First Active Rain Referral Closed

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

Today I closed on my first direct Active Rain lead today. It was a short sale listing in Pleasanton. I'm very happy for the sellers because they have a lot of weight lifted off of their backs. This was a quick short sale approval in my opinion since there were two lenders and they were both taking a huge loss on the loan. The second asked for a lot of money and finally settled for less and the first was cooperating for the most part. We were able to market the home for 46 days before we went into contract and closed approximatley 28 days days after going pending. I want to thank Active Rain and my sellers for making this opportunity available.

Thanks a ton Russel, I truly appreciate it. Should I tell you about the Raiders game I attended last week when they played the Patriots?

Hey, Mike. After reading your comment to Russel, do I presume that you and he have connected on a Raiders level? No wonder he doesn't have time for me anymore -- LOL.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life -- make it a good start.

Brian,I made sure to send a complete package, and outlined in order what was being sent and it was expedited way faster than I thought it would be especially since there were two lendeers.

Hey, Mike.

Interesting that you went to that Patriots game. The last Raiders game I went to -- excepting those here in San Diego -- was a Raiders/Patriots preseason game that was played over in Stanford's stadium. At the time I was working in Lafayette and my company had about 50 season tickets for our Clients. No one wanted to drive to Stanford from Lafayette except me, but I couldn't find anyone to go with me so I went myself. That was 1994 I think.
