I’ve Been A Bad Realtor!

Oops! My Bad!

bad realtor loses referral

I can’t believe they didn’t think of me!

The other day I was talking with a former client and friend. We had worked together on a real estate transaction some years ago, and since then they have been a source of referral business here and there. As he and I were talking about real estate, he made the comment, “Well, you and John don’t sell real estate in our area anymore. You focus on more high-end real estate in Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe.” {sound of screeching brakes!} I couldn’t believe what I heard and I was panic-stricken! “No!” I said. “That’s not true! We sell all kinds of real estate at all price points,” I corrected!

This conversation made me realize something I should always keep in mind as a realtor. If I don’t keep myself and my business in front of my sphere of influence, my past and present clients, my friends…anyone that I come in contact with in day-to-day encounters, they can all have this same sort of misconception about my business and what I do. So, I decided I should do something about this.

Just to be clear: we sell real estate of all kinds in San Diego County! We sell all price points-from $200,000 condos to homes and estates worth millions! We sell from Oceanside south to Chula Vista. We sell real estate from the coast inland to the country! Where ever work takes us, we sell real estate there! It is safe to say that probably 90% of our business can come from past client referrals. I would never want any past client, who is talking at work with someone interested in buying or selling a home, NOT to think of me as a possible agent with whom their colleague can work! If you liked the job we did for you, if you trusted our experience and style, then PLEASE, pass your friend our name!

My bad for not keeping this Golden Rule of real estate forefront in my mind. I will do my best to never let that happen again. Please, think of us!
