CLOSED! Another Happy Buyer...Happy Seller...Happy Wife...Happy Referring Agent...and Yes...I am Happy as well!

Scenario: 

1. A young Denver computer specialist relocating with family to Kearney.

2. He is originally from about 25 miles away from Kearney but family does not know any local agents or Brokers.

3. Cousin is an RE Broker in Colorado Springs but does not have any Kearney area referral connections. Cousin lists and sells Denver home.

4. Broker belongs to a group of agent/brokers in the Springs and asks for any recommendations.

5. Old Broker friend I worked with for years suggested he contact me!  

6. Sold the the young couple a fantastic home in the $425k range and paid out a 25% referral fee.

Moral of the Story:  Always keep the bridges to your past clear and open...as there is business on those old dusty backroads!!

Until Next time...refer to your SOI whenever possible!!

Hi Mike McCann - Nebraska Farm Land Broker very, very smart move.  Keeping in touch with ones SOI from years ago can produce lots of great referrals.  tThat just makes total sense to me!

Well done, Mike- everyone knows someone who lives in a house, condo or apt, and who is renting or owns. They are all in a position to need your services. Keep the bridges open.

I love those! I'm listing a house on Friday from a couple I showed 7 years ago who ended up buying a FSBO! They remembered me and voila! Congrats on keeping those bridges alive!

Years ago, a broker who  mostly built and sold spec houses asked me if I wanted to help a couple buy a property.  They looked at his house, but did not like it.  I paid that broker a referral fee and helped them buy a home.  It is now about 12 or 13 years later, and I just sold them their 3rd home, and have their 2nd home listed.  They have been a great resource for referrals, but more importantly, they have become good friends.   I think their referral count is now 8, and I may possibly be doing a 4th tier referral early next year!
