C Tann-Starr's Outside Blog

Introducing A. Jin, my client who found my Active Rain blog and hired me from Canada

The lovely A. Jin in the main conference room at REMAX People Realty

A. Jin contacted me the day she and her lovely family planned to drive to New York City from Canada. After relocating to New York State and settling in Brooklyn on Friday, she made arrangements to meet with me the next day. I picked her up Saturday and we, accompanied by one of her cousins, spent that afternoon and most of the evening together having mad fun chatting about our families and getting to know each other. She discovered the Active Rain Real Estate Network from using search engines. Googling her targeted area lead to my blog. She looked at other New York agents before deciding to select me as her Realtor.

BTW, I am ranked number 19 on the New York Sate home page and number 3 for Queens County. TannStarr.com links back to my three Active Rain blogs and I am very happy people enjoy my blog posts enough to trust me with their housing needs.

It's official. We signed a Buyer's Brokerage agreement today and I must say I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my new friend. BTW, she has a wicked sense of humor and is fluent in French! I got to enjoy some very interesting Ear Candy today (LOL).

I even got to play phone tag with Susan Mangigian and Melody Botting between real estate assignments. A. Jin got to chat with Susan while we were in my REMAX office and guess what? We are going on an AR Road Trip together in a couple of weeks to hang out in PA with the lovely Mangigian family. Susan, AJ and I are going to collect some PA Eye Candy together. How cool is that?

The only question left to settle is do we travel with or without the little minions. Hmm... I could use some girl time... Maybe I'll keep you in suspense until I post the pictures (LOL).

Thank you, Active Rain. I would not have made a new friend and gained a wonderful new client for my firm if it were not for your Real Estate Network. You guys (and Claire) ROCK!

Thank you Hal. I'm looking forward to showing AJ around NYC, upstate and a few other interesting places. Who knew I'd be taking clients on AR road trips - I certainly didn't (LOL). She was very happy to be a part of my blog so we going to be sharing a few of our activities together with you all as we run about getting comfy. I love having fun at work! :-)

Awesome news - I'm waiting for ANY prospect contact from AR.  But honestly if I never do, I learn a great deal here and am happy even if there was no possability of potential prospecting.  Prospects just "sweeten the deal"

Posted by Stephen Kappre, Helping You Home (KW Hometown) about 12 years ago

That's such a cool story - especially the part about all going on a road trip together.  I'm always amazed at the power of AR to connect people.  Have a great time!

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz about 12 years ago

OH how fun and I'm soo jealous - I want a New York Buyer - fairs fair - and although those driving holidays.....my word girl.......'have A/R Blog will travel'.....should be a bumper sticker for your car!

Didn't get any painting done...:-0  didn't even get my crayons out  :-(.......spent the bulk of the day - getting rid of nasty critters in my computer......and no I did not feel like Helen of Troy!

Posted by Liz Moras Migic, Chilliwack, British Columbia - Realtor about 12 years ago

You two ladies have fun!   I hope she'll give you permission to write about your home hunting escapades as you go along.  

Congratulations to you both on finding each other :-)

Posted by Kris Wales, Real Estate Blog & Homes for Sale search site, Macomb County MI (Keller Williams Realty - Lakeside Market Center) about 12 years ago

Thank you, Robert. I appreciate your kind words.

Liz, too funny! Have A/R Blog Will Travel... I think you just created a very cool tee shirt. Sorry about not being about to get any painting done, but you will. Take your time and schedule it in when you can. I did some sketching and will be starting a few paintings this week. Will keep you posted in your blog.

Kris thank you. She's very kind and doesn't mind my blogging about her at all. Finding AJ a home may turn into a little mini-series (LOL).

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

Wonderful-----I also had an email from someone in Toronto over the weekend who is looking for a villa.  I love to hear success stories.
