“Return with me now to the thrilling days of yesteryear” as the lead line to an old radio show began. Don’t worry, I am not going to bore you with trivia. That quote was just a lead-in to a subject that deserves a relook.
We have become so dependent on technology that we sometimes forget some basic courtesies. Have to admit that I am as technology oriented as most but I do not rely on it for all my tasks or chores.
Let’s start with some assumptions. There are lots of listings and not as many showings as listing agents (possibly save foreclosures or short sales) would like to see. Sellers (other than banks/lending institutions) still like to hear feedback on showings of their homes. Providing feedback to listing agents is, at least, common courtesy.
The other day I called an agent, after having to go to FAAR for a good telephone number since the agent’s number on Kimweb was incorrect, and left a message asking for a return call with feedback. Am a bit surprised that I have yet to receive a call back.
Am I asking for too much?
Are you too busy to take a few minutes of your time to return a call?
Are you afraid to give me bad news? Remember, I’m a big boy and have been doing this for more years than I like to admit.
Concerned that I may actually thank you for showing my listing? I really do appreciate you doing so.
Client have some interest and afraid to indicate such? Perhaps we can negotiate a sale out of this!
I really can’t figure it out. Come on folks, give me a hand.
What ever happened to feedback?Tweet
