Active Rainer on ABC World News

ABC World News spoke with me not long ago, and it was aired tonight on Charlie Gibson’s 6:30 pm national broadcast. The subject was the housing market and the uptick in sales, and the producers contacted me to speak about the state of housing sales. I was interviewed by Betsy Stark in New Rochelle, NY nearby one of my listings.

I asked the producers when they first contacted me how they found me, and the answer was Google. Obviously, we are doing something right around here to get found on the ‘Net. I am certain that my blogging efforts are contributing the lion’s share of my web presence. For that, I am grateful. 

I can’t embed the video, at least right now I can’t, but here is the link:

Phil on ABC News

I wasn’t home for the broadcast, but Ann recorded it. I was in the car when the texts and calls began. I was happy to hear from two people in particular: my old broker, who trained me for my first 5 years, and a family friend who has been like a mother to me since childhood. 

It has been a hell of a day. We put one house under contract, another affer was accepted, and one of my agents had 2 buyers put offers on properties. I appeared on the national news. But the best part, by far, was seeing my 2-year old son’s reaction when I appeard on the TV when I was watching with him. The kid went bananas. I had more fun watching him time after time than seeing myself on TV.
