ActiveRain Referrals Rock!

By
Real Estate Agent with Value Added Service, 602-620-2699 SA5376460000

Just yesterday, my friend texted me with the exciting news that her offer was the winning bid in her home state of Oklahoma!  She lives here in Cave Creek, Arizona, but her daughter will be attending school in Oklahoma.  She tasked me with finding an agent to help her.  

 

ActiveRain to the rescue.  Scouring the list of agents in the leaderboard made it easy to find an agent in her desired city.  After contacting the agent, he explained his wife is also a loan officer.  Normally a conflict, he explained that others have given her high marks for her lending and customer service.  

 

Armed with this knowledge, I reached out to my friend.  The connection was made and in 2 days, the house is now under contract.  It's a real charmer and completely remodeled in an excellent area.  Because my friend is from there, she knew it was in a great area.  With the agent's quick thinking and working diligently, they are the winning bid and the house is hers!  How wonderful for them! 

 

This is not the first time that has happened. Looking at my white board, I have 3 others in the works. across the US.  Giving and receiving referrals is a great way to run a business with warm introductions.   Having great relationships with other agents makes it easy to refer clients.  We both know that clients come first!     

 

Thanks to this network of great agents, my client thinks I'm a hero!  Thank you ActiveRain!

Great news like this needs to be shared, Jan. I'm glad to hear things are working out for your friend. There's no doubt AR rocks for referrals, inbound and outbound.

Thank you so much Jeff Dowler, CRS !  I have several of these going across the country and it was high time I posted a kudos to AR.  This one was so fast that it propelled me to write!  Thank you for reading and commenting!

Oh, you are making my heart sing, Jan!

I have sent and received so many referrals from this platform and have never been let down! It is one of my top places to send Referrala and I feel so blessed to be a part of it.

 

I sent to relocation buyers in the past month for over $20,000 worth of Referral $$ and cannot tell you how pleased my clients were on both fronts.

 

There’s just no place like the Rain!

It is a nice picture! And great post about it. 

I would like to attend the AR meet in my area. Who is in charge? :) Michael Jacobs 🥳

Inna Ivchenko - there hasn't been any official AR MeetUps in a while.  When Brian England has visited from Arizona he has met up with some members.  I will try to remember that you want to come next time - likely in the early Fall.  Would you be interested in coming?  Our past visits have been in Pasadena, Long Beach plus he usually stays in San Diego.

I invited Inna Ivchenko to our last meetup Michael Jacobs but she wasn't responsive.  Next time we get together we will have to try inviting her again, haha.

Sorry for the confusion Inna Ivchenko .  That is an old photo from 2015 I think.  We haven't had a meet up in a very long time.  It would be great to re-start them!

Definitely Sam Shueh That is an old photo of an old Meetup. We didn't have one.  I was just referencing the relationships between AR agents.  Thank you for chiming in!

Good for you Dorte Engel ! Connecting clients with seasoned agents is a great way to put your clients' interests first to get a sale accomplished.  Referrals are the biggest compliment an agent can receive,, IMHO!

Had to come back around Jan!  Referrals have been the life-line of our business since day one and I'm thankful that I figured that  out early on.  I've had many referrals over the years from fellow ActiveRain members and given many referrals to other members across the USA and CA. ActiveRain is an awesome community!

I sent a referral to my friend Debe Maxwell, CRS and it was a huge success. I'd love to send someone your way Jan, and definitely will if I know anyone moving to Scottsdale. On the rare chance you have anyone headed to Madison or Brandon, MS (Jackson area market), please think of me! :)

Good for you Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty !  You bet, you're on my radar as well. It's always a good feeling knowing your clients will be handled with the utmost of care.  Communication with this agent has been wonderful and I'd do the same for you!  

Thank you Pat.  If you get a chance, check out this map of the Phoenix Metro Area.  It helps to know when the city is NOT Scottsdale where someone is looking to buy or sell a home.  I recently received another referral for a home seller in Sun City!  I work all over the valley, not just Scottsdale.  All the best to you!
