Even I as a Realtor often ask this question. Some insight on this subject may seem defensive, but take heart as I am not compassionate of this behavior, In line with my "why should you use a realtor" blog entry, Realtors are here to Represent buyers and sellers, whose license is held under a broker, nearly every realtor is self employed. Need clients, go find them. Need to advertise, pay for it, need a new computer, buy it. So one would think they would answer there phones? Listing property and showing property is time consuming, and often it is inappropriate to answer our phone. But to not return a call, regardless of the question asked in that message is never appropriate. Many realtors forget this and think I am too busy for that, and just forget they ever got the call, inappropriate . But please remember when a agent does stop and answer your call, or returns your call, and helps you with your questions be it a minute or a hour, remember them , pay it forward when you or a friend need a realtor , remember them, be loyal to them! Agents work for free most of the time so remember Full service Full time takes a lot of time, reward it. and if a realtor doesn't call you back or ever answer your call? Find a realtor who knows you are a important part of there success.
