The Place For GOOD Referrals

This week we had an outstanding presentation by, Paddy Deighan MBA JD PhD,  titled 'Something old is new again." The Zoom was about going back to marketing yourself and the importance of referrals. He talked about self-assessment; yes, I already took the survey.

Regarding referrals, I posted in the Q&A that I needed a listing agent in California, along with the county and zip code. I also asked about a Florida referral.

Before evening, I had placed two referrals, one in California and one in Florida. All because of the beautiful ActiveRain connections.

If you need to refer or be referred, you are at the right place!

Hope you found a good agents to handle your referrals for a quick sale. Your California referral seemed to be in a pretty remote area.

Excellent that you were able to place those two referrals. Whoo hoo!

By the way, I took the survey also and the summary information was totally right, even about what makes me impatient. haha.

Kat Palmiotti, I had to laugh at the survey. It even told me I didn't enjoy balancing my checkbook. :)

Margaret it is amazing to me how many sales people do not ask for referrals, but somehow expect to get them.  It is simple, if you don't ask, you don't get.

This would make a good sign reminder:      "It is simple if you don't ask, you don't get."

My early days in ActiveRain were my best years for referrals. I think I got four referrals and I dished out two others. What I really appreciated was being able to talk to the agent I wanted to refer before I gave them the referral. It was mind blowing how people would not answer my phone calls when I would use my company Referral Network but when I called a ActiveRain member I would get a call back within an hour of placing the call to their voicemail. I long for those whole days again Margaret 🙂

That sounds like it was an interesting survey.

This place has changed, but it is still a darn nice place to be.

I always found the platform to be more effective to giving a referral as the blogs they posted were transparent. Not to mention that an AR member almost always answers their phone as you know so well.
