Being able to communicate effectively in this wonderful busy world of real estate is essential. Are there ever problems? But of course.
When I first meet a new client, whether buyer or seller, an agent or even my friends...I tell them how I operate.
If you send me a text, an email or leave me a message...I will respond. If you don't hear from me, then presume that the message was NOT received.
From the beginning I let others know if they don't hear back from me...reach out again. Stuff does happen.
Just this morning, I realized that my Monday home inspection appointment was not acknowledged. Going back to my text ...I saw my written message but next to it ''not delivered."
Immediately resent and within seconds got my expected response.
Stuff happens. The need for follow up is crucial. So when I don't hear back some someone, the benefit of the doubt is given. Resend the message, make another phone call, repeat a text, or email. Don't assume the message was received.
Follow up and always give the benefit of the doubt.
Always return the call IF the message is received!
