It's time to CELEBRATE another Success in the Rain Story!
A couple of months ago, a friend of Bill's at his day job asked for help finding a San Antonio agent for his daughter and son-in-law. At the time, we were just really getting started with Active Rain and blogging, but rather than following our traditional referral path and hitting the RE/MAX directory, we decided to use Active Rain to help us find the right agent for this young couple!
It didn't take long looking at the Active Rain agents in the San Antonio area to narrow down to Kristin Moran as a strong candidate. The fact that she also happened to be a RE/MAX agent was just a nice bonus!
We emailed her, and within minutes got a response back from her Blackberry that she was in a meeting, but would be interested and would contact us in a bit over an hour if that was okay? Keep in mind, about 7 am her time, and she was all over it! Impressive response time! The later phone conversation just confirmed what we already suspected.
If life were simple, this would have been an automatic, but the young couple had been given another name by a friend, so Kristin needed to win them over. Of course, we should have known there could have been no other outcome but success for Kristin! She won them over with her responsiveness and personality.
Shortly thereafter, the young couple came down to San Antonio, Kristin spent a couple of days house hunting with them and got them under contract and closed this month! They couldn't be happier, Dad was happy with our help, and Kristin was an ideal agent to work a referral! Did we mention the hand written thank you cards we got from her? One for the initial referral, and another post closing! We've never experienced anything like it!
So now, for the obligatory pictures!
Attempt 1, tried to capture the two of us with the check! My arm is NOT long enough to hold a Blackberry Storm II backwards and click the picture button on the touch screen, so you get this!
After multiple attempts at the first style, on to a picture of Liz holding the referral check!
And this? This was our dessert for a celebration dinner tonight! In honor of Texas, Liz had a steak, Bill had fajitas, and at the end of the meal, Mexican Fried Ice Cream that seemed as big as Texas!
Thanks again Kristin! We'd do it again in a second!
Liz & Bill
