Joshua Smith's Mega Open House Strategy

 

Would you like a way to quickly ramp up your real estate business (even if you have zero listings and no budget)? 

You can be modeling one of the top team leaders in the country - Joshua Smith - who learned how to use a Mega Open House Strategy during his first year in the business (he sold 43 homes his first year!) to power an incredible rise in the industry. Joshua has since gone on to sell 6000 homes and has become listed as one of the top 30 REALTORS in the country.

The Lead-Gen Technique that Doesn't Feel Like Work (and Delivers Massive ROI)

 

What if lead generation didn't have to feel like work? What if you could tap into the easiest, most productive lead generation system to produce an endless stream of referrals? Oh, and by the way - no technology skills or social media mastery required!  

The answer is networking. Before you dismiss this concept let's dig into the details and the specific technique. 

Networking simply means you are connecting with people who have the power to send you referrals. It may be surprising to hear that according to Columbia University every American has 290 connections.  These aren't Facebook friends or Instagram followers but actual connections. This is your clients sphere of influence.

Now of that group how many people will be moving this year? According to the US Census Bureau 11% of the US population moves ever year. This means that every single person in your sphere is in direct contact with 33 people who will move this year.   

Now let's assume you...

Overcoming Seller Reluctance + 2020 Market Predictions

 

Are you finding that sellers are reluctant to put their home on the market? 

You aren't alone! One big reason for buyers and seller to hesitate entering the market is low inventory. When sellers fear they can't find replacement housing it creates a self reinforcing loop of even lower inventory for buyers with fewer and fewer homes coming to market. As real estate professionals we need to be able to answer the question of how we can protect sellers when they place their home on the market. 

In this quick video we provide some key insights into the market for 2020 as well as three key way to overcome sellers reluctance.  In addition we have three reports from our friends at KCM Blog that provide clear insight into the market for 2020 including mortgage rates, home sales pace, and appreciation rates.

Tapping into the Aspirational Goals of Your Clients

 
Your best clients helped you a ton last year - they bought and sold homes, they told their family and friends about you, they gave you encouragement, provided referrals, and were your biggest advocates. 
 
So what did you do to help them with their goals and dreams?
 
If the answer is not nearly enough then this is your year to embrace Aspirational Marketing.  Your best clients, your A+ group, and all of your friends have aspirational goals both personally and professionally. Your mission, your passion, should be to discover what these goals are and help each of them in any way that you can.
 
Why?
 
Because when you help enough other people achieve their dreams they will help you achieve yours! It's the power of reciprocity. When you focus on helping others you in turn will be helped. 
 
Where do you start? By asking the question, try using this script:
 
Listen I just wanted to call and say thank you for (referrals/doing business) last...
