TEXTING AND THE CLIENT

By
Real Estate Agent with Equity Real Estate

As the market gets younger and younger people will text more. If you're client is a "texter" match it. If they are "phone call" person match it. Do what your client likes and needs. You have to be able to change with the times.

Also I agree that all contract communitcation should be in e-mail form and/or writing so you can document it. BUT for people that don't know this I'd like to share a bit of info. There are APPS that can take a whole text conversation 200+ messages, put them into email form and email them to yourself. This will give you the phone#, dates, times and then you have all that documented. I actually do this with my tenants and clients.

Like I say CYA ... Cover Your A**

Did your client hire you for your technology awareness, or your for your skill in real estate?

Fred- it's called "email my conversation" and I believe it's available on both android and Iphone.

 

David- Now a days it seems they both go together.

Yes, I just added this app for exactly the reason you suggest. Changing times require changing best practices to be the best real estate agent.
