Good Karma Coming Full Circle

~ Good Karma Coming Full Circle ~

 

I have past clients that I have sold a few homes to and they have referred me to several family members and friends.  I would call them terrific "A" clients. 

Good KarmaLast fall they sent me an email that they had a new employee moving out from the Chicago area and wanted to know if I could contact her and help her find a rental here in town.  The new employee wanted to eventually buy a place, but would prefer to rent first, until she got to know the city.  So, as a good will gesture, I was happy to do this for them. 

I met their new employee, Jessica, on Saturday.  I had several rental properties scheduled for us to view.  It was the 5th property, The Breakers Resort Rental Properties in Denver, that she fell in love with.  We had to wait for over an hour to meet with a leasing agent.  But, Jeffrey was pleasant, extremely patient and helpful.  He took his time with us.  Answered all of Jessica's questions.  Offered suggestions on different floor plans. (The community had 44!)

Jeffery took us on a golf cart to view the community, the lake, several of their 6 pools, 2 of their multiple club houses and so much more.  He really sold the community, not just an apartment.   When we got back to the leasing office, we talked some more.  Jeffery wanted to know how Jessica and I knew one another.  I explained how we were connected.  He said that I could receive a referral fee of up to half of a months rent for bringing Jessica to the community. 

Wow!  This was unexpected.  This is not the norm for the Denver area.  I have been selling residential real estate for almost 19 years here.  I told several agents of my rental referral surprise.  They were all just as surprised as I was.

I'm going to look at this as good karma coming full circle!

AR., MO., or OK. I can find the home for you.

Eventually if you keep putting out good stuff, good stuff will come back to you.  Apparently you had put enough out there to get some back.

That is pretty common in my area and the commission for the agent can be ad much as one months rent.  Very cool.  Good karma indeed!

What a wonderful surprise for you!  You're absolutely right, though - you put positive out, you get positive back (sometimes it just takes a while!).

Great job, Dawn - helping a new person find a rental in an area that's new to them is a great way to develop future clients.  It allows a person time to find where their personal areas of town will be based on their interests after they have had a little time to get acclimated.  And, to get a referral fee on top of it - a bonus.

Dawn, that IS good Karma...I'll also show rentals when referred by past clients especially when I know the new clients situation wanting to rent for a while first.  The half month rental as commission sure makes showing rentals more attractive.
