Late Night Client Call to close the deal.

By
Real Estate Attorney with Bay Vista Realty BK671311

SO my phone rang last night at Two AM.  It was a recent home Seller/Buyer and friend of mine who wanted to call.

Now some of you are thinking Oh...Crap.....What did Gary do to piss this guy off?  But remember, I am still somewhat young (37) and many of my clients are my Military Friends who are younger still. 

My Client, acting on the mistaken premise that 2:00, yea, 0200,or O-DRUNK-THIRTY would be a great time to call and give me a referral, rang my cell.

He also invited me to go out and personally meet this prospect.  When I declined, he said that "If things

continued to go well, I could come over to his new place and meet her in the morning, Bring Coffee"

I told him thanks, but I would be busy in the morning working out my FUTURE living arrangements ,  and I didn't see him closing the deal if he got arrested for DUI,

so where can I send a Cab?

 

  He was already taken care of since they were in Ybor City, which is also where he lives and the Bar Hopping was on foot. 

So you see.  It is now about 8:00 on a Sunday morning, the kids are getting dressed and we are about to leave, but I had to share this story with you, my Real Estate Friends and I wanted to find out if he closed the deal so I could report to you.......wait while I ring his house phone........

..............

...............Oh, he sounds grumpy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No coffee!!!!!!!!!!!  For some reason I didn't think he would mind my 8:00  Call.

Cute,  Very Cute.

Drunk dialing your Realtor is not something you would like to remember the next morning.  But you were awfully sweet to check on him today. ;-)

Gary, Did you get your experience writing ransom notes?  :)

There could be another career in store for you...
