This was back in an era before centralized showing services came into existance. I made the appointment to show by calling the listing office. "Ring Ring", "Hello ABC Realty? I'd like to show your listing at 1313 Mockingbird Lane this afternoon at 4:00 PM, Can I do that" The duty agent responds: "We'd love for you to show 1313 MockingBird at 4, let me set it up for you, please hold while I … (17 comments)
