How Do You Stay in Touch With Your Mission Viejo Realtor?

Call MeText MeEmail MeFacebook Message Me?  The Choices to Stay in Touch With Your Realtor are Endless!

Today, we live in an age of myriad communication choices to help us stay in touch – apps, devices, and platforms.  We’re all viscerally connected to our device(s) of choice – be it an IPhone, IPad, Droid, 3G, 4G, or Galaxy some other device.  Just so you know, when it comes to actually being in a transaction where you are buying or selling a house in Mission Viejo, Coto de Caza, or Rancho Santa Margarita, California today, you’ll want to know early on what’s the best way to stay in touch with your Realtor, Lender, Escrow Officer, and Home Inspector.  These are the folks who’ll mean the most to you for the next four to six weeks of your life.  So, here’s a heads up about five things you need to keep in touch as you as you head into your next Mission Viejo real estate transaction using all the communication tools available to us today.

  1. Texting – The average age of the people really working in the business as a Residential Real Estate Agent – aka your Realtor – is something like 61 – now don’t quote me on this – I’m just going by the look of the agents in my office.  Test the waters early on and see if your agent even knows how to text.  Then realize that she is out most of her day showing houses to buyers and talking to sellers about how to get the most money for their house.  We really do not stop and text in the middle of a home showing or a listing presentation to a potential client.  And I can only speak for myself on this point, but I do not text and drive.  And driving is a large part of my job.  You get where I’m going with this, right?
  2. Emailing – Email means detail to most Realtors.  Most Realtors work tirelessly to get your transaction completed on time and within the parameters agreed upon in the contract you signed.  An email from your Realtor probably means you need to provide some specific and detailed information, review and sign something, or be aware of a new development.  Your detailed response will be the highlight of your Realtor’s day.  I’m smiling just thinking about getting a detailed response to a client email.
  3. Voicemail – Please realize that if you call your Realtor and leave a voice mail, the more detailed you can be the better.  She called you for a reason or you called her with a question.  I’ve been actually brought to tears with only one bar on my cell service listening to a client’s voice mail and all I get is “It’s me returning your call.  Call me when you get this.”  Did you really not understand that I needed your specific answer to a specific question which I posed in the voice mail message I left you?
  4. A Live Phone Call – When your Realtor calls you, call her back.  An actual phone call signifies that something really needs your attention or you need to have a real-time discussion about a complicated or emotionally-charged topic. No smiley face or LOL designation will suffice in this moment.
  5. Meeting in Person – Most of your live face-to-face interactions will be with your Realtor.  The face of your entire buying or selling experience.  Ask all of your questions.  Present all of your problems and concerns.  Listen to her expert advice.  And rest assured she’ll text, email, and voicemail all the other people on your team to get the job done right.

Hey – I’m just trying to help you get a grip on your team and save you the frustration of unanswered messages.  Text.  Email. Or Voice mail.
