How I manage to be in more than one place at the same time

First an email, then a text and a phone call, now a client

The Email


Sunday afternoon I got home after hosting an open house on one of my listings. Checking my email I saw one asking about some Tredyffrin Easttown new construction real estate I  mentioned in a recent blog post and video on New Construction in Berwyn.

The person had some questions, could I answer them? After a little clarification to make sure I was not stepping on another agent's toes I responded to her questions.


The Text


Then I get a text on Monday, am I available to talk. Of course.


The Phone Call


After a few minutes my phone rings and we get to talk. It was a wonderful discussion and we followed up with several emails on Monday and Tuesday and agreed to meet last night to walk through the property she and her boyfriend are interested in.

I sent an email swith a copy of my video on the Consumer Notice along with a booklet I share with potential clients on buying homes in our area. This explains the process and how we work with clients and what they can expect from us and what we expect from them as well.

She then sent me her pre-approval without being specifically asked, just from what she had seen and read.


The Client


We met last night at the home, I answered more questions, we identified several questions for the builder and agreed to meet later this week with the builder and their listing agent. During our conversation it became apparent she had watched several of the other videos about Berwyn as well, because she commented on them and how helpful they were to knowing what was going on in the village and how that was likely to impact property values in the village.

So whilst I was at an open house and then relaxing later, my videos were developing a potential client for me.  Another video did the work of explaining the consumer notice as well so when we met and I presented the form for signature there was no push back. Other videos made her comfortable that I knew what I was doing and knew the area and what was going on in the area. I managed to be in tow or more places at once doing more than one job because of video.

When things work as you hope they will it is such a rewarding feeling.
