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!
After 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!
