never had any.... they never forgot me... those who listed with others did that because they formed new relationships with people who became real estate agents....there were too many to keep in touch with....didn't have time nor did I have the desire....had new business consistently with new subdivisions....did 40 of them through a 39 year career....

Just to ask them how everything went with the move. Ask them again if they  know of anyone that wants to buy or sell as they'll be talking about it alot over the next few months.

Then after about 3 months, they go on regular client list.
