Are You Talking About Me?


When I met with one of my special customers today, he told me he had been reading my ActiveRain blogs.

He then added .."and I'm pretty sure you were talking about me."


Are you talking about me

Guest what? He was right!


This was not a problem, in fact he was rather pleased. Many of my daily writings are recaps of what is happening in my Real Estate Career.

In sharing what we all do, I hope that it will educate the public and make our industry better. 

If you are working with me in real estate, I will probably be talking about you, well not really about you personally, but about things that happen in this wonderful world of my real estate.

Hi Margaret

No doubt is was flattering, and hopefully something that others benefitted from. It does raise the issue of being careful of what we discuss and how with regard to our clients since we never know who might be reading us!

How nice that a client recognizes what you have said - and hopefully it was all positive.

You have fans!  I often wonder if anyone reads my blog outside of people that just stumble upon a post from time to time

Margaret, I've always felt that if a client recognizes themself in a post, that's not a bad thing.  But if their friends recognize them, that's not a good thing!

Margaret,  I've had a few clients say things about me that they only would have known from reading my blog and bio.  When they mention it ... I say ... someone has been doing their homework.  We may not know "who" exactly is ready ... but we know they are.

I remember vividly the first time a client "spotted" themselves in my post.  It was about how I normally attend my closings, but missed the first one because my children totalled the car and ended up at the Emergency Room.  I posted a photo of her wrecked car.  Not only did the client say "hey I think that was me" ON the actual post, but he also emailed and told him he had no idea the accident had been that bad and how sorry he was.

 I have had this conversation also with one of my clients. I explained the same thing but I also said that what we have learned together helps many people Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland

Margaret---This is fabulous! I never believe that my posts get read by my clients and customers but just recently I was talking to one of my clients and he quoted me to a friend of his--it was directly from a blog post of mine! By the way---I am now working with his friend and will end up selling him a home too!

Margaret - You make an excellent point in your #2 comment.  It is important to consider what we write and post.  We don't know who will be watching!
