I met a nice lady at open house. I sent a thank you note after the open house. I'd send a calendar once and year and we'd chat for a few minutes annually.
Seven years later, I listed and sold her home.
Yes, sometimes it absolutely works that way. A current buyer has been receiving my newsletter for many years and finally called me. It's lovely when that happens :)
Most of our clients call us again when their next need arises.
This happens - I always stay in touch with them.
i try to keep in touch with every client i have ever talk to even if i did not do i deal, i do this to try to get referrals from them and it works. an my persistence usually get me a deal with them at some point. every new touch can be a potential client
Just recently a potential seller we'd interviewed with contacted us at almost the 3 year point. Other than continuing to send them our newsletter we'd had no other contact in the interim. We're currently looking for the right builder for their new house and then putting their existing home on the market.
Yes, we have had new buyers and old new buyers for previous sales.
David Barr - a few I remember - and a listing and few buyers. As long as you keep them in loop.....they like you, it's just they may not communicate that to you until the time arrives....
I've had a few get back in touch just recently that I'm now working with.
Yes. I keep in touch, and if I lose touch, I'm not hesitant to reach out & reconnect. I have a loan set to close this coming week as a result of reaching out after losing touch for a couple years.
I have had buyers and sellers that contact WAY before they were actually ready, and some did finally going to closing.
I am seeing this a lot as the foreclosure group from 4-6 years ago get their act back together again.
Yes, I get past contacts re-connecting all the time. Occasionally it results in a sale.
Hi David -- yes, this has happened often over the years. The end result does not always lead to a sale but there have been both seller/buyer transactions come after years of staying in contact via email or direct mail efforts.
