This month's Active Rains Challenge is Share the Love hosted by Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist, and Rocky Dickerson
I have made so many wonderful friends since 2008 on Active Rain
Elyse Berman is a wonderful person and a good friend to me over the years
Just the other day when talking on the phone we found out we were even closer than we ever imagined. It is "A Small World After All"
We have been talking online and on the phone for at least eight years. The first time we spoke I mentioned my sister and her having moved to Delray Beach in a blog post. Next thing I knew my phone rang and it was Elyse Berman, PA . She wanted me to know she had moved to Delray from New York and if my sister needed any help getting adjusted in Florida she could help. How sweet was that? My sister had already lived in Florida for five years maybe more and I thanked her for her kindness. We ended up chatting and really hit it off
Through the years we continued communicating not just through blogging but talking on the phone. We talked about family the weather politics. We both loved pets so we also talked about our pets. Elyse Niche is pet-friendly communities. We discussed so many things over the years. Although we have never met in person I feel as if we are very close friends
Last year one of my closest friends was going to sell his condo in Florida and of course, I sent him to Elyse Berman, PA I do have another very close friend, not on Active Rain who is in Real Estate but she was nowhere near this property and thanked me for the opportunity but said no. I could have looked in my company referral roster but I had confidence in Elyse and the seller loved her
The seller and Elyse talked and he was very happy with her. He was flying to Florida and would meet with her. Papers were signed as he was very impressed with our Elyse Berman, PA. In the interim Covid 19 happened and still, she managed to do a fantastic job.
It is wonderful when we send our clients to people we know who do a wonderful job and they exceed what we recommended. Getting a property to settlement during that difficult time was not easy and she came through with flying colors. My friend was very happy with her and happy with me for referring her to him
When changing companies I desperately needed to find someone to do a website While speaking to Elyse she recommended a fantastic web designer Charra "YourSiteNeedsMe" to do my new website HelpfulHannah.com as we were talking I started to talk about my sister, She asked where exactly did she live. I said near that real good deli "The 3 Guys" I think that is what it is called? After telling her my sister's last name Not only did she live in the same development she lived right up the street and knew my brother-in-law. They walked their dogs together. We started to laugh. What a small world!
