I can top that Paul. I'm still waiting for a broker to get back to me with the right price on a unit . . . SINCE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. It's still in MLS with 3 different prices and it's still an available unit. That owner wanted a bargain basement fee and believe me, he got what he paid for! Hahahahah!

Hard to believe Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, - cannot be a busy agent if it took 2 days to return your call, meaning they are not in the office daily.  I wonder if it's an older lady who is not even comfortable with a flip phone?  And, if she is part of a 'team' with someone who can reply back in a timely manner, or doesn't realize that alot will fall through the cracks.  Time and timing is everything!

"doesn't have a cell phone."

Good for her. She has decided not to be enslaved to that menace.

Here on the Guf Coast of Florida, the only means of unlocking the Supra Box is via the app on the cell phone. 

I would LOVE to see that agents business plan. I anticipate this agent will leave real estate and become a Uber driver. 

Imagine, if you will. what closing a transaction with the agent would be like.
