Active rain success story - does blogging really work? You decide

By
Real Estate Agent with Dominion Fine Properties SA582226000

I just got off the phone with a potential buyer who found my post for an open house today in the Boulders.

 

Great, but, that post was from 8/1/2010

OPEN HOUSE TODAY IN THE BOULDERS, CAREFREE, AZ/NORTH SCOTTSDALE AZ

 

 

But,

 

I asked her if she was working with a Realtor® and she said no, she was the type that liked to just go to open houses and when she saw the right one, she would buy it.

 

I explained that many homes are not held open and she's probably missing out on some great homes.  After asking her where she was looking and her price range, I told her I'd send her all the listings that met her needs in that area.

 

She's going to look them over and get back to me on the ones she wants to see this afternoon! 

 

Oh, and she's a cash buyer and already sent me over the bank letter.

 

So, last year's blog drew 3 buyers I worked with and, now, almost 6 months later, another potential buyer.

 

Yippee!!!  It's working.

 

Thank you Active Rain for this great format.

Great news Juli!  You never know what will trigger a call and blogging and ACTIVERAIN will certainly never let you down!  It sounds like she has already chosen you since she sent over the bank letter.  I hope she finds something with you soon!  I suggested this so hopefully others will see that you can never give up!

Jayne, thank you so much.  I know when I first joined AR, I had no idea what the potential was.

Gary, you're so right - and it has to start some where.  Here, on AR where most people are so encouraging, it's a great place to start.

Thanks, Ritu.  At first I was skeptical - not any longer.

Thank you, jane, Michelle, Ann and Marilyn.  The afternoon was perfect.  The buyer found two she really liked.  Her husband is overseas for the week and will be back late Friday evening.  We've scheduled those two to show him next Saturdy afternoon.  Wow, all from blogging.  Wish me luck!!!

Thank you, Karen.  I am so excited to have jumped into the 2000's and the internet and gotten to know about more than just turning on the computer.  It's so neat to learn more and to know that every thing I'm learning here on Activerain from supporters like YOU are actually starting to pay off.
