I found this email in my inbox this morning. I'm guessing the marketer does have a great IDX website set up. I am also certain that they are much better at building websites than me. However, the grammar mistakes are so glaring that I would never want to work with someone who could make that many errors in so few words. 


If my Realtor doesn't know the difference between "Your" and "You're" or "lose" and "loose", how can I trust him/her to write a proper contract?

I contemplated replying to his email with some constructive criticism, but wasn't sure how it would be received. Would you have said anything?

 

In closing, always do a spell and grammar check! It won't catch everything, but it will help.

Hi Wendy... I'll be the first to say that grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes are major pet peeves of mine regardless of where or from whom they originate.

I've received an email just recently very similar  and it wasn't the first one from the party. I finally, replied with a request for them to use ''spell and grammar" check and I may consider contacting them.

Have you ever given thought that maybe their website builder is overseas? Reason I say that is because someone built a site for me & recommended someone & I was totally appauled at their grammar skills (or lack thereof).

I provided the info I wanted used & they 'ad-libbed'. It was a disaster.
