Real Estate, etc... by Eric Michael: January 2011

I Work 24/7/365, and I'm trying to figure out how to work even More!

I Work 24/7/365, and I'm trying to figure out how to work even More!

That's my new motto. From now on, I'll work 100% of every day. 24 hours - 1,440 minutes - 86,400 seconds. Every Day. Holidays, birthdays, you name it. I'm there for you.

I have a family. I have clients. I even have friends (which, until now, I was going to try to keep in touch a little more. read about that here)

I'm pushing them all to the side.

I want to be there for YOU.

You call me, I'll pick up the phone. Every time.

Send me an email. I'll get back to you within seconds.

Text me. I'll respond before you can put your phone down.

Even Think about me, your phone will ring, and my helpful, cheery voice will be there to take care of your every need.

 

Stressed at Work

Isn't that what you want?

You want your real estate agent to drop what they're doing, no matter what it is, and be there for YOU. At your beck and call. Like a personal servant?

No problem. I'm in. I'll give up golf, watching The Apprentice and helping my children with their homework. Just for YOU.

*pause*

Okay, I can't go on any longer. This is ridiculous.

Like you, I have a life. I have a family that means more to me than anything. I have friends. I have hobbies. I also need a little time to relax. And seriously, I can't give up eating. I like eating.

What I will promise is that I'll be here for you. I do what needs to be done. I return calls, emails and texts. And believe it or not, I've read a mind or two. It's pretty cool.

Let me know, up front, what you expect of me. I'll meet or exceed your expectations. If I can't, I'll let you know.

And for any client, or potential client, that truly thinks I should be available 24/7/365, let me help you find another agent. I know a few that'll drop what their doing and ask "how high?" when you tell them to jump.

Have a great day,

Eric...
