“Stop Selling, Let your Past Clients do it for you”

      “Stop Selling, Let your Past Clients do it for you”



I received a referral from a Florida Realtor but after a short conversation it was obvious that the woman she referred was hesitant to work with someone a thousand miles away.


I let her know that I completely understood and recommended that she Google my name and also check me out on LinkedIn. This was the response I got after Tina did her homework:


Hi Joe,

I just wanted to let you know I did spend some time researching you this weekend!! I was so impressed with everything I read. 

You seem like such an honest person and really want to do what is right for each and every customer.. That is so my personality as well!

I’m ready to have you do my mortgage even though you are 1000 miles away. I will contact you later today! Hope you had a great weekend!

Good morning Joe Petrowsky,

Once again those good on-line reviews help overcome an objections of knowing your personally or the distance factor. Congratulations on another referral!

Joe,  Ignorance is not always bliss ... is it?  So much out of alignment thinking and beliefs out there in the world.  Thankfully, this one was cured. Well done.

Great suggestion to let her get to know your on-line self.  Sounds like she is ready to rock and roll.

Hi Joe --- I can understand her hesitation but our friend Google(and any other search engine) will quickly show Tina and others why you are a terrific mortgage partner.

Way to go, Joe. You got this buyer. Now I hope everything else goes smoothly. 

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) over 2 years ago

Joe that was a good approach.  If you had tried to hard sell her, she would have gone somewhere else.
