My phone rang and the pleasant voice at the other end said "Ms Starnes?", to which I hesitantly replied "Yes". Realtors receive telemarketing calls on a daily basis and THIS call sounded suspicously like someone wanting to sell me the next best website, Google or Yahoo placement, or real estate gizmo or gadget.
"I got your name from Mr. Johnson."
Sounds suspect, but the caller continues:
"You helped him buy his house and were so helpful that I told him I wanted HIS agent when it came time to sell my house. I'm calling to schedule an appointment."
If I haven't said it lately, MY CLIENTS ROCK! My business thrives on word of mouth and repeat business, and THIS KIND OF CALL MAKES MY DAY!
Thank you Mr. Johnson for recommending me to your friends.
I will take good care of them. You have my personal guarantee!
