Dear [Recipients Name],

It was great meeting you at the Annual Real Estate Convention a few months back in Summerfield. As you may remember, during that time I shared my thoughts on changing the scenery regarding my career. I have finally made the decision to quit my job at my office and am now a free agent looking to be part of a new team.

I have been in the real estate business for over nine years now and feel that I have the proper credentials to join any team that will take me. I have a great number of clients and have closed many deals and offers, despite the housing industry being what it is.

I would be eternally grateful if you could provide me with any information as to where I can direct my job search. I am willing to relocate and would gladly move to your city if the opportunities lie there. I have attached my curriculum vitae for your review. I can be reached at 333-3333. I look forward to hearing from young from you soon and getting the chance to speak with you again. Thank you.
