What does "J" mean in e-mail messages?


Well communication is key in all business matters but especially true in real estate transactions.  Each business has it's own acronyms and some of the ones we use in our everyday business everyday can be very perplexing to those who do not handle many real estate transactions on a regular basis.


People communicate in many ways.  Typically a written communication is the best way to ensure the intent of the message is received and understood in the manner it was proposed.


Determining how a Client, Customer or Co-Broke is comfortable communicating is key...now with so many choices....


Do we strictly communicate by face to face discussion?


Do we call on the phone? 


Do we email?


Do we use snailmail? (US Mail)


Or do we text?


Texting has it's own rules and guidelines and common icons or shortcuts for phrases and words.  It is important that the party you are communicating with be at the same level of understanding in the world of texting.


The original question:


What does "J" mean in e-mail messages?


Did you see a j or J at the end of an email recently?  All is good - that is a symbol used in texting to represent a happy face !!!!   so no worries - they didn't leave out the rest of the word (LOL -Laugh out Loud)...Wingdings fonts will post a happy face or smiley face/emotion icon when you type the letter "j" on a computer equipped with this software.


Communication is key in any real estate transaction or social interaction.  Should you like to discuss your own real estate plans for the future whether of a residential nature or commercial in buying, selling or leasing, please give me a call on 781-829-2900 or an email on MaryBeth@TradeWindsRealtyGroup.com or a text on 781-910-7294 or let's schedule a face to face meeting at your location or one of the TradeWinds Realty Group llc offices in Massachusetts in Norwell, Plymouth, Pembroke or our new office in Braintree, Massachusetts!  Look forward to communicating soon.


Regards and Happy Communicating,  MaryBeth Mills Muldowney, Broker Owner
