My first text-only client....

By
Real Estate Agent with Smart Green Realty

It is not that she is not tech saavy. She has a computer. She found me on the internet. She found a bunch of potential houses on the net too. She just doesn't bother with email. I guess she has Facebook so Facebook and texting are all she uses. What is Facebook etiquette anyway? I barely know her. Is it too forward to ask to be her friend on Facebook so I can send her MLS listings?

Zeta, I agree with Eric and Ken.  I friended one of my clients after meeting her twice.

Hi Zeta, I would just text and ask "I want to make sure my messages reach you in a way that is most convenient for you.. " If you are asking to be friends wouldn't that go through your personal FB page? I haven't played around with the group feature and guess there is a way that not all friends/groups can see your personal pictures/posts etc.
