The Running Realtor: Running Realtor Extends Real Estate Boundaries

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

Running Realtor Extends Real Estate Boundaries

In our expanding world economy Real Estate is still primarily a local business. Many people remain tied to the same geographic area where their friends or family reside and typically limit their search territory for a new home to a handful of towns. When people need to relocate they normally don't think of their local agent as a resource in the new destination.

As part of my ongoing effort to deliver service above and beyond the average agent I have been expanding my network of Realtors around the country. Unlike many agents that offer to toss your name into a Relocation companies hands for placement I have chosen Real Estate Agents that I know are reliable and meet my high expectation.

Before leaving New Haven County and venturing out on your own into a new territory contact me and hopefully I will know a great Realtor to help you. You'll save time searching for the perfect home and agents working together in both areas will be able to better coordinate your closings to minimize the stress of relocation.

Such a cool looking map Running Man!  Now you need to make one for the Mortgage Guys & Girls:-)
Posted by Jason Sardi, Your Agent for Life (Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina) over 10 years ago
Jason... I'll have to get to know more mortgage people around the country.  Only know a half dozen or so...
Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 10 years ago
Dan-What a fantastic idea! I don't think it occurs to people to ask if their agent knows reliable agents in other areas.  Thanks for pointing that out!  And thanks for including me!

Dan - I read your previous post and got exhausted just thinking about all the races you're going to be in and had to take a nap! LOL

I wake up and see that you've included in as your Ft. Worth REALTOR...thanks! That's a nice surprise and I love the way you made your map! Looks great!

What a great idea Dan! You should come to Austin and run in the Austin Bun Run! Oh THANKS for adding my pic to the map!
Posted by Danny Smith (DISCOVER TEXAS HOMES) over 10 years ago
Dan,  Excellent and cool map.  I'm actually getting my newsletter together and was planning on article similar to this for inclusion.

DAN-  I LOVE the graphic!!! How'd ya do that? Then, I looked and saw my little face. KEWL!!! I gotcha covered in NC, my friend! GBU!

Dan, terrific map -- looks great!  Thanks for including me.  I have a similar letter that I've sent out to many of my clients.

Dan, looks like you have most of the States covered with ActiveRain members.  I have read and commented on a lot of these members blogs and they are experienced Realtors that know what they are talking about.

Dan - That map is really really cool! What an awesome thing to do. Keep on running.
Posted by Lindsey Hasford, Bringing you home... (Edina Realty) over 10 years ago

Barb...Many times when I run into sellers they have already visited their destination and selected an agent on their own. figured this would let them know local agents in their current area can often help.

Linda... I do know someone that relocated to your area.... but that was about 25 years ago so don't hold your breathe waiting for the next one.

Grace...  Out of all the tag lines agents have yours always ranks quite high in my mind as memorable...

Danny... Wish I could but with a sluggish market I'll pass this year.  Do know a few Rainer's that are training for it.

Marc... A newsletter does the same job,  mine is still in the development stage though.

Elizabeth... This graphic was one of those challenging playtime activities...since a have an extensive background in AutoCAD drafting software I used that for the base map and imported the raster graphics to place in each state.

Brian.., I keep forgetting to look up the date of the DC gathering but that is next on my to-do list.

George... It's filling in.. I have a few empty states and certainly can't show everyone in highly populated areas.

Lindsey... Maybe we'll run into each other at a marathon one day.... most have 5k also...  :-)

Dan, NAR's Midyear conference is in D.C. from May 12-17th.  Feel free to come down anytime.  More information is available on the Realtor.org website.
Posted by Brian Block, Northern Virginia & D.C. Real Estate (RE/MAX Allegiance, Managing Broker/Branch Vice President) over 10 years ago
Dan, I think I may still have another 25 years in me! LOL (Just in case)
Posted by Linda Scanlan (A Fan of AR) over 10 years ago
I love that map! That had to have taken a lot of time - wow.  Great job! I hope you get to do some referrals from that too :)
Posted by Kim Wood, Kim Wood ~ The Tech Byte (The Tech Byte) over 10 years ago
That is a great idea and an awesome map, Dan.
Posted by Paul Slaybaugh, Scottsdale, AZ Real Estate (Realty Executives) over 10 years ago
the graphics are GREAT!!!! and you really do go the extra mile - you rock!
Posted by Thesa Chambers, Principal Broker - Licensed in Oregon (Fred Real Estate Group) over 10 years ago
This is way to cool ! But...since I am now Miss Tennessee...where is my crown ! lol
Posted by Melissa Grant, The Law of Attraction In Life & Business (A Serendipity World) over 10 years ago

Brain... I'll watch for the schedule of events and depending on our schedule we may make the trip.  Haven't been to DC in years...

Linda... Although I enjoy working I'm expecting to entertain myself differently 25 years from now...

Kim... Time will tell.... Suprisingly with such a mobile society relocation has not been a big part of my business.

Paul...Looks like I need a slight revision to the map... Initially it looked like I was punching you in the head.  :-)

Thesa... When my wife looked at the map she asked where your were...  I used that rare photo.....

Melissa... You have been crowned but the clarity is only visible at the state level... 

Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 10 years ago
OMG Dan! A marathon?!?!?! Uhm, let's focus on the 5k for now. :-) We'll see how that goes. Hopefully addicting!
Posted by Lindsey Hasford, Bringing you home... (Edina Realty) over 10 years ago
Lindsey... That comment was designed to get your heart pumping..... I haven't run a marathon distance yet but I'm thinking it is the big challenge...  Thought I'd see if I can improve my speed a little before attempting the 26.2 mile run but I'm going to a meeting tonight that might sway my decision.
Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 10 years ago
Dan, You are getting closer to us!!!!! Thank you for mentioning my picture.
Posted by Mana Tulberg, Real Estate Agent - Camarillo CA (805 County Real Estate) over 10 years ago
You wouldn't be the first nor last time, Dan ;)
Posted by Paul Slaybaugh, Scottsdale, AZ Real Estate (Realty Executives) over 10 years ago

This is an amazing map and thanks for including me.  I will never let you down! 

Posted by Judy Greenberg, Coldwell Banker - Buffalo Grove - Long Grove Homes (Coldwell Banker Long Grove) over 10 years ago
Wow, Dan that is really cool ! Thanks so much for including me, very much appreciated. I'm not even going to ask how you did that but it is way cool.
Posted by Missy Caulk, Savvy Realtor - Ann Arbor Real Estate (Missy Caulk TEAM) over 10 years ago

Dan - This is outstanding. Thanks so much for including me.

Posted by Jennifer Monroe, Real Estate REALTORĀ®/Broker in Beautiful Charlotte (Savvy + Company Real Estate) over 10 years ago
How did you DO that!  Thanks for thinking of me here on the other coast.
Posted by Elaine Hanson, REALTOR - Topanga, CA Real Estate Agent (Partners Trust Real Estate) over 10 years ago

Hi Dan,

This is a great piece,nice to know I made the list. ;) Consumers is your area are in good hands.

Posted by Suzanne Sands, Somerset MA Real Estate (Pavao Real Estate) over 10 years ago

Mana... Yes... Getting closer but still will be a few hours away when I run the Marathon in San Diego.  Hopefully I'll have some flexibility and make it up to the LA area.

Paul... Hope your done taking your lumps at your age...... LOL

Judy... Hope not.... You are working on that collection of holiday songs, Right?

Missy... The HOW is easy... I just work my magic!    :-)

Ann... Including agents in New England would be much easier if our states weren't so small....

Tom... Maybe I'll see a party animal like you at the concert after the Rock-n-Roll Marathon!

Dez... You already knew everything I do is a tad fancy!

Jennifer... Guess you're working to hard.... When are you heading east?

Elaine... Somehow you've embedded yourself in my mind as a Rock & Roller and with my focus on running my first marathon out your way you're tough to forget.

Suzanne... Consumers in any of the area I highlighted with agents will be in fine hands.  In saying that I see I neglected to put my face in Connecticut....

 

Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 10 years ago

Dan - just think how quickly we can get from state to state up here in New England!  I love that part of it!

Ann

Posted by Ann Cummings, Portsmouth NH Real Estate Preferrable Agent (RE/MAX Shoreline - NH and Maine) over 10 years ago
I love this post, Dan-- what a great idea, and awesome resource for your valued clients looking to relocate!  You are quite the networker  :)
Posted by Sandi Bauman, Chico CA Realtor (Chico Homes Real Estate) over 10 years ago
Now that is one cool map!!! Very, very impressive.  Since your energy seems to be endless, perhaps you should do a run across the country to meet all of these faces on the map.  :o)
Posted by Ginger Wilcox (Sindeo) over 10 years ago

Ann... Speed depends on your mode of transportation.  The other day one of my clients asked how long it would take me to run to the cabin in Maine.  I laughed by he calculated 10 days would be adequate.

Sandi... Haven't decided if all this social networking is good or bad.... certainly fun but in reality most of us don't run into all that many clients that need a referral for an agent out of our area.

Ginger... If I had plenty of time and money a variation on that idea would be fun.  Don't mind driving and could stop in each city or town for a run.

Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 10 years ago

Ditto to the cool map! I love graphics and haven't a clue. 8-)

Perhaps the 13 year old can come up with something. You are giving me ideas Dan!

Good luck on training for the marathon!
