Handling Volume Calls on Your Short Sale Listings June 8th, 2009 | Posted in General Real Estate

The cooperative agent can be a big time commitment in handling many short sale listings. Just record the information they need to make your life easier. This is best outlined by the answer to the following question that we received on our “Ask Wally” service on our website at www.waltersanford.com.

Question:

Hi! After receiving over 50 calls yesterday for status on my listings, I set up the 800 system to provide “showing information.” No need to do it this week-end, but could you please listen to some samples and give me your feedback and thoughts. Any suggestions are always appreciated.

Call: 1-800-XXX-XXXX. Ext. 24251, 711, 2211, and 401. These are samples of many.

Thanks and have a great week-end. By the way, I hired a new assistant!

Best,
Valerie
