A Facebook Accidental Success...

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

I recently joined Facebook after attending one of KW's classes taught by Bill Kennedy(Thanks, Bill!).  I was wondering whether it would be worth the effort, even though it is kinda fun.  Well, since I am a transplant to the area, I decided to look for "friends" I had attended High School with and see if anyone I knew had moved to this area as well.  I found a woman who was a few years behind me (didn't really recognized her name and assumed it was a married name) and invited her to be my "friend". I also mentioned I was in real estate and let her know I always appreciated referrals.  She accepted my invitation and said that as a matter fact, she had a friend who was looking to sell her house!  Now, the funny part... after we looked at each others profiles, we found that indeed we both attended South Park High - mine in South Park, PA and her's in Beaumont, TX!! I will still be introducing myself to her, face to face, and following up with the referral...

Facebook is a great tool. Not only for business purposes but to reconnect with long lost friends and to keep everyone abreast of what's going on in your life.  I really enjoy it.
