If You are going to be a No Show... Have the Guts to Call

Bob posted a blog that hits my hot button.  There is just no place in this business for rudeness.

Just like common sense, courtesy is also becoming a dinosaur.


I don't care if it is in your business or your personal life, if you are going to be late or a no show...CALL and let the other party know.

If You are going to be a No Show...  Have the Guts to Callno show



At least call back.

Nothing is more irritating than to take time from your important tasks of the day than to go show a home to someone who does not show up.

The irritation is only compounded when they do not call, do not answer their phone, or even have the decency to return a call.

I understand that things happen, people get into car accidents, people oversleep, peoples brains get fried when in the presence of someone they are attracted to, even a few get arrested, and a few are occasionally beamed up by aliens, or so they say.

But I suspect that the reason why most don’t show up is something simpler, they found a different place, they spaced it out, or they are just plain irresponsible people.

Regardless of the reason or excuse, seeking a home, seeking a job, or even going to college are all grown up activities and demand that you take responsibility.

So make it a point to show up, call if you cannot, and above all return a call!!!

That just is plain rude,  That brings into question the character of the person an how serious they were about their purchase

Thanks for sharing this Bill, I think that it is a hotspot for all of us as we wait and wait for people who will never show up.

Good morning William.  It happens to all of us.  I'll give them a pass twice, after that they need to find another agent, I just don't have the time to deal with people like that

Couldn't agree more with Bob.  In fact, I had a customer that was 20 minutes late for our first appointment with no call and slept through the second appointment.  There were no more appointments with me!

Great choice for a reblog and this sort of thing really frustrates me as well, especially since I pride myself on always being punctual.

Bill, this re-blog goes hand in hand with your own blog.  Looks like this is a common problem

Calling ahead of time is the easiest way to stay professional in any situation like this.
