Only a couple weeks into a shelter in place order and many of your clients will be going a bit stir crazy. How can you help? First reach out and connect. In a new study from AT&T over three weeks in March just as the coronavirus began to deeply impact the United States:

Sphere Script:

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.

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.

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...

What do you charge? Easy Scripts for Commission Conversations

 

What do you charge? 

You will hear this question hundreds of times during your real estate career. How you respond can determine if you actually take the listing, your earnings per hour, and how much you value your time as a real estate professional. 

When you fumble or fold by offering a discounted commission you not only do a disservice to yourself, you do a disservice to the industry, and your colleagues. Why? Because it signals to potential clients that fees aren't based on actual costs of doing business but on an arbitrary number that is negotiable. 

Professionals set their fees based on the value of the time, the cost and structure of their business operations, and their expenses associated with each client. As a real estate professional you should be doing the same. Check out these easy scripts for making those conversations easier:

It’s a success fee. I don’t charge anything unless I bring you an offer and we bring it all the...
