"I called three agents, and you're the first one who answered his phone". Said the voice at the other end of the call.
"I'd like you to show me this $600,000 property. The listing agent offered to show it to me, but I want my own agent".
I was suspicious. It sounded too easy, but as the call continued, she sounded more and more legitimate.
I took her name, and contact information... made the appointment, and called her back. Shock of shocks... she had given me a legitimate cell phone number. She answered.
We made an appointment to meet this evening. Bigger shock... she showed up along with her husband and son.
We toured the house she wanted to see... I don't think it's going to end up being the house she (and her family) will end up purchasing. But we had a long discussion about agency, and an ongoing search. I set her up on a computerized search, and we're going to begin searching in earnest.
I didn't recognize the phone number.... but I answered the phone. Answer your phone, people.
