Try this easy cell phone test

Frog answering phone

With so much talk about who will be the best agent for you, I'd like to suggest a quick and simple test :

Call an agent on his or her cell phone . . .

Did they answer?

If they don't answer, it's okay!  They may be conversing with an actual human being at the time of your call - and we all know that it is rude to ignore the person in front of you to dive for your phone.

Howeverleave a message then get on with your day while you wait for a return call.

You should find that the agent will return your call within a reasonable amount of time at their next opportunity.

After all, even the greatest agent in the world won't do you much good if you can never reach them.

Good way to check how responsive an agent is BEFORE the listing!

Brenda, it is very annoying when an agent does not get back to you within a day.   There is always a few minutes to make that call!

It is a great test for a listing agent one wants to hire to sell their biggest asset:)
