Recently, I did an exercise with a group of agents that stunned even me. I had an idea of what it would do, but the final results were amazing. I asked a group of agents to sit down with a blank piece of paper and write out every possible lead they have in their business right now.

And many agents are clamoring for the demise of the open house, claiming it's a "dinosaur" from "the old days." These agents feel that the proliferation of online data now available to buyers makes open houses a waste of their time and energies.
