This morning a buyer called me at 7:45am. it is Sunday morning. Really. Why did this gentleman call me that early this morning? Something urgent? Nope. He was on the internet and saw a property that he wanted to go see and get more information on.
He called and I answered because I didn’t know if there was some type of emergency and didn’t want to take the chance that I would miss an important call.
When he told me what he wanted and I asked him if he was seriously calling at 7:45am on a Sunday morning he said yes and I want to see this property. So I am thinking that he may not know that there are real people who have web sites and that just because you can access property information, community information and all of the other good stuff on my site it does not mean that I am available to answer questions at all times of the day and night.
Some agents claim to work 24/7 but don’t believe them because even real estate agents need to sleep at times and I am not one of those agents. While I work 7 I don’t work 24.
In this case however I told him to find another agent that I would not want to work with someone that was that inconsiderate that it would not occur to him that calling at that hour was not okay – at least with me.
