Active Rain is the best Referral tool yet!!!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker SELECT

I just wanted to share with you a referral I placed from using the Active Rain Network.  My sister has a vacant lot in Del Rio Texas that she needed to sell.  She asked me to find her a realtor and my search started on Active Rain.  Sure, I could have gone through our referral office and they would have found someone in Del Rio Texas but this is family we are talking about!!  I wanted to make sure that I had a little background on the realtor that would be handling this listing.  Unfortunately there were not many realtors to choose from that are AR members in Del Rio but I did find Rita Rosales from Starr Realty!

She was very quick to respond to my referral and although it took some time for paperwork to get back and forth we are not only getting the property on the market this week but, she already has a buyer!!!

I will let you know how the contract negotiations go but I just wanted to let everyone know that if you need a professional, hardworking realtor in the Del Rio Texas area contact Rita Rosales.

Thank You Rita, You have made this a very smooth transaction....

And since I am promoting Rita, if anyone is in need for a realtor in the Greater Tulsa Area you know where to find me...jk...

Good morning Kelly- Active Rain is great for learning about people so you can make referrals based on what their profiles say.

Great Job Kelly....  Looks like Rita is on the ball there in Del Rio. Keep us posted. You know I will keep you in mind if I have someone coming your way and I would hope you would do the same. (jk) I'm sure you will.
