Virginia Beach Home Loans: John Murphy

John Murphy

Just as I was writing my last post about the fact that referral business is far superior to internet leads I got a call from John Murphy with a referral. He said that the person whom he sent to me left a message for me. I am not sure which phone she called. I don't recall receiving a call from her on my office phone and I am guilty of not checking my cell phone messages as much as I should.

John gave me her phone number and I just gave her a call. She was inquiring for her son and daughter in law. Her son is at work bet very much wants to get qualified. She is going to have him call me as soon as he gets off of work.

I really appreciate the business that John sends me. He tells people "if you want to hear something that sounds good go to your bank, if you want to get it done go to Chris Ohlsen". People tell me all the time about how John says very Nice things about me.

And I have not heard a single complaint about John. Every single person whom we've worked with together loves John because John is out to help as many people as he can. I mentioned in my last post that if you are going to be purchasing property anywhere in the Malone area, go to John. Well, I mean it! You will be happy that you took my advice.

Sounds like you guys have a great cooperative relationship.  And it's a great thing to have a mortgage broker you can depend on to actually do what they say they can do.  Wishing you guys much success.

Christopher - Thank you! Yes, it is nice both ways. I know that if I send someone to John that John will make me look good and I do my best to make him look good. Also, he's a very nice guy. He handled my mother's transaction for a beautiful little cabin in Mt. View, NY. He lives close to that area so I am hoping to get some fishing or something in with him this summer.

You must be pretty great to have a real estate agent referring you business!  Nothing like a good referral.

D.Bass - I'm just a hard worker and I work smart, but thank you. Yeah, a referral beats the heck out of an internet lead, thats for sure.

I love referrals. More often then not, they progress to fully executed transactions. Yippy!

Rosario - Most often referrals do turn into closed transactions. Lately I have been getting more referrals that I have to deny than I like to, but when the prospect is qualified 97% of the time it results in a closed transaction.
