I am going away. All of a sudden people need me.

Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott Sp34627

Does it ever fail.  I plan a trip to Florida to see my people.  I leave Saturday.  A lead I have been following since mid November wanted a proposal but they can't meet with me before I leave.  I have to own up to the fact that I will be away for 12 days.  I do have back up and this property I can list with very little help from my backup.  The pictures I already have.  It is just putting up signs and lockboxes.   I do not know if they will list with me.   I hope they do.  I will do a great job for them and get their homes sold.   


My buyer seems really interested right now.  She won't leave me and I will give her my backup's information. 


So I sometimes think a Realtor should plan to travel every other month.   That way they will stay very busy.

Hello Debbie - real estate happens everyday.  That said, there often seems to be some type of cosmic occurrence of planned time away versus activity of many kinds.  Go forth, have a good time in Florida.  Plan accordingly.

Good morning Debbie. Your story is a familiar one. It always happens that way. Do you best, tell the truth and I hope the seller waits for you.

We always take a family vacation in July to Florida and we joke because it never fails, we get a ton of new leads, closings, etc right at that time. We always welcome it all with open arms and refer to other agents if we need to.  Hope you have a great trip.
