Scenario: You contact a vendor for something concerning real estate that has a sense of urgency that has the need for istallation oh, maybe a week and a half out. Maybe it is something like plumbing, or electrical. You meet for details, ask for pricing and installation costs, all seems fine, and the vendor drops off the face of the earth. No response to several followup attempts. Nothing. You know this one provision of pricing etc could result in more business for this vendor and that you would have recommended them in a heartbeat, and that their service would raise the bar for others in real estate. How many additional times would you follow up? At what point do you just sigh and say "next!"?
What if you used this program on your tablet, along with a floor plan (if there isn't one, draft a quick one with Floor Plan Creator, a free app), to chart out best areas for wifi in a home your buyers are looking to purchase? Anyone use this consistently for owner-occupied homes that have wifi? http://www.howtogeek.com/165614/how-to-create-a-wi-fi-heatmap-for-network-analysis-better-coverage-and-geek-cred-galore/
Well, well, well: http://www.ubergizmo.com/2013/07/samsung-smartphone-sales-reportedly-left-iphones-far-behind/ Interesting. Happy to not have started with a new phone just yet. The Note 3 sure sounds pretty from what I read on the same site!
There's an agent who repeatedly posts other agent's listings under a group in Facebook, pulling the listings from the agent's IDX on the agent's website. I know in some areas this is kosher, since supposedly the additional exposure may draw buyers. However, shouldn't the agent get permission to post another agent's listings on Facebook prior to ostensibly posting as if it were their own or belonging to a member of the group (the agent whose listing was posted is not a group member)? Just because it appears on an IDX, does that give other agents carte blanch to do what they will with the listing?
Suz: Yep. And so, best case, you waste your time PROVING that. So, you're back to "even" in terms of trust, but you had to stop your life and DO SOMETHING you should never have had to do in the first place. What a waste...
One of the best pieces advice I've ever received, I received on this page. I knew this in my heart, but never actually articulated it. My job is to build solid relationships over time. To put the bead on closing deals or the payday is problematic in my opinion. Of course I like to get paid. But payday is anti-climactic for me because it often means that the wonderful relationship I've developed with my clients over sometimes months enters a new phase. Money is secondary- but is amazingly abundant with a foundation of solid relationships.
