Feedback The Rome Way


This week my special beach house in Chesapeake City was shown by Joe Kowalczk C21 New Millennium. 

My wonderful sellers changed their plans after Joe called to make an appointment.

And the same evening, after his busy day with clients, Joe called to share how much he enjoyed 5131 Breezy Point Rd.... the way it was maintained and how it was a turn-key move-in right-now property.

He noticed  and commented on so many of the features. Neither one of us had seen a blue granite carved farm sink.  Joe continued to talk about the enclosed all season porches, the storage in the master bedroom, the fenced yard, outside shower, hot tub, fire-pit etc. I really appreciated Joe's feedback and his enthusiasm for this original Sears cottage on the beach.

I invited Joe to call in today's radio program to talk about his experience with showing my listing. He took me up on the offer and we had a nice chat on the program. I was able to give out Joe's name and the name of his company

...and this evening I received this text from Joe.




"Margaret, thank you for the opportunity to discuss one of your listings in your broadcast today. Wish we could have talked longer and I would have mentioned the full, wrap-around, front porch with infrared heating--enabling owners to enjoy the porch throughout the year. Also mention there is space under the house to store their  kayaks when they are not in use.... Have a great week Margaret, I hope we elicited some traffic on this unique home. Very Respectfully, Joe"

I love receiving feedback and I love working with professional agents. Thank you Joe for showing, for your enthusiasm, for your feedback,  for your call to the radio show and for your follow-up text.

It would be a real pleasure to work with you!


That's feedback the Rome Way!
