I guess we all know how difficult a busy RE/MAX_Office can be and ours is certainly no exception. It has to be a tedious job coming into a Real Estate office daily just to handle the phones. As Agent’s I guess we all get so busy it is easy to overlook all the wonderful things these hard working people do for us to keep the machine running.
That’s why it was such a shock to us all that morning when we came into the office and found that Sandy ( dear dear Sandy ) had quit to pursue other career opportunities. ( Translation was offered more pay somewhere else ) I didn’t even have a photo of Sandy after all these years and all the parties and gatherings. I felt like a schmuck.
The following weeks were tough. Temporary staffing were sending people out daily and sometimes 2 per day.( I told you we are a busy office.) After 3 months of this I was greeted one morning by Becky. I had been a little late getting in and apparently she had already introduced herself to the rest of the group.
” Hi I’m Becky, your new Receptionist ” she said. Before I could stop myself I blurted out ” For how long? ” Becky was quick to respond. Yes she had heard about the last 3 months and all of the turmoil that it had caused in what normally was a smooth running operation. ” Get used to this Face ” Becky declared . Yep she definitely intended to be here for the Long haul.
” Great ” I exclaimed. I didn’t know what Becky’s skill levels were but I presumed if Management had hired her, she must have had a good resume. Besides , anybody was better than a constant daily change of temporaries . With that Becky promptly sat down at her station and I went into my office to get a little work done.
I guess it was a good three days before I got back to the Real Estate office again. I was eager to see how Becky was fitting into the job. To my surprise I was met by a Young lady who introduced herself as Jenny. I was just starting to form the question when the Broker came around the corner so I asked him. ” Where’s Becky? ” I don’t know he said she went home for lunch and she never came back!
Till this day we have never heard from her again. Talk about Over Promise and Under deliver!
