Lack of communication

By
Real Estate Agent with Century21 New Millennium

Ok I admit, I am not perfect.  I do how ever try to return  my calls/emails in a timely fashion.  I do admit I blow some people off you know those pesky sales people (like myself)...My problem lies within the communication when you are waiting for an answer or a response to a question, you know something that is pertinent to what is going on business, family, life etc.  Ok I may not like what you have to say, but for god's sake just say it. I am a big girl, let me know so I can move on.  People are the first to call or email you when they have good news.  When it's bad you hear nothing or even when they don't have an answer, nothing..How about just picking up the phone and saying I have not forgot about you, I am still working on it, even an email would suffice..It is very frustrating..waiting for a response.

If you can't communicate, how are you running your business?  or why are you in business?  Communicating can be good for your health think about it  if you promptly communicate you are not stressing, nor are you making the other person stress about what is going on.  Another benefit would be the respect and professionalism that comes with communicating.

This also has a trickling affect..I am the middle man and the person to my right wants an answer but I can't give it to him/her because the person to my left has not picked up the phone, sent an email..in other words COMMUNICATED with me as of yet..This perturbs me to tell someone, I am sorry, I do not have an answer and I have gone to the top of the chain..How do you think this looks?  UUGGHHH

With todays modern technology maybe a message slipped through and is out there in that vast space, probably with those missing socks, but come on I am not an idiot.  I know you received my voice mail, text message, & email..are you telling me you did not receive any of my messages??  Stop avoiding me and get to the point. 

           **Thanks I needed that..I feel better now..don't expect me to communicate back either :o)

Kathleen - I'm with ya!  Everything is 'urgent' until it gets to a certain point.  Then it seems as though the whole train derails.  It's a wonder we maintain our sanity at any level.

Abosolutely spot on, in fact, just today, I was irritated with someone who did not call back, last time we spoke it was an immediate emergency, so I solved the problem and had one more question before going fully operational, then they were no where to be found, did not call me back, when I finally got ahold of them, they basically has a lame excuse. Leading me to wonder why on Earth was it so urgent for me to act, if they don't care to properly communicate. Its just unfortunate that folks do not take the time to communicate. Lance
