My story starts with a Trulia lead from an Arizona buyer for a home, not even my listing, in WI. Two months after the lead, we actually met at the property, wrote an offer and prepared for he and his wife to move to WI. Job plans changed and we cancelled the offer, he returned to Arizona, only to realize how much he hated Arizona summers.
At 10:30 one evening, I receive a Trulia lead on my phone. It is the same couple from Arizona. They were interested in buying a condo I had listed. The condo was on the market for almost two years so it seemed almost ridiculous. He visited a month later, showed him the condo, wrote and offer and prepared for a closing on what would be their second home. Arizona in the winter and WI in the summer. During his time in WI, he developed a relationship with the seller of the condo and they become golfing buddies. My husband and I also spent time with him and his wife, developing a friendship that lead to many visits and even vacations together. Now, two years from that original lead, my husband and I are traveling to Arizona to vacation at their home.
All of this, because of Trulia Lead. Thanks Trulia......you aren't just building my business, but also buildng on my life.
