Connect the Real Estate Dots

Real Estate Agent with Value Added Service, 602-620-2699 SA5376460000

Yesterday while sorting spam emails, I came across a couple of emails that weren't spam.  In fact, they are the best kind of spam I could hope for!  The emails were from our REMAX.com site, sending me an email that someone wanted to see a couple of houses.  Eureka!  

 

Checking the addresses, I didn't recognize the street names.  But that's not because I don't know my area, it's over 400 square miles!  I've lived in the Phoenix area for almost 20 years now.  I thought maybe the streets were in a small neighborhood on the outskirts of one of our communities.   Taking a second look at the emails, I figured out why I didn't know the streets.  

 

A client sent me a request to see 2 homes in another state!  Immediately, my brain went to "who do I know in that state?"  After about 60 seconds on ActiveRain, I remembered who I know in that state.  I've since reached out to that agent and hope to Connect the Real Estate Dots as they say!

 

Connect the Real Estate DotsAfter I glean more information from my client here in the Phoenix area, I'll be able to send the full referral.  What a great feeling knowing that I have so many wonderful agents to connect and send referrals.  And the client loves that I'll connect his relative with veterans who know the ropes and will provide great service.  

 

That's a huge benefit to me!  Knowing that I have a wealth of agents at my finger tips.  I hope that others think of me that way when it's time to find someone in the Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Fountain Hills and Phoenix area!

So true.  In fact, I'm thinking about changing the name of this post to better reflect the situation! Thanks for commenting!

Hi Jan Green - One of the best things about ActiveRain is the ability to connect would be buyers with other agents we feel very comfortable recommending.  I know that would not be the case if I were not using it!  This is a great story, I am glad you are sharing it.

So true Peter Mohylsky !  I check several times a day to make sure I'm not missing anything.  And a lead from my company site is generally pretty good. This just happened to be a current lead that I'm working with and his father wants to buy in another state.  Thanks for commenting!

Yes, it is great when the stars come together   Kat Palmiotti !

So true Sheri Sperry - MCNE !  A huge benefit to us :) 

Exactly    Belinda Spillman !   I love that I can pick up the phone or send a quick email and to tell people "I know all the best agents!"

So true Endre Barath, Jr. ! A referral emailed me at 6 am, telling me to call ASAP.  I don't check my email at 6 am, but I did at 8 am and it was too late.  Argh!
