YOu never know who is reading what..

One of the things you learn working in corporate America is you never know where what you write will end up. 

Emails get forwarded, then forwarded again, and again, and again.  The domino push has started.

Suddenly your "private" audience of one is now an entire department and subject to a Reply All cloudburst, and there's no walking it back!

Things written as a joke or in confidence can easily wind up as Exhibit A in a lawsuit against the company.

So needless to say, that mindset transfers over to me in real estate.

I've seen agents forward things to their clients that kick the proverbial beehive.

An agent provides showing feedback that the "master bathroom is WEIRD!".  That's NOT the kind of stuff I want going straight to my seller.

Is the master bathroom unusual in that it has a door from the bathroom straight into the living room?  You bet.  But considering the change was made for someone with medical issues and it cut about 45 feet of walking to get to the nearest bathroom and the home is in a 55+ community, the modification actually makes sense.

And of course we've all heard stories of agents posting things on their "personal" or "business" Facebook pages that have gone viral, and NOT in a good way.  It usually doesn't take long for a broker to decide the agent should be "seeking other job opportunities" to borrow a phrase from my corporate life.

Real estate or corporate America, it's critical to use discretion.  Who knows where your next comment, blog post, email or Facebook post or comment just might wind up?

Morning Ginger.

I am very careful when I send an email, or any other form of print.  It will come back to bite you
