So today I was doing my daily reading. All of a sudden telephone rings. I picked up the telephone and we start talking. The person said that they saw my profile on Active Rain. ( I was very happy to hear that -Finally somebody have found me. Take my picture off of the milk cartoon ) Happy only for like less than fifteen seconds? Why? The person was a telemarketer from one of those Referral Relocation companies. I forgot the name but he said that he was going to e-mail me some more information but he never did. ( If you all want to know,I will try to see if there is a way that I can find out )
He talked about their program. Why didn't I hang up the telephone on him? Well! I guess since I don't want nobody to do it to me. I do a lot of cold calling and get hang ups sometimes. He said that they are not a Real Estate Lead Generation Company ( I think he must've discovered how I feel about Real Estate Lead Generation Companies by reading one of my posts ). He said that there is no set up fee and you can cancel the contract whenever you want. But? ( I knew there was a caught )they charge a $59.95 monthly fee and 19% of your commission if the referral closes. What! Are you kidding me? So I asked him "What if for some reason I don't get no referrals from you. Do I have still have to pay $59.95 that month? He said yes. What. I felt like pulling my hair.
Only problem is I don't have no more hair to pull. I mean,I don't know about you but I am not one of the heirs to either Warren Buffett,Bill Gates or Carlos Slim Helu estate. ( Then again,I could be. I mean who ever would've thought that Barack Obama and Vice President Dick Chenney are relatives ) I don't have no money to give away. Heck,I don't have no money for me yet alone for some company that I don't know or have not even heard of. But I have thought about looking into relocation referral companies . So I want to know,do you or know anybody who uses relocation referral companies? And if so,is it working for you? Please let me know. I don't want eliminate a way that I could probably end up bringing me business. Thank you in advance for your comments.
