Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : I Had A VISION...But, just opened my eyes!

I Had A VISION...But, just opened my eyes!

Life has been crazy lately! Crazier than usual. I've been meeting myself coming and going!

But boy, did I open my eyes to AN AMAZING EVENT!new_found_glory.jpg quote image by bailey2_2

A man called my cell phone a couple of days ago. (my cell rings off my wall!) He begins to thank me for keeping up with his needs for property so diligently.  He told me his name. I said, "HUH?", quietly to myself of course.

And, of course I said, "you're welcome". I had NO CLUE who this guy was!

He wanted to come and view a couple of properties I had sent him??????? (not me said myself) One was a 22 acre tract with a home and the other was a 10 acre tract with a home.

Due to the fact that I had no idea who this man was I asked him for his email address and number since I was away from the office! It sounded good then. And, it worked.

I then scheduled the appointment with him and was totally dumbfounded where this lead had come from!

Once upon a time, Bob Stewart recommended the Market Leader Program to me. This is now VISION. Because of the intense schedule I have been keeping I just didn't get into it like I should have!

I dropped the ball with this program! For that I'm sorry and this is going to change quickly!



BouncDropball.gif bouncing and dropping ball image by XxDave_52xXI did absolutely NOTHING EXCEPT TO DO EVERYTHING WRONG...




I can honestly and emphatically recommend this program to all. VISION works in the background to bring so many incredible leads that my head is spinning. Contact them today and give them a try. All you have to do is sit back in your chair and learn to juggle the checks! Wow, I love it.

Yes, keep those eyes open.  Sounds like you found your calling there.

Posted by Monika Depalo, REAL ESTATE Agent/Stager (GAFF'S REFERRAL'S INC.) almost 10 years ago

Deb - Ok you convinced me. Now I'm gonna have to go look into it... Good luck and keep juggling those checks... as long as you don't have to dribble them.... lol 

Posted by Robert Hammerstein, Bergen County NJ Real Estate (Keller Williams Valley Realty) almost 10 years ago

Deb - Isn't it great to receive "Pennies from Heaven" . It really makes up for those client that spin your wheels for months !!!

Good luck and keep your eyes wide open

Bob Stewart is awesome and he always has our backs...he would never suggest something that he didn't think would not benefit a member...he is the ultimate best of the best...JMHO.

I do not have vision (although I am considering it) but get quite a bit of leads from my website.  I have had this happen several times and tomorrow I will be meeting with an out of town buyer who has been on my drip campaign for weeks.

WoW Deb, you played that one with finesse! Glad you made the sale!! I can't get Growth Leader in my area!

Posted by Caren Wallace, Portland Caren Real Estate (Premier Property Group LLC) almost 10 years ago

Deb, this is great, my web site does the work for me too. When they call, I quickly log on and sure enough they have just been AUtomatically been sent the listing they call on. Fun Fun.

Posted by Missy Caulk, Savvy Realtor - Ann Arbor Real Estate (Missy Caulk TEAM) almost 10 years ago

Having systems in place is definitely the answer to a successful business....especially when you're CRAZY busy! Glad it's working out for you. Say "hi" to yourself for me :-)

Hey Deb,

sounds great! However, after reading others posts about Vision, it is obvious that not everyone is achieving the same results.

Good luck!

Posted by Tony Orefice, Realtor/Harrisburg NC,Concord NC (Wilkinson ERA/ almost 10 years ago

Deb, this is the great thing about Growth Leader. I've had 6 closings from the product, all 6 called me. I pursued none of them. This obviously isn't the ideal way to manage your prospects. I've since brought on a sales partner whose working them with more dillegence than I ever put into it. Great to hear you had a good deal come your way. Congrats on the feature too!

Posted by Greg Nino, Houston, Texas (RE/MAX Compass, formerly RE/MAX WHP) almost 10 years ago

Congratulations on getting a sale.  It is always a good thing to have a lead come through

Okay. This is a "pearl" as Howard Brinton would say. I spoke with them on Friday and planned to sign up thinking it was $99 per month. When I found out it was an additional $150 for google adwords I backed off. Thanks for the tip.

Posted by Vickie Nagy, Vickie Jean the Palm Springs Condo Queen (Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate) almost 10 years ago

Oh my goodness! What a surprising response! Thank you for not thinking I'm dropping the ball too much!

Monika, I won't let this one go that's for sure!

Robert, I think I would be okay even dribbling the checks! lol.

Laura, I would love to take some credit but I can' was VISION.

Karen, we are surrounded by good friends. I am so glad I found AR...aren't you?


Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) almost 10 years ago

Christine, that's what I thought. I do get lots of leads from my own website but I'm the one that sets up the drip campaigns, I'm the one that responds to my leads on a regular basis....little did I know they were doing this for me. Man, I felt so "responsible". How awesome!

Caren, thank you. All I could think of was that there is another Realtor in the area named Debra...I wasn't going to tip the boat so I played the game with him. I turned out a winner and it really was my lead!

Missy, would you call me and whisper all your secrets in my ear? OMG, I am so tired of learning things the hard way! LOL. I'm glad you are experiencing this my friend.


Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) almost 10 years ago

I haven't had quite the success story with Vision - but still it is working well for me too. Love the internet contacts!

Posted by Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Keller Williams Capital Properties) almost 10 years ago

Deb, I'm glad it worked!  I've been doing something similar myself for a long time and yes systems make all the difference.  

Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) almost 10 years ago

Deb = Congratulations! and now you know the system can really work for you.

Seems that even when we don't cover all of the bases...someone else does.

Awesome story!

Good stuff....even the bible says that without a vision, the people perish....

Deb--GREAT post and I think that I'm right there with you--I owe them a post and just have been so slammed I haven't done it.  This is a wonderful program and many have been very successful.  They work WELL with us and just keep giving!  Congrats on the buyer and best of luck with the program.

I love the drip lead system.  It just makes things easier and allows us to keep in contact with people.

Posted by Christine Donovan, Broker/Attorney 714-319-9751 DRE01267479 - Costa M (Donovan Blatt Realty) almost 10 years ago

It is a great program. I'm in the transition phase at this time.  I send people to my site all the time. Today I had someone call on a home they seen on my P2A site and of course it had already sold. I was out and about so I mentioned how she could get the daily listing alerts on my other site.. 10 minutes later, I get a text message... She had just signed up.


Posted by Roland Woodworth, Q Realty - Power In Real Estate (Q Realty) almost 10 years ago

Deb, glad VISION is working for you.  I will be looking into it this week.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty) almost 10 years ago

Deb - Wow, how easy is that? I have to check this out. Thanks!

Posted by Carol Culkin, Overland Park (Reece & Nichols) almost 10 years ago


Wow, that is too cool. I wonder would happen if you got busy and worked with it a while? lol

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) almost 10 years ago

Oh wow. If it can happen for you, then it can definitely happen for me too - and I stopped with the Market Leader thing last month - it became way too costly for me. I wonder if my prospects are still receiving the drip e-mail/newsletters. I know they are still getting the listings, because I have them sent both from Market Leader and my MLS.

Posted by William James Walton Sr., Greater Waterbury Real Estate (WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Briotti Group) almost 10 years ago

Deb - Excellent job ! I told you if you worked the vision system, or in your case, would bring buyers ! LOL !

Posted by Melissa Grant, The Law of Attraction In Life & Business (A Serendipity World) almost 10 years ago

I have had a lot of traffic to my Vision site, mainly from my links, but registration is not happening.  The lack of flexibility in the web content is also a problem.  It makes it hard to drive organic traffic to my own site.

Posted by Gene Riemenschneider, Turning Houses into Homes (Home Point Real Estate) almost 10 years ago

Congrats Deb. Sounds like the system is working well for you. I've heard mixed posts, but I think a lot has to do with the way you work the system and your area.

Posted by John Cannata, Texas Home Mortgage - Purchase or Refinance (214-728-0449 almost 10 years ago

I haven't looked into it at all, but if it's that much per month, that's not in the budget right now!

Posted by Kerry Jenkins (Prime Properties) almost 10 years ago

That's a great success story - congrats to you and your new buyer.  Keep up the good work.

Posted by Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089, Maui Real Estate sales and lifestyle info (Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers) almost 10 years ago

Hi Deb, that is great news - congrats! Now you should go back to the rest of your Growth Leader prospects and see if you can uncover anymore gems. Who knows, another closing may be just a phone call or email away. :)

Posted by Jennifer Lew (DocuSign, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

I think I will check it out, I'm pretty sure I could learn how to juggle checks if given the opportunity!

Posted by Janna Scharf, Coeur d'Alene Idaho Real Estate Expert (Keller Williams Realty Coeur d'Alene) almost 10 years ago

Sounds like something we should check out ... never heard of VISION and I thought I am all over the internet. Learned something new. Thank you!

Posted by Susanne Novak, ABR, FIS, GRI (RE/MAX 24/7) almost 10 years ago

Hi Deb -- that's a great story!  I'll have to check it out and see what Vision is all about.  It spunds very intriguing!  thanks for the tip -- and for the wonderful blog title!

Posted by Alexsandra Stewart, Broker - Portland Oregon Real Estate (Remax equity group) almost 10 years ago

Now everyone knows your secret.  I wonder if any of your other Vision leads will read this?

Posted by Joetta Fort, Independent Broker, Homes Denver to Boulder (The DiGiorgio Group) almost 10 years ago

Hi Deb. I use the Vision program. At least half of those people will end up buying from SOMEONE in the next 1-3 years. If you keep on top of should be you at least 10% of the time.

Posted by Mark Velasco, Listing Agent-Whittier & Surrounding ciities (Sharpstone Realty, Inc) almost 10 years ago


Are you still using the Vision program?  I have switched between Vision and Just Listed/Market Leader and have mixed results....probably because I am not as proactive as I could be, but I can't say that I am thrilled with either system. 

What are your thoughts a year later?
