When You Don’t Answer Your Phone it Makes My Phone Ring


Via Bob Haywood, www.BobHaywood.com (McGraw Realtors):

CAUTION – The following is edgy and sarcastic.  Thanks to Greg Nino and TLW, I’m developing a sarcastic side!

Dear Mr/Mrs Real Estate Agent,

The Bob Haywood hotline!This letter is to say thank you.  Because when you don’t answer your phone it makes my phone ring.  It happened again yesterday.  A buyer had tried to call you several times to see your listing, but you never answered your phone or called them back.  So they gave up and called me.

See, I have this phone system called Facebook and I use it a lot to talk to people.  These folks contacted me through that little Facebook hotline I’ve got and asked if I could set up a showing for them since they could never seem to get a hold of you.  “Yep, I can do that!” was my reply.  See, I answer my phone.  And it pays off!

I want to say thank also because when you don’t answer your phone it makes my other hot line phones ring too.  I have several phone systems these days.  And it is easy for buyers to contact me using any one of them.  That’s because I make it easy for people to dial me up.  Not only can they easily find me and contact me on Facebook, but if they call my real phone, I call them back.  Further, I have multiple blogs, a website and other social media hot lines that make it very easy to find me and contact me.  When any one of them rings, I answer!

Finally, I want to say thank you for one last thing.  Thank you that you work alone.  When I called you to show the property, you told me you were at the lake and had intermittent phone service all weekend.  I got lucky catching you at the house at that moment.  Since you didn’t have anyone back home working with you or taking your calls, my phone rang.  Thank you so much!  Oh, and thank you that you didn’t set up all those easy to use hot lines.  I appreciate that!

So thank you for not being available, not answering your phone and not returning your calls.  I love it when one of my phones ring!

Talk to you soon…or not!

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
