Did We Get The Contract Because...


Last Sunday, Father's Day, we had a one hour open house  on

718 Pacific Street

Stone Hill

Baltimore, Md. 21211

I figured no one would show up. Boy, was I wrong.

We had 11 groups that actually signed in.


And on Tuesday, The Baltimore Fishbowl published

  this wonderful article  


Baltimore Fishbowl Margaret Rome


And a few days later we had a ratified contract.


Did we get the contract because of the article?

Did we get the contract because I sent the article to the agents who showed the property?

Did we get the contract because of the open house?

Did we get the contract because of the MLS?

Did we get the contract because of the many on line sites?

Did we get the contract because of blogging?

Did we get the contract because of  print media?

Did we get the contract  because of  Sunday's radio show? 

Did we get the contract  because I was there for each showing?

Did we get the contract because I  followed up with each agent and visitor?

Did we get the contract because of the sale sign?



Does it matter?
