Imagine my surprise to receive the following reply to my emailed request for showing instructions...
I apologize for this automatic reply to your email.
To control spam, I now allow incoming messages only from senders I have approved beforehand.
If you would like to be added to my list of approved senders, please fill out the short request form (see link below). Once I approve you,....
The message went on to state the benefits of me completing the form and assured me I would only have to do this once.
Somewhat stunned, I decided that once was too often to deal with this foolishness. So, I called first thing in the morning. No one answered. Perhaps he also has a pre-approved call list?? Regardless, I left a message and finished scheduling appointments.
Try This Before Selecting An Agent
If you are a prospective home buyer or seller, contact your real estate agent a couple of times before deciding to work with him or her. Make sure they answer or reply in a reasonable amount of time. You most likely have questions anyway. Use this as an opportunity to kill 2 birds with one stone.
Of course agents have closings, showings, training, and personal lives that may prevent us from answering the phone or responding immediately. If you do not receive a response in a couple of hours be nervous, in 4 hours be skeptical, until the next day be fearful. If it happens more than once, put down the phone and back away slowly. Actually, run as fast as you can in the other direction.
If you are looking for a Louisville real estate agent who will answer and/or return your calls, texts, and emails, contact me immediately.
