Working in a metropolitan area, it is common practice for me to lock the door upon entering the property with my clients and then again when I leave - regardless of whether there is another agent waiting to show it. I am never offended to reopen a lockbox or wait until the previous agent is done - whether an electronic one or combination. I give them the same respect I expect from them - time to show the property to my clients to thoughtfully consider it. I trust the agent leaving is looking out for her safety and understands she is held accountable for showing the property and leaving it secure when she/he leaves. It takes all of 5 seconds to open so I'm not entirely sure what the problem was? She was responsible for showing the property to her clients and then securing the property before leaving. Period. I'm not at all sure why you were offended by that unless her being on the phone seemed rude?
Gia Freer, sounds like that other agent may have been preoccupied with something else. Perhaps she was putting out a "fire" of sorts and wasn't in a position to be chatty? Either way, sounds like you handled it like a pro and just went with the flow. Sometimes we can't predict the personalities of the colleagues we come across.
I work almost entirely on referral so I've never had this as an issue. Are the testers just posing as random buyers who solicit your help? I've heard of this but never experienced it....scary stuff! What do they sue for? Do you mean they impose fines?
Hi Jack - think of Constant Contact as "do it yourself" - you have to write everything, decide when to send it, who to send it to and how often you should send it. These are the major pain points experienced with all DIY email marketing tools. At Happy Grasshopper, we do all the writing (you just approve or edit and approve before we send), we send once every three weeks and we write messages that are designed to go to everyone in your database. There have been dozens of threads in this group and the What Should I Spend My Money On group about the results people are getting with our service. Here's a few links that might help you.... http://www.facebook.com/groups/298329163552548/permalink/326340487418082/ http://www.facebook.com/groups/298329163552548/298891240163007/ If you've got any questions or if there's anything I can do to help, please just let me know. :)
I lock the door behind me when I leave a property. If I've had to register the showing in a key LB then the next agent needs to do the same. If it's a combo LB I ask for their business card before I hand over the key. I will also say when I go into a house I lock the door behind me so no one else can walk in. Safety is my first concern.
