Our First Active Rain Success Story: Kudos to Kristin Moran!

It's time to CELEBRATE another Success in the Rain Story!

 

A couple of months ago, a friend of Bill's at his day job asked for help finding a San Antonio agent for his daughter and son-in-law.  At the time, we were just really getting started with Active Rain and blogging, but rather than following our traditional referral path and hitting the RE/MAX directory, we decided to use Active Rain to help us find the right agent for this young couple!

It didn't take long looking at the Active Rain agents in the San Antonio area to narrow down to Kristin Moran as a strong candidate.  The fact that she also happened to be a RE/MAX agent was just a nice bonus!

We emailed her, and within minutes got a response back from her Blackberry that she was in a meeting, but would be interested and would contact us in a bit over an hour if that was okay?  Keep in mind, about 7 am her time, and she was all over it!  Impressive response time!  The later phone conversation just confirmed what we already suspected.

If life were simple, this would have been an automatic, but the young couple had been  given another name by a friend, so Kristin needed to win them over.  Of course, we should have known there could have been no other outcome but success for Kristin!  She won them over with her responsiveness and personality.

Shortly thereafter, the young couple came down to San Antonio, Kristin spent a couple of days house hunting with them and got them under contract and closed this month!  They couldn't be happier, Dad was happy with our help, and Kristin was an ideal agent to work a referral!  Did we mention the hand written thank you cards we got from her?  One for the initial referral, and another post closing!  We've never experienced anything like it!

So now, for the obligatory pictures!

Attempt 1, tried to capture the two of us with the check!  My arm is NOT long enough to hold a Blackberry Storm II backwards and click the picture button on the touch screen, so you get this!

Just the Two of Us

After multiple attempts at the first style, on to a picture of Liz holding the referral check!

Success in the Rain

And this?  This was our dessert for a celebration dinner tonight!  In honor of Texas, Liz had a steak, Bill had fajitas, and at the end of the meal, Mexican Fried Ice Cream that seemed as big as Texas!

Thanks again Kristin!  We'd do it again in a second!

Kristin, Late on a Saturday night posting, so easy to have missed it!  Surely you have better things to do on a Saturday night :)  We're really happy everything worked out so well!  And the picture of the fried ice cream was less than 2 hours old by post time!  We've had a good run of featured posts, some you hope for, some are just a nice surprise!  This one making the front page was one of the surprise ones!  I think the staff likes our approach :)

Congratulations, it is great to hear such positive news, as I wish your local media would pick up and spread the word.  Unfortunately the media dwells on negativity.  We need a local paper called "The Good News" or at a minimum an insert.

Don, Don't know if you remember a paper called GRIT, used to deliver it as a kid.  Nothing but good news and human interest stories.  Don't know if it's still out there or not.

I just love it when people KNOW how awesome my sister, Kristin is.  I can brag too, huh?   Thanks for the referral and to Kristin who ALWAYS goes the extra mile with her Clients and her Referring Agents.

I'm proud your my sister!

Okay, okay...enough of the sappy comments!

Sheila, Of course you can!  We knew you two were working together, just all our interactions were with her! 

And a certain number of "sappy" comments are appropriate! :)
