You who? Wish I was as busy as yoo-hoo!

You who? Wish I was as busy as yoo-hoo!

You who? Wish I was as busy as yoo-hoo!

We all get busy with deadlines to meet and details of transactions in progress but is that an excuse to let phone calls, text messages and emails go unanswered? Has common courtesy gone by the wayside for your business?

It sure seems that way because I just received a referral opportunity because you were just 'too busy' to get back to those viable buyers. Plans have already been made to meet with them, look at properties that may suit their search criteria and make myself available when necessary. Reaching their real estate goals is crucial for them and ultra-important to me with no more time wasted.

So, if your potential client traffic flow continues to decrease, you may want to get back to the basics. That is strictly up to you of course but you really missed out on this one!

Thanks for reminding all of us to focus on the basics, Wanda.  Like you I have always wondered what some agents are thinking.  Oh well, it doesn't matter since the referrals come to those, like you, who respond in timely manner & make your schedule fit theirs.  Kudos.

No response, reassign simple. And let them know it is time sensitive. Order before midnight snooze and lose important. Set the expectations, don't assume they will do what you do to jump through hoops. Go above and beyond.

Wanda, Just the simple steps will make a difference. I have feeling things will be changing as the market slows down.

Wanda,

That is so true.  My first deal in real estate was with someone who was told she was too busy  to work with her...so glad she did...You are so right, so many abandon the fundamentals.  A

Hello Wanda,  You are so right.  The more I see what people write about here in the rain keeps me reminded to stay the course.  Have a great day.  Watch the Broncos tomorrow night.

1996 I made a decision to operate a 100% referral based business and have never looked back. Once the commitment was made, I stopped chasing business, it start chasing me.

I like these overly busy agents.  My client for tomorrow came to me when the agent they called said he was busy.

The home tomorrowis $500,000.
