Lane Realty at Lake Sinclair, We give you options... you decide

I took a class this morning and whenever the teacher would get off topic telling jokes or give a us a break I was checking emails on my phone.  I have several deals in various stages of negotiation so making sure I check for updates when time is of the essence is important. I was also making sure that any potential buyer that signed up on my website got a quick response by forwarding it to an agent in my office.

I have to giggle at the imagination of the people who sign up for a search but use fake information.  It's really humorous sometimes.  I've had Elvis, Santa Clause, Imma Nottellyou, and today was Helen Wait.  Yes, I giggle right in my class. Out loud.  Good thing the teacher was telling a stupid joke. 

Of course I always wonder WHY people do that, why sign up with fake information.  If you don't want to get email updates you can simply use my other Full MLS search for Lake Sinclair that doesn't require any information. However if you would like to save your search on Lake Sinclair and get updates of new properties in your price range you are welcome to register with your email address to get updates from us. An agent will be in touch with you by email or text to let you know we're here to help you whenever you're ready.

We do  not share, sell or give your email address to anyone.  One simple click can unsubscribe you at anytime in the future. We simply do this because we have buyers that like getting instant updates.  We have other past buyers who enjoy continuing to watch the market. We have people who sign up that have lived here and are perhaps thinking of selling. 

So you don't have to give us a fake name.  Just use the other search.

I get the same thing Tammy. I often wonder if I should just delete the fake people but I haven't so far

Noah Seidenberg I've had someone who started with a fake name and email buy a house more than once...  But if they include swear words in their name or email then I delete it.   And if it's really vile, I block their IP address.

Great post!  I can appreciate your post because I just signed up with my office to receive leads and had training on the site today.  We were cracking up over old fake names.  Great that you send buyers to your site, no name needed :)

Jan Green I get it, when I am out browsing for that new car, appliance or even when I was shopping for roofers a few weeks ago I didn't want to have to give someone all my info. I'm browsing.  So I like options.

It never ceases to amaze me that people use such lack of creativity with their fake information.

Oh, this is something that gives us a laugh daily!  I always hate that they don't register - I want to 'prove' to them that we're not going to do anything but, HELP them!

I think people just get into the routine since so many sights grab their information and begin the deluge of junk emails to their inbox.
