Sorry I am not available at the moment. Please leave a message or for immediate assistance call my Partner Manny at 410 7777
This is what my answering machine says. I always answer my phone, (not at 6 am on a Sunday morning or 11 pm on a Monday night) unless I am talking to a client that is. I think it is absolutely rude to answer the phone while you are on a listing agreement, writing up an offer or showing property. I pride myself in paying as much attention as I possibly can to my clients and I just don’t think that I should interrupt a conversation because my phone rings. Yesterday I had a message, it said “Since you are obviously unavailable I will call another Florida Realtor to help my buy property”
That got me thinking, how do you handle phone calls when you are with a client?
