So, I attended a function today where a local Attorney Firm, Leeuwner-Maritz, re launched a fresh new look for their Firm and we also had a nice breakfast ….. Thanks for that!
+/- 250 local agents, many of whom I work with, were also treated to an inspiring and motivational talk by none other than Cherie Power Coach and Speaker Cherie Eilertsen. I am so glad that the RealPro team got the opportunity to experience this. Cherie is such an energetic and dynamic person, you can’t help to feel like taking on the world after hearing her speak. Maybe the Sharks should invest in a talk or two …… Ha ha
What came out loud and clear from her talk was that our industry is an ever changing one. Principals, agents, attorneys and anyone involved in the Real Estate industry have to be looking for new and better ways to attract, service and keep clients. Our job as agents is a difficult one. We have to list new stock, find buyers and then put all the pieces of the puzzle together before we have a deal. Then, once we have the deal we have to start solving problems and finding ways for this deal to actually work …… Easier said than done.
Being a real property expert in the area where you work will go along way to making your job a lot easier and you will be able to work more effectively . Staying in touch and keeping a list of your hot prospective buyers is so important. If you are seen as the expert in your area, listings will come and if you have your list of buyers ready …. guess what, the offers will come as well. It won’t happen as easy as that every time and you will have to revert to advertising, showing etc etc but doing the hard work on a database of hot buyers will definitely be of great help …… Note to self!! This is an area of my business where I need to be a lot sharper and success will follow.
Thank you Leeuwner-Maritz and Cherie …. What a great morning and what a great privilege to have been able to attend, time well spent.
