Don't Ever Say This to a Client

July 31, 2014

Real estate agents should never tell clients that they only check their messages, emails, and phones during business hours. Rather, they should inform clients of the best times to reach them and indicate that they will respond within a certain amount of hours.

Additionally, clients should never have to hear that an agent does not have a mobile website with new listings, neighborhood information, and buyer and seller resources. Agents also should avoid telling clients they do not hold open houses, instead emphasizing all the other different strategies that they will employ to market the home. 

Finally, instead of saying they will get the clients a particular house, agents should stress the need to put in an offer right away and that they will do everything they can to help them land the property.
