I got a google voice number. It goes to voice mail every time, so I never get bothered by calls while I'm at my full time job. I get the voice mail from my smart phone and I can call them backs, using #67 will block your phone number from the person you call. They never get my personal cell phone number. Voice mail gives them the chance to calm down, if they don't leave a message I don't call them back, this is something they quickly learn even though I tell them this upfront. I have a gmail account for the property for applicants, but I let tenants know that I don't check that email address unless I'm screening for new tenants so they should never leave email there, always call for emergencies or mail repair requests. I plan on using erentpayment for payments so no more giving out my home address. There's a lot of unstable people out there and no limit to what some will do if angered.
