I have been corresponding with several clients via e-mail for the majority of this morning. Many of these e-mails are really G-mail conversations ,the ability to string the e-mails together into one converstion helps me to keep the transaction moving forward. If I can't remember if i informed someone in the transaction about an event or occurrence it is very easy for me to track. I am constantly forgetting to update my Top Producer database every time I e-mail or call someone , so the g-mail is my safety net.
I am sure you are wondering why I didn't just pick up the CELL phone and call everyone on my list today and I thought about that as well. Then I went through my list of clients for the morning, many are First-Time Homebuyers. Talk about being a small world !
My first client is in Ghana , he is working there for the next six weeks and is reviewing properties that were auto-e-mailed to him from our MRIS database. He saw one that he wants to make an offer on and requested I show it too his brother.His brother will video it and upload him a copy.
Client #2 - Is traveling to Damascus , no not Maryland , but Syria , and the seller has countered his offer and I have e-mailed it to him to counter or accept based on our e-mails conversation.
Client #3 - Has just been shipped out to Iraq, and he has additional orders and documents from his commanding officer that need to be added to his "Short Sale" package.
Client #4 - Is visiting family members in Japan and showed them pictures of the two houses that she could not make a decision on. The family has helped her pick one and she wants to make an offer. Thankfully her family helped her to pick the RESALE which is move-in condition vs the REO which needs alot of work.
A new Buyer has contacted me from Germany , they are being reassigned to this area and want to correspond with me via SKYPE. Needless to say I do not know what that is nor do I know how to use it , but that will be todays project.
With all the concerns we have about with Global Economy , Global Warming and Global Relations it made me stop and reflect on the one most important factor of being a Realtor. It is all about the people we service and the other ones involved through out the whole transaction. Because at the end of the day everyone wants a HOME to call their own , for their themsleves and their family, no matter what language they speak.
So my fellow "Rainers" how do you market/ or communicate to your International Client base ?
