. On our way to our weekly Nacco Tacho Network Tuesday to meet our newly acccepted offer Buyers, my phone BLEW UP...it looked like everyone we had ever known was sending messages and texts telling us they were not,,,or could not or would not open the attachment we sent them in a Facebook message. Say WHAT ?
I had not sent a message....or an attachment...as I write this...I just got a text from myself...Oh Geez ! Well it was a pleasant one...just Good Morning !
I immediately changed the password as we had been told to "stop the madness." The avalanche of messages slowed to a drip. I later answered all of them individually. Some were from AR members...clients...agents who were referral sources...other agents in our brokerage from everywhere...quite a variety of people some that I rarely had communication from/with on a regular basis.
Hmmmmm....How to turn this disaster into something positive....not as bad as when Dini drowned my phone....I could certainly still use it. Lemons to lemonade as they say...and it sooo the lemonade season ...albeit with a vodka splash at happy hour.
One message was from an old school pal...so asked her what she was doing these days. She said she was thinking of moving...to Hawaii....could I recommend an agent ...Yes Yes Yes I could.
Another message was from an agent at our previous Brokerage...How did we like EXP she wondered...Love it...would you like to talk...Yes Yes Yes she would. We now have a "phone date".
I know the list of good things will continue today ! While we don't recommend getting Hacked as a way to renew acquaintances...near and far...a better way might be to go thru your Facebook Friends..phone directory...address list....and just say "Hi"...I hadn't talked to you in a while...just checking in on what's happening in your life.
