This has been an incredible year working with a wide variety of clients: buyers, sellers, investors, first time buyers and, above all, repeat clients.
Here are some examples:
1. A close friend of mine ended up being a buyer. I kept telling her about the homes I was showing another buyer, but in the end, that buyer could not commit and we are still looking. However, there was one house I personally really liked and my friend asked to see it. And fell in love with it and bought it. In a strange way, I consider this a "repeat" client.
2. I sold one listing to a couple who was represented by another agent. Then I got a second listing down the road, and this couple showed up on the first day and wanted to buy it for a family member. Again, in a strange way it was a "repeat" client.
3. Another client, with whom I have already done two other sales, asked me to list a third property. We are closing at the end of this week. And we are already talking about another deal. That's a straightforward repeat client!
4. Still another client whose family has given me several listings, contacted me to liquidate several of his properties, one at a time. So far I have sold two for him this year, and we are talking about a third. Interestingly, another family member is buying a listing of mine right now, but through another agent. She didn't get the message in time that she could have come to me directly, but that's ok.
5. Another repeat client has given me half a dozen listings during the past couple of years. In fact, we are negotiating one now with a buyer, and I believe I will get another listing shortly. Even though this is my biggest repeat client in terms of numbers, the dollar value is low for each, but I don't care. I totally appreciate any and all real estate business I get from this company.
Each year, my repeat clients funnel more and more business into my brokerage pipeline,
and I am very thankful for this.
