Search Activation Policy

Updated: Aug 25

In this article, I wanted to share my search activation policy, including how I typically won't activate searches without a face to face conversation and one of the top reasons why (catfish buyers).

I encourage almost all buyers to establish search(es) with me over Zoom or in person because those are best.

I don't establish searches with buyers who initiate contact via email, contact page on my website, or text prior to a discussion, in part due to the high volume of catfish buyers that target me, with some weeks having more catfish buyers than legitimate buyers contacting me.
