No Excuse to Not Communicate!

By
Real Estate Agent with The Landry Team-Keller Williams Realty

In the high tech world we live in and enjoy today it is quite easy to get in contact with those we need as we have many options available to us now.  Growing up we did not have cell phones (unless you were a rich executive who "needed" one) so if you wanted to get a hold of someone you had to wait until they were near a landline phone at the same time that you were next to one.   Email was virtually non-existent and the internet was just in its infant years. 

Now that most everyone (and their kids) have cell phones and email accounts it's easy and fast to communicate and get a hold of whoever it is you need to speak with.  I have found that my buyers all have their preference as to how they like to be communicated with.  Some want email, some want the traditional phone calls, and others are text"ers" .  Now, I'll even run into people who communicate through sites like Facebook and Twitter! 

The most important thing to remember when working with a professional or customer is to establish at the beginning of that business relationship what their preferred method of contact is.  Set this up from the get go, and you should have a smooth and highly communicating relationship resulting in a great transaction and growing referral business.

This is so true. It's good to be familiar with all these forms of communication as clients are all different. There's nothing like a hand-written note, we must remember.

Liz, your so right.  Asking each person how they prefer to communicate is critical.  I have found if we communicate in a way the client feels comfortabable, they are more likely to respond.....
