“Offer Accepted”

“Offer Accepted”



We are very excited to get the opportunity to work with you....


No matter how many times I work with a first time home buyer and they let me know that their offer was accepted, I just know how excited and nervous they are. These folks are paying $1650 per month for rent and their mortgage payment will be nearly $400 less. It just doesn’t get any better that that, but actually it did.


As soon as I set up the appointment to do the mortgage application, I then asked “Who else do you know that needs my help?” Sure enough, I was immediately rewarded with a friend that was also going to be home shopping over the next couple of months. I will also ask again during the application.


The Realtor set up a purchase agreement for 60 days because of all the paranoia about TRI, but we will be done long before that time.


Who else do you know that needs my help?

Good morning Joe Petrowsky,

A good question to ask through out the transaction!! If you don't ask you won't know!!

Good morning Joe,

If you do not ask you will never know the answer.

Keep up the referral network and you have inspired me to ask more.

Make yourself a great day.

Posted by Raymond E. Camp, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson Greater Rochester (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) over 3 years ago

Good morning, Joe -- that's always a great question especially when you receive such a positive response.

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena 818.516.4393 over 3 years ago

It's all in the asking ... right Joe?  When we help others it is only natural that they want to reciprocate.

Posted by Kathleen Daniels, San Jose Homes for Sale-Probate & Trust Specialist (KD Realty - 408.972.1822) over 3 years ago

It's asking for the "order"....reminding them at the peak time how they can help someone else as you have helped them.

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Realtors - Luxury - Divorce (EXP Realty 414-525-0563) over 3 years ago

Your testimonials are genuine! I couldn't think of anyone better than you to make dreams come true!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) over 3 years ago

It's so simple, but most of the time we forget to ask "who else do you know that needs my help?".  And of course you REALLY helped them acquire their first home with a great mortgage which lowers their monthly housing output.

Sounds like a no brainer for these buyers.  TRID has certainly slowed down our process.  One of my lenders says TRID spelled bakwards is DIRT

Hi Joe Petrowsky ,  Great plan!  You don't receive if you don't ask. Referrals are King.

Posted by Larry Johnston, Broker,Friends & Neighbors Real Estate, Elkhart,IN (Broker, Friends & Neighbors Real Estate and Elkhart County Subdivisions, LLC) over 3 years ago

We should never lose an opportunity to get a referral especially from a very satisfied client

Joe, so was the $400 a month savings with or without the savings from their mortgage interest deduction on their taxes?

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 3 years ago

You have an excellent system Joe, I love hearing about your success stories.

Have you learned to Yodel yet Joe??  It may be another source of leads.

Joe great job in saving these first time buyers $400 a month, but even a better job in asking for the referral.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) over 3 years ago


Hearing that the offer has been accepted . . . . is like music to the ears.

Good luck and success.

I'm setting out my closings for 45 days. I think this stuff with TRID will all work out. 

BTW...thanks for sharing another great story.
