Yes, I have a cell phone and every time it rings I have the urge to answer it. Before I had kids, I answered it all the time...I had that luxury. However now I set limits because I want to spend time with my family. I tell all my clients that I don't answer the phone after 6pm, that's reserved for family. I also don't work before 9 am because I like my morning time alone with the kids. Of course that doesn't mean I am not on the computer blogging.
I have had clients call me at 3 am, wanting to know the address to the new home they just bought. I have had clients call 10 times in a row because I didn't answer the phone the first time they called. I still didn't on the 10th one either. Some Realtors advertise they are available 24-7. Good for them...I don't function well without 8 hours of sleep so that doesn't work for me. I draw a line between work and home, which can be difficult sometimes when you work from home.
So if you need to reach me and I don't answer the phone, the best bet is that I am with family or with another client. Just leave a message and I will call you back. The same goes for email. I usually answer in a couple of hours, depending when I am on line. I love real estate and if you get to know me, it shows. Work with me, and I will work hard for you...just not at 3 am.
