Sometimes you just have to step out of the Social Media web world and interact with your Active Rain friends in the real world.
Like today, I had a morning appointment to show some townhouses in Belmont Bay in Woodbridge, Virginia. Knowing that my friend and fellow RE/MAX agent and Active Rainer Cindy Jones lives and works in Belmont Bay, I gave her a quck call to see if she was available for a cup of coffee after my appointment.
Cindy said she'd be holding an open house all afternoon at the condos she represents there and I should stop by for some coffee and a chat. So, after finding my clients a beautiful golf villa overlooking the 16th hole (we'll write a contract this evening), I decided to stop by and see Cindy.
We've been chatting for the last hour, and right now as she shows some potential buyers around the condo model, I'm hanging out in the sales office firing off this quick post.
A few weeks ago, I similarly visited Pat Kennedy at an open house she was holding in Arlington.
Poking people on Facebook, tweeting back and forth, and commenting on each other's posts is always great.
But... seeing your friends in person is even better.
