  Shameless Self-Promotion 

Leads to a Really Nice Endorsement 


I posted a link to my recent ActiveRain blog post on Facebook about having received multiple offers over list price on a new listing.  


One of of my nice clients whose home I sold two years ago commented on my having sold the home so quickly.  He wrote: 


"Nothing new for Jill.  Tell her you want to sell and you'd better start packing."


Some people may see it as a small thing, but I see it as huge.  The property I sold for this nice client who, along with his wonderful wife I came to consider as friends also sold very quickly with multiple offers above the list price.  


As a realtor, I am a service provider whose responsibility is to protect the best interests of my clients and provide as smooth of a transaction as possible.  I strive to provide value that outweighs what I get paid.


When a client voices their appreciation at any point, but especially years later, it makes you feel really good.  It was nice and it was genuine.  It made me smile and sit up a little straighter, too.

Ringing endorsements from past clients always put a smile on my face! There's no shame in letting others know what we can do for them so keep putting those posts out there for people to see!

Thanks Barbara Todaro.  It still feels a little awkward to shout out look what I did statements, but it's part of the biz.  There's no denying the recognition is really nice.  That it can lead to more business isn't bad, either.

Chris and Dick Dovorany - Thank you!  What you said is true.  When you get wonderful feedback, it gets you charged up to go out and do it again.  

Thanks Debbie Gartner.  My client's comment was unexpected and awesome.

There is nothing wrong with letting the world know you are successful at what you do, unless you have a lot of other people doing it for you.

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert - The comment was a total smile maker!  I'll keep putting the posts out there.  It makes me proud when someone speaks so kindly of me, but it also feels slightly uncomfortable shouting it to the world.  One day I'll get over myself.  😊

Thanks so much Wandanna Melliphant.  I really appreciate it!

Mike Frazier - I agree that word of mouth is huge!

Nice Job Jill!

I am not surprised to hear that they are still happy two years later, after all, you "strive to provide value that outweighs what I get paid."
