When my phone rings at 7:00 pm at night, I vacillate between answering it or letting it go to voicemail. After all, who would be calling at that time of night? A call from Google maybe.
So tonight's call was a unique call. The caller had already bought a home . He just moved here from Maryland. So why was he calling?
He searched on the internet looking for someone to help him make his home more energy efficient. Apparently I'm the gatekeeper of that information, ,Green Vendor Site with over 100 contacts in energy efficiency!
If you search for a "green realtor" even though that's a trademark violation for the National Association of REALTORS®, the public doesn't know that. So I arrive front and center thanks to my online marketing and thanks to ActiveRain!
I was happy to talk to this new Scottsdale homeowner for over an hour about what he can do to make his home more energy efficient. He's going to call the neighborhood HOA board member so we can meet and I can potentially present my information to the entire neighborhood.
Moral of the story - answer your phone because you just never know who is calling!
