a bit shaken... a strong woman, taken by surprise by her vulnurability... and apologized for calling me.
Not even close. She did exactly the right thing. I'd rather show up, for no reason... trust your gut. When your spidey sense is tingling... there's a reason. Don't ignore your spidey sense.
