Wow, things have been hectic! Have barely had time to sleep, much less to post. I am the queen of burning the candle at both ends, have been for years!
We are blessed to have about 90% referral business, so business is good, and seems to be getting better. We find that when you take good care of your clients, they remember you when their friends and family need help too.
We had a great event on Saturday night at O'Lordan's Irish Pub in Westminster, MD. My sister Kim plays in Third Wish, and since they were playing in Westminster I thought it would be a good idea to see if our primary appraisers, Denise and Roger Kindrick of ALL-STAR APPRAISERS would be available to meet us that night. (If you are looking for an honest appraiser who does great work, call them at 410-871-2268)
My brother has been working with them for many years, and I talk to them several times a week, but I have never met them in person. Denise said that they would love to join us, and she would call her parents (who's loan we did) and her friends Tommy and Michelle (who's loan we did) to see if they would be available. Unfortunately Mom and Dad weren't available, but it gave me an idea. I called the folks in the general vacinity and invited them to join us for an impromptu customer appreciation night of great music and friendly conversation. I didn't start calling folks until Thursday night for Saturday night. We had about 15 of 25 customers in that area join us. It was great! Everyone enjoyed the band, made new friends and we even had some folks that asked what we were all doing together...they are now potential clients.
What a fun way to thank your customers, and make new friends!
