~My Addiction Finally Pays Off~

Thanks to Active Rain I have a new client!

I know those of you who have been here for a while know that by addiction, I do not mean drugs or anything "crazy" like that, but know that I mean my addiction to AR!

Since joining the AR network a few months back, I have followed the same routine every morning. I try to make it to the gym before my family wakes up, once I get my kids off to school I head over my office and start my day.

My day, of course, starts with logging onto Active Rainand reading and commenting on all the great posts I come across. I am still getting use to blogging, so I seem to be reading alot more than writing, but I am getting there.

Had I not been so obsessed addicted this wonderful real estate network, I may have missed my new client who just walked into my office looking for an agent to show him a few  homes. He already had a list of homes in hand from the internet that  he wanted to see. Unbelievable.

We only looked at a few and put an offer in on one later that week. We are hoping to close later this month.

I was originally going to wait until the house actually closes before writing about it, but decided to go ahead regardless of the outcome. Had I not found stumbled across Active Rain, I think I would have missed this opportunity.

My rountine before was to drop my kids off at school and then work out and then, maybe stop by the office, just to check in.

So, again, thank you AR, my addiction finally pays off.

Your Home. My Priority. Since 2003
