Alameda County Tax records shows that a client of mine from 1999 sold her Fremont Niles home in 2004 without me as her real estate agent. I was the real estate agent who helped her buy the Niles Canyon home back in 1999, but we had lost contact after a few missed tries to stay in touch. When I saw that she sold her Niles home in Fremont, I felt bad. Turns out, the tax records are incorrect.
Recently, I received a text to voice line from a Zillow app. Something about selling her house. It was quite jumbled. After some quick digging, I realized it was my long lost client who now needed to sell her home in Niles Fremont. She must have typed in Jeff Pereyda, real estate agent in google and "pow" there I was, now a real estate broker. She was so glad she found Jeff Pereyda, Real Estate Broker http://www.tricityhome.com, rather effortlessly in fact.
So, after 15 years, she simply googled me. That says something nice about her. I also must have done something right in 1999.
Try this cool google aplet that searches for you. Maybe someone will use it to reconnect with you some day soon.
