In An Appointment...Enough Said!

I like the reference to rocks below. I like the real life examples. There is a lot to juggle in anyone's schedule. No one needs the gruesome details. The scripts below communicate the point. I am in an appointment, I have back to back appointments, that time is not convenient, that time is booked all say YES but just not at that time. You manage energy sometimes not time. Everyone manages, just some manage better than others.

'In An Appointment'...

 

Enough Said!

 

 

We all  schedule and set up appointments for the numerous tasks busy Realtors® manage daily. We put our important dates in first, many  written in stone...family and personal functions, settlements, vacations etc. Then everything else fits around your "big rocks." 

 

 

Hairstyles

 

 

It is not necessary to let the world know what is going on in your life. 

 

Do we really NEED to know why you are not available?

 

Here are two recent examples given by real estate professionals.

 

           1- I am in the chair getting my hair done.

2-I am prepping for a colonoscopy. 

 

 I can not make this stuff up, but aren't you glad I chose the above photo?

 

TMI

 

I do not need to know that. No matter what is on your schedule, there is a professional way to handle the situation. 

Here are some easy responses.

 

-That is not a convenient time. How about 2 or 3?

- I am booked at that time.

-I have back to back appointments this  morning, would this afternoon or tomorrow morning work for you? 

-12-1 Pm Sunday is not possible. Is there another time that would be convenient?

 

 Or just say:

 

 

'In An Appointment'...

 

Enough Said!

Cheryl, This is a good reblog. I agree with Margaret. I will remember these tips next time I deal with my clients in such situations.

We had company for dinner last night and right in the middle of the afternnoon I get a call from a renter wanting to go look at rental property. It was easy to say no I can't and also let her know that on a Sunday it is hard to show rentals without prior planning.

Cheryl Ritchie I can fit a lot in but I can also say no without offending. Enough said! Welcome back to the Rain. You have been missed!

Hi Cheryl, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland is a master at time management and has impressed me with all she gets done on any given Sunday. It must be her organizational skills and high energy.
