Your Most Neglected Client

Your Most Neglected Client

I'm willing to bet it's not who you think it is. It's certainly not your "now" clients. Real estate agents are great at handling their now clients. These are the people who keep you busy all day long.

Art of the Close

The Power of One

The Power of One

Part of my company's mission statement includes being the source for real estate success. So it's no surprise that I hear from agents every day who want to improve their business. As I listen to them, I notice a common theme. They are overwhelmed with ideas for change. Many of them have lists of dozens of things they want to tackle, but they don't know where to start.

Stop Whining, and Get Back to Work!

July is here. That's great news, isn't it? Sure it is! Because now you have a new whine for why your business isn't where it needs to be: "It must be because it's July and people are on vacation."

Finding the Right Geographical Farm
Feb 24, 2012

Finding the Right Geographical Farm

Geographical farming has long been a staple of real estate agents. There's no question that geographical farming can be a successful method of lead generation. However, many agents try geo farming without success, and declare, "Geographic farming doesn't work."

Open Houses - The Case for Traditional Open Houses in a Wired World

Open Houses - The Case for Traditional Open Houses in a Wired World

No one knows exactly when open houses became part of the real estate scene. They've been a mainstay of the real estate industry for so long that it's proven impossible to meet a practitioner that can exclaim, "I remember back in the old days when we didn't have open houses!"

Like society in general, the real estate industry has experienced growth - and change - in leaps and bounds. Almost every facet of the real estate industry has changed dramatically in the past century. 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.

Are real estate agents ready to turn their backs on what was originally the lifeblood of their community? Our open houses white paper proposes that agents should not be so quick to dismiss the power of an open house and provides concrete reasons for using this important sales tool.
