I cannot begin to tell you how many clients, as well as other agents, who compliment me because I answer my phone. Which means other agents do not. To me, that is like complimenting me on the color of my eyes, which I can't do anything about. My method of operation is to answer my phone, to be responsive.
Just like when I receive an inquiry, I follow up. If it's a buyer, I match the buyer with one of my team members. If that team member cannot acknowledge receipt immediately, it goes to another team member. Clients expect an immediate response, even if it's nothing more than to say yes, I received your message.
