Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

It's A Small World

small worldThe world is ever smaller.

This week there was a possible listing referral posted for my market on Facebook.  The person posting?  We have mutual Facebook friends, including two people I've known for quite a few years who are prominent in the real estate industry.  That friendship started here in ActiveRain.  They've not blogged here in years, but that foundation between us was established long ago.  So I mentioned to the poster that we had mutual friends and they could vouch for me.  Now I might not get the listing, but those two can give me more credibility than the "fan clubs" in the Facebook referral group that give thumbs up after thumbs up to an agent based 50 miles away who has only sold 3 houses in Cincinnati MLS, EVER.

This morning I showed a house to two of my buyers.  The owner?  Someone I've known for quite a few years from my engineering world.  While the home wasn't a perfect fit, it was pretty close and they thought seriously about writing an offer.

And about four houses away was a buyer I'd helped buy last year, but had never met in person.  Sure, we'd met over those Skype video streams that led to her family's purchase, but we'd never met in person.  So after the showing we got that in person meeting.  Unfortunately it had to be a brief meeting because I had to scurry off to show a couple of patio homes.

And again, a small world.  Mr. Buyer is an engineer.  He and his wife have lived in some of the same areas we have.

The world is small.  We've got to look closely, who knows what we'll find next?
