I Love When Past Clients Call

I Love When Past Clients Call

I had a phone call today from a past client who was calling to invite me to lunch.  She said she hated to call because she knows I stay super busy, but was trying to overcome her fear of interrupting or being a bother. Wow - that's the same fear I fight every single day!

Here's a little secret about this Cookeville real estate agent: picking up the phone to call can make me nervous too!  I'm human and I worry that maybe I'm interrupting you!  Now I know that most real estate agents are blessed with the gift of gab, and in fact, some barely stop to take a breath.  That's not quite me. If you've ever worked with me, then you know I'm more of a listener. I can certainly carry on a conversation, but it's still hard for me to pick up the phone sometimes.

Of course I was thrilled to hear from my friend/client!  Our conversation made me think that I should just go on the record and make it clear that I love to hear from my past clients.  It warms my heart to be invited to lunch, or even if it's just a call to ask a question. I love to be of service to folks even after the deal is done, and it means a lot to me to know a past client is thinking of me.

So by all means, call anytime. If I am busy, I'll let my voice mail pick up and call you back as soon as I'm able. One thing I can promise you though is that your voice mail is going to put a smile on my face. I will 100% love hearing from you. Cross my heart and pinky swear!!!

Virginia, I can so relate to this post as I am a listener as well, and how great for your past client to give you a call for a get together!  

OK, Cookeville, TN let's get on those phones and give Virginia Kail a call as she is never too busy to sit down and chat with friends and clients!

Great advice Virginia Kail "just pick up the phone and call". Every call doesn't need to be a "sales" call, it can be a reminder that we are thinking about them.

Bruce - I wish they would all call me, I'd love it!  I'd get to catch up with my favorite people and not have to agonize over being the one to call.

Bob, I've come a long way on picking up the phone thanks to private coaching but it's still hard for me. I tend to be very respectful of people's privacy and think much like my friend who called today. Thankfully my coach was right and it does get easier with practice.  :)

It is true, it is not easy to pick up the phone and  call someone who you did not speak for a long time or never had a chance at all to speak.

Inna Ivchenko - Calling is always hard for me and the longer it's been, the harder it is. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one it's hard for.  :)
