AR Really Works....another success story!!!!!

Mortgage and Lending with Cherry Creek Mortgage Illinois Residential Mortgage License LMB #0005759 Cherry Creek Mortgage NMLS #: 3001 NMLS ID# 158606

Just logged on over the weekend and had a pleasant 13th to be exact...since joining AR.  I was contacted via e-mail over the weekend.  This person contacted me via Active Rain.  Here's the transcript of the text....the names taken out to protect the innocent:


I was searching the internet this evening looking for a few mortgage lenders to talk to and I found your life coach/mortgage lending website. Please let me know if you or one of your people might have time to talk with me tomorrow. I took the day off work to get out and get talking to some banks/mortgage brokers about options.

My husband and I own a duplex in such and such, IL. We rent out one side and live in the other. We are looking to relocate to Kane County in the very near future but we are not sure whether we will need to sell our current property in order to do so. We would like to keep it as an investment property but I need to run the numbers with someone to help us understand our options.

If you are available please give me a call tomorrow at your earliest convenience, 815-555-5555.

Suzi Homebuyer

Needless to say, I e-mailed her back later that evening. She responded promptly and we met in person the next morning.  We had a great meeting.  Thereafter I was able to refer it to my number one realtor referral partner.  She's not a member of Active Rain, but she's seriously considering it now.  When it rains it pours....  I have to tell you.  I love this homebuyer.  They're the awesome hardworking salt of America, and I'm blessed that they have selected me to do their loan with.

THANK YOU ACTIVE RAIN.  This is now my 13th deal.  I'm officially at a Baker's Dozen.

Larry, did you get your Realtor friend to sign up yet?  I would have made that a condition for the referral :)

Congrats on the AR lead!

Good job, Larry. It's very refreshing to keep this in front of me - one of the reasons why I network on AR.
