Planning on being a Real Estate agent? A lot of agents only look at the bottom line for them and that is important. The most important factor though is getting clients and keeping them happy. Having served 100’s of clients you need to understand what you business is and what type of client you want.
For example if you want to deal in Luxury homes then you need to establish the areas and prices of the homes you consider to be luxury. You also need to understand the marketing that is expected when you buy or sale properties.
Me and Lori almost always do Open houses on Sundays. This does two things it helps people who don’t have realtors or they are with them to see your property. The other more important thing is you can listen to the visitors comments and see what they think of the property their likes and dislikes.
Whether you are an investor, buyer or Realtor you also need to market your service and you properties. I have several websites I do that with Click here to see one. This really lets everyone know what you have 24/7. I even have a you tube channel that sold a $250,000+ home.
The problem is getting all the right information and training to get your whole business model put together. My websites get 100,000’s of hits a month and that keeps me pretty busy. My practice will stay smaller now and I will personally be dealing with each property. Getting bigger is not always better when you building a practice. Make sure that you have people around you that share the same ideas you have and have the same work ethics.
When you do have the right marketing then you can really pick and choose who to serve and make more money doing it. More importantly your clients will also get better service from you and will be very satisfied clients.
Make sure that you send them a weekly update and communicate on a regular basis. I always send videos and picture updates to my out of state clients. Remember You Tube is FREE!
