Susan Wisely Forest (Keller Williams Realty, Mclean): Real Estate Agent in McLean, VA Susan Wisely Forest (Keller Williams Realty, Mclean) said about 11 years ago,
"I work extremely hard for each and every client. One situation that stands out is when I was in a situation just recently where I was one of 4 contracts. I tried hard to advise my clients on providing the cleanest contract to help them win while working to create a positive interaction with the listing agent that had constant communication. As we all know, we as the agents can only do what are clients are comfortable with regarding price and terms but we did our best. Then, I received the call from the listing agent that said they were not ratified yet but were accepting another contract. I asked her to wait, don't sign anything, let me speak to my clients again. Called her back immediately after speaking with my clients and we ended up getting the deal. This deal had technically fallen apart but I did not give up for my client and helped them to see, a few more thousand in the scheme of the loan was peanuts and they did not want to loose this home. Everyone was happy..... especially my clients who got their home!."

"I am not your typical ActiveRain blogger. I lack systems and tracking skills and am working on that as my business grows at rapid rates. Why is my business growing at rapid rates? All thanks to ActiveRain! I don't cold call, I don't pay hundreds of dollars on pay per click advertising and I don't belong to a BNI group. I blog, simple as that. I take time each week to blog about my market, my new listings, my sales and local businesses. I get noticed on Google by consumers and other agents alike. I've started classes in my area to help other agents blog and have built a lot of relationships on a national level thanks to AR. I have taken referrals, given referrals and had tons of emails and calls from consumers calling on blogs. How many lead to sales? I'm not sure because my tracking is weak, but I'm working on it and have no doubt in my mind that I owe most of my success thus far to ActiveRain. Thanks ActiveRain!"
