No. Not actively anyway.   I am sure I will give some mental thought about some things real estate related but not where I am engrossed and taking time away from my family and friends.

No. It is a day for family, football, food and festivites. The rest of the weekend is also blacked out. If an agent has an offer, we will confirm receipt and ask for patience till Monday AM if possible, in case our client is also entertaining.

I will be at my daughters for Thanksgiving dinner, but my phone will be on, so I can take care of any Real Estate business.  I have had people call and couldn't believe they actually got a live person and say that I was their 5th or more call and all they got was recordings.  It's a great way to pick up new clients.  Do you answer your phone after hours, weekends, or holidays?

Absolutely NOT! Nothing can be gained by working on Thanksgiving. You, hopefully, wouldn't SHOW a home on Thanksgiving Day, no self respecting agent would answer his/her phone, you can't get any information from a lender, escrow or title person. That being said I had an agent show one of my listings years ago on Christmas Day. I was so saddened to see her being taken away from her family because a buyer couple could ONLY see property on that day! Absurd!
