Angry phone calls. Why they make me happy.

 The truth of the matter is that over the course of time I have had more than one person claim that I am a bit insensitive. I simply don't seem to mind saying things that I souldn't, and don't really care whether or not people like me. Recently my wife, whose also an agent, suggested that I take some flyers to apartment complexes for one of my listings. This was something I had not done before, but I figured why not. So, I took said flyers to a complex and put them out on car windshields. Within 45 minutes I had two phone calls, and both turned out well. In-fact, one is buying the house.

 So, this of-course made me want to put out more flyers at more apartments. So, I did, and I return one morning I received a phone call at 7:45am from a lady screaming at the top of lungs about how " we don't appreciate all your flyers" all over the apartments. So, when I asked her if while she was on the phone would she be interested in buying a house, she hung up on me. It wasn't until a few minutes later that it dawned on me e she was likely some one who worked at the apartments, and not the head of the home renters association.

 So, that being said, I realized that angry phone call seemed to make me want to put out even more flyers. In fact, am listening to the copy machine now. Have a great day guys, I know I will.

Are realtors that lazy?

I hear a great deal from the general public about realtors and how lazy they are. It seems that one of the largest opinions of realtors in my area is that they don't really do very much to earn their money. Now I'll be the first to admit, that… more
