Very Cool. Picked Up A Facebook Client From Playing Online In Social Media...

I have to say the last thing I expected was to open my Facebook account and have a client hire me in my in-box (LMAO).

Another client (who periodically peeks at my Active Rain blog and personal website) passed my name along when she mentioned she was thinking about buying a house. Seems my new prospect was very excited to discover what I have been up to as a retiree. I'm having a very perky conversation over there right now and will be taking my officer buddy shopping tomorrow (LOL). Yup. We used to work together on Riker' Island and she found me a couple of months ago on Facebook. I haven't seen her in five years. I'm looking forward to meeting with her tomorrow. 

Gotta love social media... Who knew? I didn't and I haven't been blogging an entire year yet. 4/16/2009 is my AR one year anniversary as a blogger. Never did it before I joined here, so THANK YOU ACTIVE RAIN. ;-) 

BTW, one of my new clients that I met in the street  the other day just put a binder on a two family new construction. How cool is that? Very!

Social media ROCKS! Long live The Actives! ;-)

Social media rocks C and so do YOU!! Congratulations on all this business coming your way.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) almost 12 years ago

Way to go, C!  But, I knew you were quite the talker...just reading your posts.  Congratulations on work well done! 

Posted by Suzanne McLaughlin, Sabinske & Associates, Realtor (Sabinske & Associates, Inc. (Albertville, St. Michael)) almost 12 years ago

Hey girl!  Good for you!  I picked up a rental from a client on facebook.  Who knows if he would have thought to refer me otherwise... hopefully, but I know that stopping in and saying hi and asking him for business didn't hurt.  It was only a small rental, but it's his sister and she just got her phD and won't be renting forever... maybe even buying next year!  xxoo

Interesting to hear.. good for you.

Thank you, Gary. :-)

Thank you, Suzanne. :-)

Hey lovely! How are you? Loved the eye candy in your garden. I'm overdue for a visit, Susan, darling. We have to go out and eat someplace yummy! Will be up for a while and shall e-mail you later. I'm playing Mafia Wars and Sorority (of all things). Phone tag, you're it! (LOL) ;-)

Thank you, Greg. Very interesting turn of events indeed (LOL). :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Good for you... I loved your story about te guy stopping you on the street.  I've thought about that many times as I drive around my area.  Our faces are like little logos.

Posted by Sally Dunbar, Fair Oaks Realtor - Fair Oaks Homes for Sale (Lyon Real Estate, Fair Oaks CA (Sacramento Area)) almost 12 years ago

Sally, that is very true. I'm glad they added our pictures next to our comments. It's turning out to be a very useful bit of visual advertising worth its weight in virtual gold. :-)

Hi Carolyn... I am not surprised.  You work hard at cultivating your business through social media and it is GREAT to see it paying off for you!  Way to go!

Posted by Steve Shatsky almost 12 years ago

How fun you get to catch up with a friend and show homes to a prospective buyer!

Posted by Mandi Perkins (Pioneer Title Agency) almost 12 years ago

Congrats - this will be the first of many.  You are so organized, relevant and real that the floodgate is about to open for you.

Posted by Kate Bourland, Onlilne Marketing Mobile Marketing (Marketing with Kate) almost 12 years ago

That's pretty cool, Carolyn.  Nice job!

Posted by Jesse & Kathy Clifton, Retired (Jesse Clifton & Associates, REALTORS®) almost 12 years ago

this is a grat testimony. I've had a listing appointment and now a new buyer (actually a former client ) from Facebook

Posted by Janice Roosevelt, OICP ABR, ePRO,Ecobroker ( Keller Williams Brandywine Valley ) almost 12 years ago

Great work C.  There is no one who can socialize like my Sista from another Mista!  have a wonderful holiday if I don't get to speak with you before.  Are you heading south at all?  We have canceled our trip for a lot of reasons but I am trying to sneak in a trip to Gettysberg next week.

Posted by Paddy (Patricia) Pizappi, Real Estate Associate Broker Hudson Valley NY (Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty) almost 12 years ago

Hey Carolyn that is so very cool. Enjoy catching up with your friend AND selling her a home!

Posted by Barb Szabo, CRS, E-pro Realtor, Cleveland Ohio Homes (RE/MAX Trinity Brecksville Ohio) almost 12 years ago

Awesome, love it and when we play we get results if done right.

Posted by Missy Caulk, Savvy Realtor - Ann Arbor Real Estate (Missy Caulk TEAM) almost 12 years ago

That is amazing!  I can't believe you are just coming up on a year of blogging.

Posted by Ann Allen Hoover, CDPE SRES ASP e-PRO Realtor - Homes for Sale - AL (RE/MAX Advantage South) almost 12 years ago

Thank you, Steve. That really made my day. The wee ones are out of school for Spring break so I may take them with me so she can meet the little minions. :-)

Mandi, I am looking forward to it. Mikey is ducking the gab fest (LOL). I'm trying to gt him to come with us but he'd rather hug his pillow and commune with the boob tube. I have to find a great place for lunch so he can reconsider. :-)

Thank you, Kate. Truth is more anal than organized (LMAO). I owe M Rome a picture of my desk. You'd freak out if you saw how many files I have open and piled on it right now (LOL). Busy, busy, busy... very happy to be swamped with work.  ;-)



Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Thank you, Jesse. :-)

Janice, very cool. :-)

Hey Sis! Wanna go on an eye candy hunt together? The wee ones could use a good romp and I am up for a road trip. I need to find somewhere interesting to hang out near the GWB. I figure I can scope the area coming and going if we visit (LOL). I have to see if we're making the run down to SC like originally planned. Hubby may not be up for it. We're still in mourning over his Mom so a lot of projects were put on hold...  Paddy, I'd love to come upstate if you have some time. Your minion nephews have grown a few inches. Up for a play-date? Lunch? Dinner? Event? Let me know. ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Thank you, Barb. This should be very interesting. We have a lot of catching up to do. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Missy, very well said. It's nice to get paid to play (LOL). I've had a stellar week. Hoping for more good news from an interesting firm that has been purchasing bail-out foreclosures. I may be developing a website for them. Seems they need a blog (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Ann, I love this place. My bay-bays are the icing on the cake. I can not imagine my life without you guys in it. I love my virtual family.  ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

Go get them girl!!!! Got to love the Rain!

Posted by Jeannette Neerpat, e-Pro Coral Springs/Parkland Real Estate (CondoDomain.com) almost 12 years ago

Jeannette, it's my fave place to hang out on-line (LOL). :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 12 years ago

C - That's awesome.  You go!  Once again, I have to say I'm awed by your involvement and stamina in the the social networking and "tecky" stuff.  You've got the knack and it's obviously paid off for you. Laraine

Posted by Laraine Shape, Selling Cincinnati...one kitchen at a time (Comey & Shepherd Realtors) almost 12 years ago

Thank you, Laraine. My added bonus of for today: a person in the street gifted me a professional video tripod while I was in the bakery with the kids. We were playing in the park and decided to get munchies. This guy was walking by, saw my Sony tripod on the table because we were seated at the window and just started talking to me through the window as if he knew who I was. I thought he was selling something and motioned I couldn't hear him so he came inside (LMAO). Turns out he wanted to give me a tripod that was never used. He asked if I would be there for a few minutes. I said yes, we're eating muffins. He promptly rushed out the door and seven minutes later I am the happy owner of a MIDAS. Yay! That puppy was still wrapped in plastic with the tags on it. Of course that inspired me to take the shorties out and collect some eye candy. We have video and photographs that need to be edited (LOL).

Did I say I love this place? I LOVE ACTIVE RAIN.I am sooooo happily addicted. :-)

I've been having so much fun now that I am back doing my turtle runs. The Midas is on the left and the Sony is on the right. Very cool. I always buy Sony. I have a thing for Sony, Nikon,  Alesis and Korg but a Midas is nice. Black aluminum is sturdy. :-)

Little Sister - Great job my friend I took your advise on some sponsoring, get up the good work and don't be a stranger!


Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz almost 12 years ago

C - That is wonderful news, you certainly put the effort into your online community and it is paying off.

Posted by Maria Morton, Kansas City Real Estate 816-560-3758 (Platinum Realty) over 11 years ago

Thank you, Maria. Turns out I'm catching up with a number of law enforcement buddies now that I'm fooling around over there. :-)
