text messaging: There’s a Time to Text and a Time to Talk - 11/14/15 03:23 AM
There’s a Time to Text and a Time to Talk
No doubt communication has changed in recent years. There was a time when your choice was pretty much face to face or on the phone.
Then along came email, followed by smartphones and the advent of texting.
Like it or love it, texting is a popular of sharing information, connecting, asking questions, providing help, and so much more. For some it’s the way they want to communicate with others, whether it’s a friend, family member or their real estate agent.

Kids walk to and from school with them
There seem to be more drivers on their cell phones than not, and not using hands-free devices…illegal in many states, including CA
People stroll the aisles at the supermarket, chat in the library, walk on the beach and on side walks, ride bicycles and skateboards, and sit on the pot in public restrooms on the phone

I love learning new ways to be efficient - goodness knows I can certainly use the help - and not being efficient drives me nuts!
I do a lot of texting these days, far more than I was doing even a year ago. While some is with with family members the majority is with buyer and seller clients, and those dialogs are something I want to preserve, as I do all transaction emails, just in case.
