03 Jul Was I unprofessional in this scenario?
I get a call at about quarter to 8 in the morning from a "no caller ID" number. Now, I know one of my broker's clients, whom we're friends with, sometimes calls from a "no caller ID" number.
So I pickup the phone and say "Hello" in a regular tone, not necessarily in a positive or negative tone. The caller says something along the lines of "I'm looking for a realtor and trying to get a hold of a realtor". In my half asleep/half awake state I say "yes" (I realize it was a poor response lol) and then the guy gets all mad and says "wow not even a professional greeting? I think I'm going to use someone else" and proceeds to hang up.
I still have no clue who this caller was. The only thing I could think of was that he was a FSBO or expired listing that I sent letters out to a while back. If this is the case, I feel terrible I missed out on a potential listing. On the other hand, if he was that confrontational about something so simple, maybe I didn't miss out on anything good.
What are your thoughts on this situation?
