Just curious. Anyone make themselves available to their clients 24/7? (Meaning a client can call or text message you.)

If you value your sanity, DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!

I get periodic emails from the Oeschli (correct spelling?) website and he says everyone else is a 24/7 broker and that I should be, as well, in order to compete. I didn't think that was true, but I thought I'd throw it out there to see what everyone else had to say on the matter.


For what it's worth, I agree with you Starka, a 24/7 broker is a bit much.

I agree with Starka, you would go nuts if you couldn't escape your clients.  Im using call forwarding.  When Im out of my office my phone rings to my cell phone.  I have caller ID on the cell phone and if I think the call is important i will take it otherwise it goes to voicemail.  A great example happened tonight.  I have a customer who is rolling over her IRA and she finally got her check.  She called my office I saw the call on my Cell and now im meeting with her tomorrow At 4pm.  Something to look into.
