When asked to estimate actual response times, these sellers guessed that two-thirds of their agents responded in under four hours, with 9% responding instantly.
Now, I live and work in West University, where improper cell phone usage can get me ticketed by the West U cops – so I simply cannot offer you an instant response every single time! However, I have plenty of safety nets to make sure I respond promptly to my customers. Technology provides one fail-safe (my email and text messages roll over to my cell phone), and people provide the other (my fully-licensed assistant Jane can answer most questions on my behalf).
But there is another important question to ask: Do you want a fast answer - or do you want an accurate one? Please remember that it takes time to review complicated legal documents and calculations – and that careful review is in your best interest. My personal preference is for real estate communications that include accuracy as well as speed.
(Sorry, I must end this post here – gotta answer the phone!)
