Amazing . . .I'm just going to say right now, I love my blog. So today I got a call on my cell phone from the 910 area code. I wasn't sure where that was, so I listened to the message. It was from a woman named Michele and she and her husband were going to be moving out to WA in the next couple of months. She provided no clue on the message where she was calling from or how she had gotten my name and number. So I made a mental note to call her when I got out to Yelm. After setting up my signs and getting the model opened, I checked my e-mail and lo and behold I had an e-mail from Michele. I then went on to check where the 910 are code originated and learned it was North Carolina. Now NC is home to Fort Bragg, and Ft. Bragg is home to Special Forces. I have a couple of SF clients and I figured one of them must have referred me. I had a meeting coming up and didn't have time to call her back, so I shot her a quick e-mail saying I'd call around 3PM her time. Well around 12:30 (3:30 NC time) I was finally done with my meeting and had a chance to call her back. She picked up and I introduced myself. One of her first questions was "You probably want to know where I found you huh?" and I have to admit I WAS curious. She went on to tell me she found me right here. In my blog! So Michele, if you are reading, and I suspect you are, thank you. This has made for a most interesting day, I'm still in awe about it. We chatted for awhile about what she and her husband were looking for and I agreed to send her a bunch of info on Pennington, and Yelm. So I'll put that in the mail tomorrow and get an e-mail off to her later today. I just couldn't wait until tomorrow to blog about this. It was too cool to pass up.
So now, about yesterday. I'm getting some flack from people about not writing much about my personal life here. Well to be honest, my personal life has been a bit dull lately. Since I've been back from vacation in August, I've been full steam ahead in my business life trying to make sure when I go on Vacation in November (Before you jump to any conclusions, these are the first two vacations I've had in nearly 3 years). So to be honest most of my personal time (when I'm not working until 9:30 - 10:00 at night) has been spent in front of the boob tube. Not very exciting. So anyway, yesterday my assistant and I met at the office at 8:30 and I got her going on my pop-by gifts. It's so cool to have someone to do this stuff now. It used to take a tremendous amount of effort and time on my part to get it done that I wouldn't do it. Now she just handles it. Very cool. While she was doing that, I was tying up some loose ends on a transaction that was supposed to be closing that day. I can't wait until her PC shows up next week and I can start giving her some real work to do. I'm really excited about this. The day before we went shopping for all my pop by gifts and I got all the cards printed out for it. Now next week, I'll be spending a couple days delivering them all. I've got 50 to do . . A whole lot more than the 12 I did my first year in Real Estate. ;-) I'm excited though, it's good to get out and reconnect with clients and see what changes they've made to their home since they've been there.
I know this post is a bit disjointed, but it's just whats coming today, so deal with it. ;-) Still need to get into the gym this week, hopefully I can drag myself out of bed tomorrow morning and get it done before my coaching call.
