“Asking for Testimonials Early On”
I know the rule of thumb is that you ask for referrals and testimonials at the end of a transaction. I never follow that thinking. I will always ask in the beginning of a relationship if the opportunity presents itself or during the process, but never at the end. For whatever reason, the end is just too late in my opinion.
My girlfriend was right, she told me having you handle the pre-qualification process was pretty easy. As I shared with you, I had contacted the bank my parents told me about and it has taken forever. It was three days and I still had nothing.
She listened to my frustration and gave me your contact info so I called you and within an hour I had my pre-qualification. We have lots of friends who will be home searching in the near future, expect lots of calls.
So, do you ask and if so when do you ask for testimonials and referrals?
