IS THIS REALLY YOUR AGENT?
To Motivate To Make His Telemarketer Calls?
What Kind of a Professional Builds Himself a 6th Grade Science Fair-Like Contraption
I must admit, folks, even though I’m technically a “real estate agent,” I have a damn hard time understanding their reasoning or methods. To the right, you will see exactly what it is that I’m talking about.
Do Realtor keeps calling…IS THIS REALLY YOUR AGENT?
For the purpose of prospecting, that’s a homemade, motivational telemarketer booth. And within the industry, there is a bit of a craze circling Facebook right now, amongst agents, to see who can build the best “vision board,” meant to keep them motivated to make their calls.
First, let me point out what’s really wrong with this. And I’ll overlook the obvious, which is that society hates telemarketers. But besides that, if you need an actual script to call someone on the phone, to guide you in having a conversation, what does this say about the person’s authenticity?
What is the true purpose of an Open House?
The real answer is not what you think
The best-kept secrets in the real estate business
You can imagine if a seller knew about why an Open House was conducted at their home when trying to sell? Prompting outrage from agents like John, wondering why Realtor.com would ever publish this “secret” with the consumers that subscribe to the site for information—in other words, “This is our secret. It belongs to us. Where is your allegiance?” As I write this, in fact, What To Expect At An Open House, there are hundreds of comments from outraged Realtors® and other sources. I, however, am not one of them. To me, and probably to you, this “dirty little secret” has never been a secret. The sham of the open house is a topic I’ve written about for years. It even occupies a section in many books.
