Got Active Rain?  I would like to share with you another positive ActiveRain Real Estate Network story.  On Tuesday July 24, 2007 around noon time, I was on my way back from a family vacation in Newport, Rhode Island when before leaving the resort I remembered that there was a very nice real estate broker that I e-networked with here on http://www.activerain.com/ .  I contacted Linda Davis and I asked her if she was available today.  Although it was almost last second, Linda Davis made room in her busy schedule to meet me in person.  She notified me that she had an important Real Estate meeting in Phoenix and that she had to catch a plane so our meeting could only be about 20-30 minutes.  I put Broker Linda Davis's address into my GPS and I was off to meet with her.  As I pulled up to her office, I was impressed.  What a great office and perfect location.  I parked my car and entered her office to only be greeted with a friendly/warm smile of one of her agents.

The time was here, I finally got to meet Linda Davisin person.  We shook each others hand and even hugged one another.  Her office was fabulous and right away I knew that I was in a meeting with a proven real estate professional and a proven winner.  Thanks to Active Rain, our first meeting felt like we had known one another for a few years.  She was a sweet person who accepted me into her office and our appointment with open arms.  I felt right at home and our meeting was a very successful one.  We discussed how foreclosures are on the rise all over the country including Connecticut.  When you are a great real estate broker and you have years of experience in real estate then you are given an opportunity to list bank owned propertiesLinda Davis is one of the real estate listing agents for Countrywide REO's in her territory.  She currently has 2 Countrywide REO (Real EstateOwned) properties.  I told her up front that I know that she has been in the business for 30 years and that I'm sure she has a great working relationship with other loan officers or mortgage brokers so that I would like to become her primary Countrywide Home Loans representative for these Countrywide REO's.  When there is an interested buyer for a Countrywide REO, then you need to be pre-approved by a Countrywide loan officer first but you don't have to receive your mortgage through Countrywide Financial - Home Loans - Equity Loan Mortgages ....  Our first meeting was up quickly and she had to get ready for her business trip to Phoenix.  I was very pleased with our meeting and was excited to know that Active Rain gave me an opportunity to e-network with a wonderful real estate professional like Linda Davis which then turned into a face-to-face networking opportunity for the two of us.  We could have definitely met longer or discussed more but we both had to get going.  I had a 2pm appointment in my Norwalk, CT office and she had to catch a plane.  We exchanged business cards, took a couple of pictures together and embraced one another goodbye.

Carolyn Rzaca: Thank You!  Nothing is better than actual face-to-face networking and communication.  I remember when I was at Washington Mutual Bank in 2002/2003 when the loan officers there told me it was important to go all the way up to Dedham, MA to visit our underwriters/closers.  At first I did not understand why we had to meet them in person but after a while it all started to make sense to me, more and more every day.  I learned the mortgage business from ground up and I was mostly in the office as a junior rep and working on the computer/phones instead of actually being out on the field meeting new people and networking with real estate professionals.  Thanks for commenting.

Judy Cicalese:  Definitely great to meet you at the Trumbull Broker Open House this passed Wednesday on Driftwood Lane!  I was back there with the realtor yesterday and we had a positive showing!  Being in the business for over 5 years now and attending as many broker open houses in Fairfield County and as many public open houses, I'm starting to pick up on serious buyers and just window shoppers.  Judy, I was going to blog about our meeting as well so look for that to come in the coming days and hey, maybe even today?  I do have to get going and start my day though so it can't be now.  Thanks for your great comment.

 Very cool Nima, it's nice to see virtual friends turning into real life friends. I guess that's one of the unexpected benefits of online communities like Active Rain.

Marti Garaughty:  Thanks for dropping by and commenting.  I'm hoping for a GIANT Active Rain Party or atleast 3 major ones so the people in the midwest and west coast and east coast can attend.  That would be an incredible time.  I am talking ilke hundreds or even thousands of Active Rain members, that would be very neat.
