Over the past two years Justin Dibbs has been a subscriber to my active rain blog. We have talked many times on the phone and brainstormed on what works and what doesn't with regard to what works and what doesn't in the blogging world. He primarily works the Ashburn, Leesburg, Loudon County Virginia area and as many of you know I list and sell homes in the Lake Ridge Virginia area.
Well, he contaced me one day to inquire what I thought about Exit Realty and did I like working there. I shared with Justin. It is not like any other real estate company I've worked with before. I am a career REALTOR© with twenty years experience. I previously hung my license at Re/Max for five years and at Long and Foster for 10 years. I wish I had joined Exit Realty a decade ago. I would be retired by now! What I like, is everyone ( and I mean everyone) shares information, and helps everyone else. The office environment, and training is nothing you've ever experienced in real estate. It's awesome. I shared with him the Exit Video and my blog post why I joined Exit Realty to help him understand the entire concept..
That's when he said and I quote:
" I am not going to make a decision to move to a company based on residuals. Take that out of the equation ." That's when I said to him.
Justin, I can do that, however are you telling me you are willing to give up a retirement account and benefits for your wife and children if something were to happen to your, as well as an additonal $30,000 or $40,000 even $50,000 a year in additional income. I think you are saying NO, before you KNOW the fact...you might kick yourself a few years from now. Do the math! "
On April 1st 2012, Justin emailed me he had decided to join Exit Gridiron Realty in Manassas Virginia. Exit Gridiron is located within walking distance to the Manassas Park VRE Station and they have an amazing office in the heart of the new Manassas Park Virginia live and work shopping area.
Welcome aboard Justin.... I'm sure you will find that EXIT REALTY is a wonderful company to not only do business, but to grow your business and thrive. Personally I look forward to referring my Loundon County Virginia buyers to you. I have a few that are looking for golf course views and over 55+ communities. I know the Ashburn, Leesburg and Haymarket Virginia area have many golf communities to choose from.
A Big Welcome goes out to Alicia Utz of Lake Ridge Virginia.Alicia Utz is a brand new residential REALTOR© and has decided to join Exit Choice Realty in Woodbridge Virginia. Alicia is one of my past customers who contacted me when she and her husband saw a home I was advertising on MilitarybyOwner.com and one that I blogged about. That was back in 2009.It was during the winter holidays and my blog post was titled The Best Presents Are The Ones You Give Yourself. How Would You Like a Main Level Master Bedroom Home?
They did not buy that home, however asked me to help them purchase another home in Lake Ridge Virginia. So when she called a few weeks ago and asked. "Peggy would you be my sponsor and help me get into Exit Choice Realty?" I was thrilled to say yes. In fact there is a very good chance Alica will be joinging our real estate team.
Welcome and Congratulations to you both on your decision to join Exit Realty and I look forward to seeing you both grown, thrive and prosper in 2012 and for years to come.
