Largo Florida Home Buyer Celebrations
Yesterday was a special day. One of our clients who bought a Largo Pool home recently had a house-warming party with friends and neighbors and invited us to be a part of it.
We had worked with this family for over a year to find the perfect home. Leah Ross, the best mortgage professional we know, also helped them with their Mortgage and did a great job and was at the party. As you can see even my 2 boys got to give the pool a test drive - they gave it two thumbs up.
Getting to share moments like these are the really special parts of our job. As we have said before, we don't do closings - we do Celebrations. We are fortunate to build long-term relationships with our clients and they often become special friends -that is the case here.
Knowing my family would be there from the late afternoon into the evening I changed my voicemail to let anyone who called know my plans and it also allows me to focus on enjoying this get together.
My real-time voice message was something like this...
"Hello, You've reached Cyndee Haydon with Belloise Realty. It's 4pm on Saturday September 9th and Jack and I will be out of the office the remainder of the day celebrating with a family we just helped purchase their dream pool home. We've been invited to meet their family and friends at a housewarming bar-b-que and I'm sure you can understand that due to the party I won't be returning calls today however, I will return calls Sunday from 11am - noon except in case of an emergency." (which there shouldn't have been any)
Most people appreciate that I change my message daily and let them know when they can expect a return call. So this morning I got up and checked my voicemail at 9am (Sunday morning) before changing my message for the day and to my disbelief I got the following messages....
A message from 7:35am on Sunday morning from a sign call: "This is Mr Homebuyer, No I don't get it at all and I want to see a house you have listed at xyz address and I want you to call me as soon as possible." (In a terse and angry voice)
Another message at 8:00am on Sunday morning from Mr Homebuyer again "Just forget it, I got another agent to work with me so disregard my last message and don't return my call - they can arrange a showing for me"
Please note the time and date - Both before 8 AM on SUNDAY!While buyers may be scarce in this market - this one thankfully moved on. It's not like this person had called before and I hadn't returned his call - he was calling me before electronic lockboxes are even activated daily. For a moment I felt guilty and then I thought about it and realized that...
As much as I love what I do, I also believe life is too short to work with nasty people - my friends and family don't treat me that way - why would I let a stranger?
So if you know someone thinking of buying or selling a home in the Largo or Tampa Bay area you can feel confident knowing that as Real Estate Agents...
- We work hard for our home buyers and home sellers;
- We will treat you like we would treat our own family;
- We are available 7 days a week if needed;
- And can accommodate most requests;
But we do have a life outside of real estate though they often overlap and we do sleep nightly (though at times there are rumors to the contrary).
I hate to disappoint anyone, however, I've come to realize that not everyone is meant to be my client and that's ok. At the end of the day, when I see the joy and happiness of our clients experience in their new homes I can feel comfortable listening to the phone message above and peacefully saying NEXT....
I'm curious, regardless of the business you're in - Do you choose your clients as much as they choose you?
