Checking Your Teeth — and Your Voicemail Messages

In retrospect, it DID seem a little quiet yesterday, even though I wasn’t hosting an open house, doing showings, or otherwise involved in a deal.

The explanation?

My cellphone’s voicemail was full.

I found out when a client sent me an email.

In contrast to a few agents I know, who intentionally (I gather) routinely leave their voicemails full as a way of limiting their “incoming,” in my case, it was purely an oversight, albeit an uncommon one.

P.S.: Voice mail “Catch-22.” As an agent, you know how integral your cell phone is when, after being alerted that your voicemail is full, you instinctively react by thinking, “Why didn’t they just leave me a voicemail?? (to let me know).” 🙂
