I knew I Could Trust Him, Richard Iarossi, But I Didn't Know He Was A Hound Dog!!

Found in my e-mail box a few minutes ago courtesy Richard Iarossi, an ActiveRain friend in Crofton, MD.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
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.
 
Courtesy, Lenn Harley, Broker, Homefinders.com, 800-711-7988.

Lou.  Always nice to get a check.

Debb.  Two good pieces of good news today.  This short sale closing and a new home buyer's loan commitment.

Good news is always...well, good news!

If I could only make money of rental referrals, I'd never have to work again!

Rich does ROCK!  Glad he's a hound dog too--nice to know when you're referring out a short sale because so many agents either put them on the back burner or just give up on them.  Congrats on that mailbox money--there's nothing better, is there?!!

Michael.  You read my mind.

Thomas.  Referrals for rentals don't mount up to much do they.

Cindy.  So am I. 

Judi.  Yes.  Yes it is.

Eric.  He's a lovely honorable pro.

Pat.  Thanks.  Rich is a pro.

Michelle.  ActiveRain members are the best referrals.

Debe.  We can't put short sales on the back burner.  They are a considerable percentage of sales.

William.  Why do I need an iPad to use sitting at my desktop computer??

Never meeting, but having spoken to Richard, I would expect nothing less!  Without honest collaboration companies would dry up.

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!
