My radio show is called ALL ABOUT REAL ESTATE, and it is. But yesterday, I had a different kind of show. It was about real people and a real deal and was very well received—more calls, texts, messages, and emails after the show than ever. People like real stories about real people, and that is what real estate is all about.

The show was how a seller got to me through a Real Estate Manager in Pennsylvania. And both the manager and the seller were guests on the show. We talked about how the home was listed, the two impromptu open houses on the first day the property hit the market, the full price contract, the home inspection, and how the seller and I met for the first time at the settlement table on

Valentine's Day.

By then, we were already good friends.

It is amazing the number of friends I have who were former clients.  There is often a bonding process that goes on during a transaction.

Myrl Jeffcoat Clients turn into friends, agents turn into friends, lenders and title people turn into friends. For sure...

James Dray That show was spontaneously planned the day before when I reached out to Megan and Lauren. The rest was just the three of us on a "phone"  but on live radio.

Kat Palmiotti Yes, I am finding that out. HOpe to be doing more of this kind of show. Each and every transaction is different and can be told by the buyers and sellers different from agents.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  Touting my listings and/or talking about COVID 19 were not subjects I wanted for the show. Looking forward to expanding this idea.

Hi Margaret:

Real estate IS about real people and real situations, not stuff conjured up for glitzt marketing ads and videos. And people are far more interested in what the reality is, not some scripted TV show. Good for you! I'll have to listen in!
