Education & Training - Sell with Soul
My thoughts and ramblings on the real estate industry and how we've gotten into the pickle of being among the nation's most UNtrusted professions!



Have you ever noticed (or is it just me) that the people you actually "market" to aren't the ones who actually respond? In my worlds (‘ritin' and real estate), I find that the bulk of my business comes from those who have not received any direct sales pitch from me. Either I'm a lousy sales-pitch...
How old are you now - 25? 32? 47? 65? It doesn't really matter; I'll assume that if you're reading Active Rain blogs, you're old enough. Old enough for what? Well, to know WHO you are, WHAT you like to do, WHERE you like to do it, and HOW often, right? In other words, you ARE who you ARE and you'...
A few days ago, one of my articles was featured at Realty Times. It was one I wrote for Ricardo Bueno's Blog Project - "Building a Community Around Your Blog."

... to reach, that is. In my book, I talk about how important it is for a real estate agent to be reasonably easy to reach, especially in the early years when he or she is building a client database. I've always been very accessible to clients and prospects, perhaps too much so at times, much to ...
I recently wrote a blog called "Hang in There, Rookies! It Gets Easier, I promise! which was about how once you get a few SPC's (satisfied past clients) under your belt, this job really does get easier - the bringing-in-business part of it anyway.

I have a friend who recently got her real estate license and dutifully went out looking for her Very First Broker. She found The One and excitedly signed on.
