“Hmm, what was her name?” I thought as I opened up Google.
“I think it was Jane Olsen, but is it Olsen with an e, or Olson with an o…?”
I entered the first option into the search bar.
A Facebook link was first, so I clicked that.
“She’s in the right city, but this can’t possibly be the real estate professional my friend told me about. There’s nothing ‘real estate’ here … just cats, tattoos and concerts.”
I click back to the Google search results.
The next link goes to the results of a running race. The next link is for a city petition. There are eight results, but none seem to fit.
This isn’t working, so I try the other version of the name with ‘realtor’ beside it.
Ten minutes later, I haven’t found Jane, but I did find another real estate agent who had some interesting blog posts, so I reached out to him instead.
