I was Recognized at the Salon - Thanks ActiveRain!

By
Real Estate Agent with Regent Property Group 0480809

I took my daughter to get her haircut this weekend. I didn't think the wait would be very long since there were three stylist and only two people ahead of us... but I was wrong...

It was a long wait, and I also had Mr. Man in tow.  As Mr. Man gets fussy, he likes to be swung in his carseat.  That always causes conversation with people about how strong I am and don't my arms hurt, yadda yadda... I even had a client interview last week where I had to bring him, and Mrs Buyer kept trying to get Mr Buyer to swing Mr Man for me, but I kept telling him it was my work out for the day.

Anyway, I digress... as I'm swinging Mr Man, I start talking with this lady as I noticed she was wearing a Realtor jacket so I asked her who she worked with.  I told her I was also a Realtor.  She looked at me hard and said that I looked familiar but couldn't place me.  She listed off a couple of places, but nope.

Then, I asked her if she ever used ActiveRain. She said she did... and she looked at me again, to which I smiled. 

"You're at the top of the page!"  I blushed...

She said she reads my posts and likes what I have to say.  I thought that was nice. I didn't/don't recognize her even though her profile says she joined in January 2007. Why? She wrote 4 posts in all of 2007, none in 2008, 1 in 2009, and 10 in 2010.  She hasn't been back since September 2010... Why do I mention this? She's had 4 years to make herself known and she hasn't utilized the tools available to her.  She made a comment that her business was slow and all I can say is that I've had 7 buyer appointments in the past 10 days, and Landon loves showing houses!!

Thanks ActiveRain as this is just another example of how people recognize me around town!

I've been trying to make the name here in Austin as well. I still get surprised when people say they know my name "from somewhere"...

Additional Information

This blog is to help educate Buyers, Sellers and even other Realtors across the country.  Each market is different and the way Real Estate is done is different.  Austin Real Estate is completely different than Dallas, California and Florida and everywhere else in between.  Some times there will be other things besides real estate as I like to rant and rave as much as the next!!  Come back often!
