I had acreage listed and unfortunately it had expired. End of Story right? Wrong!- On Tuesday afternoon I received this call inquiring on the property. You say no big deal right? happens all the time, right? Well because the Land was expired and because we sold a small portion previously I explained to the potential Buyer I would need to get with the Seller and would call him back. Spoke to the Seller and got the go ahead. Seller was very excited. I went to my trust worthy phone to retrieve the number and my stupid phone would not let the number go through. After several hours on the phone with my cell phone provider and pulling one strand of my hair out at a time. I finally got someone at the cell phone company who had it going on! See this number on my cell wasn't your average 10 digit number. This number was 15 digits long.
This customer service person explained that the number I had coming in sounded like another country. She told me to add an additional three digit number to the number I had and I would be good.
I finally got someone on the phone. I told the person who I was and why I was calling. I had actually spoken with her husband. I asked the lady if she didn't mind where was I calling? Bearing in mind I live in Dalton, GA and my property is located in Lula, GA - - She said sure no problem - You have actually called Germany.
I was so blown away! I have forwarded the plat and information which is being reviewed and hopefully will develop into something but, my whole point and the reason I wanted to share is the fact that we as Realtors are truly accessible all over the world and when we list properties for our customers can say without question that we will truly be marketing their properties not just in their hometowns but, clearly all over the world.... How cool is that!!!
