Lenn,
 
We did settle today on the short sale at XXXXXXXXXXXXX, Pasadena. XXXXXX and XXXXXXX, that you referreCashd to me last year.
 
Purchase price was $299,000 and the referral was 20%.
 
I've submitted the paperwork to LNF accounting. The check will show up eventually.
 
Thanks for the referral.
 
Rich

Yes, it was last year. Lenn
 
From time to time, I forget about referrals I've made to agent friends.  Richard has called me every two to three months to give me status on this transaction and on one occassion it appeard it would not settle. 
 
Considering the myriad of barriers on the way to closing this short sale listing, I never expected a positive outcome.  I didn't count on Richard being a hound dog.
 
Nothing better than a bit of "found money".
 
This is the second longest listing referral I can recall.  I sent one to Katerina that took about a year.

Very cool!  It is amazing how few people are good at following up when referrals are given to them.  But this does not surprise me!  Enjoy your "found" money!

Kathryn.  The key is having honest referral agents.  I've had a few of the other type.

Tammy.  You bet.

Lenn- this is the kind of Active Rain success story I like to read... one that showed how 2 professionals can work together.
