This is why this page is so relevant at this time. This is on the front page of the local paper for today's enjoyment! http://www.tampabay.com/news/business/realestate/bar-suspends-clearwater-attorney-for-involvement-in-agents-dubious-real/1203232
You can put a code on the box and they can't go in even with their key without calling for the code. The Villages new home sales don't coop and more than likely they are being difficult because they don't want to cobroke on resales. Such a crazy way to do business when the best thing for the seller and all parties involved would be an electronic box.
Different things work for different people and for different reasons! I think if you commit to a strategy that is well thought out and follow through, a large number of things will work. Many agents are short sighted and try something for a few weeks and bail if it is not generating enough action. We should have a long range plan and work the plan until you have enough time to measure results. Marketing doesn't always give measurable results rapidly. I forget but I think the old rule was someone has to see something 5 times before it is committed to memory. Many agents do one or two mail outs and then stop or advertise once or twice to see if it gets results. I agree online is huge but there is still a large segment of the market that is not online. If you can develop enough business in one segment without the other....you are doing the right thing! As I stated earlier...track and spend accordingly.
Craig Henry Realtor I agree with Michael J. Maher. When I was a new agent, I had a difficult client referred by another Realtor in our office. We wrote 15 offers....all of them low balls. But....I learned how to write an offer practically with my eyes closed and we did eventually close. Looking back, I am grateful for that client because it would have taken a long time to get that much experience.
I agree with Brian Copeland...I found the most VALUE in the CRS classes (training changed by business for the better). Of course, on the money side, I too make the most from the referrals and currently serve as the Membership Chair for CRS Missouri.
RE BarCamp Is always great and invigorating. Some of the best classes I have taken still fall within CRS....Ed Hatch teaches s great class about building your referral business. I took the course several years ago and it still has a positive affect on how I build and retain my referral clients
