I try to respond to calls and emails even if it just to turn them down. Don't think everyone would though.

I return all calls and emails within 48hrs. Amazing how many people tell me I am the only one to get back to them.

Often when I say I'm too busy they will ask to be put on the list, even for a small half or full day.

Works great when there is a scheduling conflict on a larger job, or rain and I can call and fit them in.

Re: Do You Return ALL Calls?


I reply to all calls and emails, in particular the project inquiries that come to me through Houzz which is the platform I run my business off of. And it's not just to be polite; speed of response is one of the components of their ranking algorithm so I make it a practice to "down tools" the moment a project inquiry comes in, and I respond literally within a minute (and almost everyone replies "thank you for responding so quickly!"). Still ranked #1 out of 5000 Toronto GC's listed on Houzz so I must be doing something right.

NO!!! I never return phone calls. WHY??? Because I answer my phone and there is no reason to have to call back.
