Does your Real Estate professional truly care about you?

Many Real Estate professionals market themselves as going the extra mile. And like all reasonably abstract terms, this can be defined as anything. Some historical examples of “going the extra mile” have included:

  • Performing customized exorcisms.
  • Pretending to love their clients’ pets.
  • Open House weekends during apocalyptic blizzards.

And by the way, this is all great. It may even hit the extra two-mile threshold. Continue reading “Does your Real Estate professional truly care about you?”

This is the ‘sweet spot’ for real estate referrals

referral real estate sweet spot

We know real estate is a relationship business, not a transactional business, so you’ve got to be there, helping your clients, growing your relationships with them.

Now think about this.   As a real estate agent, you’re coming into your clients’ house, you’re talking to them about their biggest asset, you’re mediating fights. You become a big part of their lives.

Then, all of a sudden, ink goes to paper and poof, you disappear until closing. You’ve left your clients cold-turkey and they’re pretty irritated because that’s when they really need your help.  Whether it’s helping them arrange a moving truck, or a mortgage, or figuring out how to connect their electricity.

Whatever it may be, they need you and that’s what you’re there for. You’re not just there to market their property and negotiate the offer.   You cannot up and disappear and expect to show up with a gift basket or a bottle of wine at closing, looking to save face, and expect they’re just going to tell everyone about you.

Going viral: How word-of-mouth referrals spread

In our industry, nothing beats word-of-mouth referrals.  A referral can sell you better than you can sell yourself.

The most common misconception is that word-of-mouth referrals happen naturally after we do a great job.   There are hundreds of businesses out there that will meet your clients’ needs just as well as you can. It’s the minimum standard to be in business at all.

If you want your customers to come back to you time and time and time again and tell others, just meeting their needs is not good enough.  You have to delight them, or you could be leaving thousands of dollars on the table. Continue reading “Going viral: How word-of-mouth referrals spread”
