Smooth Closing Because Of ActiveRain

 

Today we had a smooth closing for very special first time home buyers.

It was because of ActiveRain that I met Winnie and Joseph.

A couple of month's ago, John Meussner  asked me take on these qualified buyers. I was sure he knew them personally and only after our home inspection, did I find out it was through blogging that they connected.

John writes some wonderful information about mortgages and

Joseph, following his blog, decided to call him.

Joseph asked if he knew of an agent in Baltimore, where he and Winnie had just been offered jobs. That's where I came in.

I'm in Maryland, John is in California and Winnie and Joseph were in Rochester, New York.

And we all came together because of ActiveRain.

Not only did they buy the perfect home...who says there is no such thing?

I have found new friends and a future listing.

Wishing Winnie and Joseph a lifetime of happiness together.
