DOES TRULIA PRO WORK? IT SURE DID THIS WEEK...

                                                        

A few months back I wrote a post titled "I just became a Trulia Pro", a chronicle of my early experience on Trulia.

Although I enjoyed working with Trulia and loved the extra exposure coming to me and my listings, I discontinued the Pro Status for a couple months.  My budget was tight...

Well this Wednesday, my phone rings...

"Hi, my name is Katie, from Trulia," said the pleasant voice on the phone...

Although I was sitting at a Starbucks with my little girls, I was intrigued...

I had hated cutting back on my marketing.  I had planned to continue my advertising on Trulia, but my next closing wasn't scheduled until early February.

After talking to Katie for a bit, she made it clear my business was important to Trulia.  She would get me started for free for one month.  She would call me after a month and discuss continuing the service.

"So I can cancel at any time?  You guys won't charge me?"

"That's right," answered Katie.  She set everything up over the phone.

Well yesterday (Friday) my phone rings.  It was a young lady from Lisle.  She needed to sell her condo...

"How did you come across my name?" I asked...

"I found you on Trulia," she answered...

I had the listing appointment this morning.  It went great.

Does Trulia Pro work?  It sure did this week...
