1st ActiveRain Lead

By
Real Estate Agent with ERA Henley Real Estate

Well all the time spent blogging and commenting has paid off.  Today I got my first phone call from someone who found my blog online.  What a great day it was and what a great feeling it was to hear someone that appreciated my work.

work

I guess it is something I have been waiting for but I never expected a phone call like this.  I was thanked over and over for the sacrifices my family has madewhat I have done for this countryand the service I provided for free in my blogs.  To think all of that thanks just for writing about what I do.  It was GREAT and brought a smile to my face. 

                                                                                                          smile

Needless to say I will be working with this client very soon and they are a military couple.  I love working with military couples as I am military myself and I know what they go through.  soldierI just want to say thanks to the ActiveRain community for all of your help and I hope this is the first of many clients that find me here.  For those of you still waiting on your first, I am living proof that in just 2 short months blogging has brought me business and if your patient and diligent in writing it will bring you business too. 

                                 thanks <<<<<<<AR this is for YOU!!!

I had my first home inspection just 9 days after started to blog. I will admit, however, that it might have been more luck than anything else because it was a military person moving from Fort Sam Houston in Texas to here in San Diego, which has a huge military presence. However, since then I've gotten six more inspections and 19 marketing & business clients.
