With all the new showing suites and appointment centers agents are being bombarded with requests for feedback oftentimes even before we have finished showing our clients. Then the foloowing day or two the phone calls start coming in from the personal assistants and agents themselves asking "How did the showing go?".
In a tough market with so many homes on the market, sellers are expecting their agents to find out if there is interest in their home or if there is a problem that might be able to be fixed. From the listing agent's point of view it is even more diffficult to tell your seller client that the agent has not responded to requests or will not return phone calls. What a black eye this puts on our industry and conveys a message that we are not working together.
I am turning over a new leaf and trying to respond to each request. Most are email generated and easy to respond to anyway. This not only helps our fellow agents but elevates our professionalism in the eyes of the clients. What great things we can accomplish if we all work together.
