I also find myself getting calls about the City of Pullman in general. And I enjoy being that first connection to our great community. I liken myself to the Internet version of the old fashioned welcoming wagon. I enjoy helping folks find places to eat, places to play, and even buy a new pair of shoes in a hurry when necessary.
I know if I had to relocate from Pullman to a new town, it would be simply overwhelming. Especially if I only a had a few days to decide during a job interview if we were going to move to Pullman. And, like many of those who call me, I would be on the Internet researching in an attempt to acquire as much of a feel as I possibly could.
And make no mistake, the Internet is certainly a great tool, in fact an invaluable tool. And as consumers we are we are all using it more than ever before. It is true that most folks buying a home begin on the Internet. And so it stands to reason that sellers want a great presence on the Internet for their homes. And that, of course, happens to be where I put my marketing power to work.
But lest we forget, the bottom line is always people. People who need homes. People who need to sell their homes. And for me, that is my favorite part. The people. The people who weave their lives into their homes, and entrust me to be a part of that process, whether it is buying a new home or selling their homes. And as I gazed on facebook last night at many of my clients pictures of their little ones on Halloween, I often saw them standing on the front porch of their homes, or by the fire place of their homes, or by the front door of their homes. Homes that they entrusted me to help them purchase or sell. And that, my friend, was a very warm feeling indeed.
