thirteen Texting Terms To Use

Texting is becoming a more common way for clients to communicate with you-perhaps to send a quick message about a listing or to let you know they're running late. To decipher their message and send a quick reply, you should know the common shorthand.

BC Because

BTW By the way

CU See you 

DRIB Don't read if busy 

EOD End of day

NRN No reply necessary 

OTP On the phone

P&C Private and confidential 

QQ Quick question

RFD Request for discussion 

THX Thanks 

U You

YW You're welcome

Does anyone have any they would like to add to this list?

Thanks for the texting info. I'm one of those people who cannot abbreviate anything in my texts. My English education just won't allow it. ;)

Everyone doesn't text.  That said, some people who are potential clients will so we need to be prepared and accomodating.  This list will help lots of people break into the new world of texting, Barbara!
