If I should get business from being on Trulia, that'd be great, but that's not one of the major reasons that I answer questions here.
My main goal is to find Leads and turn those Leads into Dead Presidents.
I have made great connections with other Realtors.
I have picked up local Listing appointments, and Buyers from all over the Country.
Nothing has closed escrow yet, however I am optimistic.
The SEO, and self promotion are clearly worth my time.
I hope this answers your question,
P.S. I do feel warm & fuzzy when I open escrow though, does that help?
P.S.S. I take good care of my Italiano friends, always open for a referral.
I do have:
1- buyer for 1.7 mil for single family
2- European investors
1- buyer for Gas Station
3 - first time buyer
3 - referrals out
12 listings on my own including Villas in Italy for 25 millions, and someone is talking of service.......I speak 4 languages, and brought my first house at 18.... I love what I do.
My question is not a criticism, even tough, I do not believe people just doing Trulia for the fun of answering; we all search and try to "Expose" for the good of our clients and business.
I've turned down so many buyers because lenders said..........you're prequal, and told them they couldn't afford it, turned out I was a bad guy!
........So, let's have fun,
and just out of curiosity, did anyone benefit from Trulia posting?
I love what I do, I can't imagine ever doing anything else!
It is more for answering questions from buyers and sellers the best we
can without spacific information from them.
If it turns into a lead, thats always good too.
