Agent: Yes, hi, I’m Claude Daly with Castlemont Realty, I see you’ve requested one of my real estate reports by text message. I was just calling to check if you were able to access your report just fine.
Lead: Oh…yeah….yeah…I texted about an hour or so ago…yeah I saw your report. Everything was fine.
Agent: Ok, great…just wanted to make sure.
I see you accessed my report on Home Buying Mistakes, were you thinking about moving within the next couple of months or so?
Lead: Yeah…both my husband and I currently live in an apartment and have been talking about buying for some time now. It’d be nice to have something bigger. We’ve checked out a couple of homes online but we haven’t seen anything that jumps out. But yeah, we would like to move in maybe 3 or 4 months from now.
Agent: (slight laughter) Oh, well in that case my report was just in time.
Lead: Yeah…well, it was helpful. You brought up some things in the report I didn’t think about.
Agent: Right on…well, I’m glad I could help.
Are you currently working with an agent?
Agent: Ok, I can probably help you out there……..and were you thinking about moving somewhere within the area?
Lead: Yeah, we both grew up here all of our lives and we would like something not too far, but we’re open to something within 15 minutes from here.
Agent: Not a problem, and have you guys been pre-qualified by a bank or mortgage broker or anything like that?
Lead: Ah, no…not yet.
Agent: Ok, well, it’ll probably be best to get you guys pre-qualified, that way you don’t waste your time looking at properties above or below your price range. We have a gentleman who can certainly help you out with that.
Why don’t we do this? I’ll have him call you later today (if that works with you) and get you pre-qualified and I can touch back with you tomorrow to get a home criteria and start emailing you homes that fit both you and your husband.
Lead: Ok, sounds great!
Agent: Ok, perfect! And is this an ok number to reach you?
Agent: Oh, and one more thing…can I get the spelling of your last name? I’m creating a reminder for myself about our talk tomorrow.
Lead: Yes, S-C-R-I-B-N-E-R. Scribner
Agent: Ok, well great talking with you Mrs. Scribner; we’ll talk soon.
Lead: Ok bye.
Agent: Take care.
