Yes, orphaned clients, are home buyers of our listings who were represented by other agents and those agents did not stay in touch with them. We put those buyers on our mailing list in the hope that they will contact us when they have a real estate need and not the agent who name they have forgotten.

I haven't really heard of it before but I am sure it has been around for a long time.  People that don't choose the right agent to work with often get abandoned without even knowing it.

new heard it before.  But after a transaction is complete they are no longer anyone's clients.  Generally speaking they become my friend and I keep in touch.  There are exceptions, but sometimes it's okay with me if they pick another agent next time.

Heard it in a class a few years ago.  I don't remember the name of the product they were honking.... but it sent emails for you and I think Happy was in the name.  I had to go look it up.... Happy Grasshopper.  Yup years ago at RETSO.
