I am very fortunate to have GREAT owners and residents who refer owner and tenant prospects to me....I HEART referrals!
UNFORTUNATELY, I rarely take the properties that are referred to me and I ALWAYS thank those who give me these referrals.....
I received an e-mail this morning from a new investment owner of a short sale that he and his wife will be repainting over the next few months. A current OWNER and a current TENANT both mentioned my name to him and he acknowledged in his e-mail that he may well be over his head in his purchase and remodeling efforts.
They bought a split-level, short sale, built in 1960 and when I viewed it on Zillow....it needs A LOT OF WORK.....and it needs a property manager who has access to a EPA lead certified repair team.
My benefit to these "flippers" may well be in the 2 property management firm names that I gave him in my return e-mail....both have in-house maintenance with EPA certification and they both have properties in the area that they manage.
.....My REFERRAL may be their best step so far!
