Use this letter as an informal survey of neighborhoods in the area from clients’ perspectives. Since you’re always talking to prospective buyers and sellers, it’s useful to have anecdotal “on the ground” reports from people in the area.
From the letter:
I was wondering if I might ask you a few informal questions about your neighborhood and how you feel about living there. Your thoughts, if you’d be willing to share them with me, would be very helpful.
Often people relocating to the area or looking for a new neighborhood like to hear from people who actually live in the area. Your opinion would help me help them, and temper the “raw facts and figures” approach that most real estate agents offer.
