This Market Is Not “Business as Usual” – It’s “Brutal as Usual”

"It’s important to re-train, re-think, and respond in kind with the re-tooled knowledge and skills to practice real estate effectively in one of the most challenging times in our history."

My real estate broker/manager came to me recently to ask if I would speak to the sales group at our weekly staff meeting about some of the things I’ve been doing recently to account for the amount of sales production I’ve had in the first half of the year.

First, I would like to state upfront that I hate “boasting” or sounding like a hubristic boar (I’m a great man – in my own mind) and I am a firm believe that once you start getting a big head about how great you think you are, you stand to lose your focus and things can take a turn for the worse.

Using Surveys and Questionnaires to Improve Business

I strongly recommend using surveys and questionnaires whenever possible.

Asking for feedback from consumers who can critique your provided services, even asking agents in your own real estate office, can prove very valuable to improving the way you do business.

Reality Check: What To Do With Leads With No Phone Numbers

Firstly, I want to thank the many of you who have emailed me and thanked me for my blog entries.

Reality Check

I try to only write things that I feel will help you become either a better real estate agent or broker. The Internet can be a huge money pit if you don’t know how to use it properly.

Believe me; I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars perfecting what we do here at Tropical Realty in Melbourne, Florida.

Now to my main point.

I have received this question several times over the past few weeks: “What do I do with all the leads I get that have no phone numbers?”

I figure I should probably set the record straight. Each time I get the question I cringe at the thought of these real estate agents throwing their money down the drain.

My immediate reaction is always, “What do you think you should do with them?” Of course I usually say that to myself so I don’t hurt their feelings. Continue reading this post
