I can't tell you how many times I receive an email or a call from my sellers with this question " Did the agent who called show my house? They did not leave a business card!" I purchased plaques that say "Agents, please leave your card" for each of our listings to remind agents to please leave a card as a courtesy to my sellers.
An agent calls to say they are going to show my sellers home. I instruct my sellers to always leave to give them privacy with their clients. Many times upon their return they are unsure if the agent has been there (sometimes it's obvious) because there is no business card left.
Many scenarios are running through their heads...maybe they should leave again or maybe the agent just didn't show the house or maybe they didn't like the house when they drove up...the list is endless. This all could be avoided if agents would just leave a card so the sellers would know if they came!! Is this asking too much?? Do agents really skimp on keeping a hefty supply of business cards to pass out at any opportunity??
