Countdown to Thanksgiving - newsletters still generate calls

Today I woke feeling thankful for my early morning hike buddy and the morning hike we had in store; for my car that would safely get me to our trail head; for another great friend and client who often meets for breakfast after my hikes.

While I breakfasted, the phone rang. 10 minutes later my meeting broke up so I listened to the voice mail and then called back promptly,

"...my name is Judy, my cell phone is xxx-xxx-xxxx..... I'm calling in regard to my mom's house...we're not ready to sell now but will be in the future....would like an opinion on what we should do to get the house ready, and of course a price estimate....."

It turns out she and I both had time to meet and for me to tour the house this morning. She's wowed by my quick response; I'm wowed to know once again that printed newsletters, sent regularly, still make the phone ring.

old-fashioned paper newsletters

During the course of our conversation I learned that she called me due to these newsletters, which aren't sophisticated at all, but easy to read, a mix of general interest things and real estate, including market stats and activity level in the area. I'll be keeping in touch with her, giving her the information she requested....and more.

Today I'm especially thankful that old-fashioned paper newsletters are still a viable way of reaching sellers.
