I liked your message. I think you ID’d yourself as the Pres. of your Co., I’m not sure…but if you did, there is some incongruity between that and your informal-sounding message.
I’m not a pro at outgoing messages, but you sounded trustworthy, and I think that’s good. To me you your message simply conveyed that you invest in houses, and can offer a quick purchase or lease. You also sounded easy to deal with, and understanding, which should be a plus, right?
Having said that, the suggestions I would make would be for you to rehearse your message. Have it down so you don’t falter. There are some places in the message where you pause, and seemingly have to think. Keep the informality, modulate your voice a (little) more, and tighten it up, add some confidence in your tone. Make it a little more brief. Do it all that while not changing your style, if that makes any sense.
You may want to drop the President part, if that’s in there, just your name might do, and your company name.
I think your message will eventually be great.
You might want to call other investors to listen to their messages.
IMHO, you did very well.
