Just Pick Up The Phone

 There was a post written this week by Leanne Smith 

She shares some very simple advice.

  In a nutshell, Leanne said...just pick up the phone.


This point is proved almost daily when callers, a bit surprised, say something like..."I expected a voice message."

 'You were the only one who picked up the phone and answered my question."

A caller today said he left messages with two other agents with no return calls and another agent answered the phone with "hello" and he was darn sure that was not a person he wanted to work with.'

Real estate is not as easy as it looks but it is not as hard as it looks.

Are we all to busy to pick up the phone, return a call or text the person with a response?
