Same here Judi.

I sold two homes last year to folks that were living and buying in counties 70 and 90 miles from my home office.

Both are wonderful to work with.  I knew that going in because I had sold them their present homes.   In one case it was their third purchase with me.

That kind of loyalty will inspire me to make the drive. 

In both cases, I had not heard from them for many years, but when they need real estate, they call me.  "Hi Lenn.  Are you still in real estate?"

You gotta love those folks.

Carol.  It is wonderful indeed.

Debbie.  I do love it.  I do.  I rant into a couple at the gym a couple of months ago to whom I sold a home in Lovettsville about 4 years ago.  Thank goodness they were all smiles.

Joe.  I love past clients.  They trust me and I trust them.

Very cool.  And I understand why they called you.

Where are the photos?  Where are the symbols and cartoon faces?

By the way, yesterday Frankenstein got an 11 and 15.  She was very disappointed with the 11, having never scored under 13.  That shows her that things have to be worked at!

I'd post the photos, but, well, you know...

Jay.  She should be thrilled with an 11.  I see grown men go out and shoot big fat 0s.  We don't yet even know what the sight picture for the gun she's using is. 

Send me the photos by e-mail.  I'll post them.

Brenda.  Thanks.  The feeling is mutual.

Great to hear from past clients isn't it? You are their first choice! On the photo thing, the only computer I have that will post pictures is windows 8. Neither explorer or google chrome would work for me.

Lenn- were we moving back to the DC area, you would be the one I'd call.  BTW- I almost didn't place any photos in  my weekly post today.  Gr-r-r-r-r-r.

Kathy.  Thanks.  Photos?  I know a few folks who are not posting because of the photo issue.

Bill.  I have no plans to go anywhere.  Well, I just returned from 1.5 hours at the gym.  That'll help.

Sarah.  Indeed and I'm very easy to find.  I've had the same 800# early 1990s.

The only thing better than a referal is a repeat client. Keep it up!

Lenn, those are the type of clients we all wish we had a lot more of.  They will check with us first before they will go anywhere else.

It saya a lot when previous clients come back looking for you first when they are ready to move.

Lenn, while I prefer to work my county, I would definitely go out of my way to help past clients. Even if it meant a long drive.

Oh the pipeline is so important. The work you do for people is a thing that the customer does not forget. Making good relationships is what life is all about. It just makes me feel good.
