    on the phone - introducing yourself

    hi, I am wondering how to introduce myself when making a phonecall. Let's say that Mr Smith left me a massage on my voicemail.

    'Good morning. It is Lucy Jacobs speaking. Can I speak with Mr Smith? '

    Is it correct? How to avoid repeating a verb 'to speak'?
