conventions and networking events this month? Adding some new ones to
your list? As you ramp up your networking in the new year, these five
simple tricks can help you refresh your referral network. We’ll give you
a few peer-to-peer suggestions as well as ways to get referrals from
1. When networking, look to build relationships with power partners – people who may have connections you can benefit from, like high-quality videographers and low-cost printers. If you feel a connection with one or want to build a stronger relationship, ask to be referred to their preferred vendors. It’s an all-around win.
2. At conventions with your peers, take time to find agents who specialize in areas outside your wheelhouse. Consider ways you may be able to co-market and share costs and customer lists. Rather than seeing others as competitors, look at ways to work together to get a bigger draw.
3. Identify a few connected members of your contact list – the woman who always throws well-attended parties or the man who leads the bowling league. Find ways to build deeper connections with your former clients who do more and know more people in the community.
4. Contact a few of your ideal clients and ask them specifically for testimonials. Ask to post it on social media and tag them – this puts your name in front of their contact list, something they likely haven’t done despite their fondness for you.
5. Send a survey to your database asking some fun, nondiscriminatory questions. The information you gather can help you better identify ways to add value to your database and get more business from people just like them.

You haven’t had a showing in weeks and you don’t know why? Here is a quick checklist for your listing… and some ideas on getting more eyeballs, showing appointments and of course an offer on that property!
Price… That is always the number 1 go to whenever a listing isn’t being shown… The market is constantly changing so redo those comps and see if anything new has hit the market, sold or gone under contract. Make sure to truly compare other active and contingent properties to your listing as if you were a buyer. Compare price per sq ft, upgrades, curb appeal, and everything else about a property to see why a buyer would chose yours over the other active properties in the area.
Did you use professional photos? What do your photos look like? My biggest pet peeve is non – professional photos, all of my agents knows this. To me, not only is this crucial for displaying your listing in the best possible way, it is also representing you and the way you do business! As a buyer choosing an agent I know that I would be checking out any agent I am considering by checking out how they are marketing their other listings (regardless of price)! Your listings are representing you, your business as well as any listings you have. Make sure you are showcasing your listing in the absolute best way and using a professional photographer who knows the way to capture this is my #2 (Pretty close to #1)
Make sure you are looking at the Feedback from other agents and buyers about the property and discussing this with your Sellers. More often then not we are looking at our listings from a REALTOR view versus a Buyers view and this feedback is crucial for the sale of your listing. Whether it is pricing, smell, paint, curb appeal, layout, clutter, etc. Make sure to address the small things that you can improve with little to no money.
What are you doing as far as marketing? Yes, your listing goes into the MLS which will feed the listing everywhere. However, you have many other opportunities that are free or advertising at a minimal cost! For example, at RE/MAX Elite you could take advantage of the marketing material that gets emailed to you automatically (property website, flyers, postcards, social posts, youtube video, adwerx FREE web&social ads) as well as property landing pages you can use for Facebook Advertising and we also have several agents always looking to advertise your listing for you! If you want some help with advertising and marketing your listing, contact Heather and she will send out an email to our lead team and they will advertise your listing to try and bring you a buyer! Win Win!!! Don’t forget we have a Listing Checklist, check that out as well for some marketing ideas!
5. OPEN HOUSE / BROKER OPEN
If all of the above is great and the listing is still stale OR you have made improvements to the home and need to get the Agents / Buyers back in for another look, consider doing an Open House or a Broker Open! Partner up with a Lender and / or Title Company to help you with the cost of food, games and marketing to reach the maximum amount of people! Make sure to get feedback from everyone who attends! Check out our Open House Checklist, make it a MEGA Open House by inviting the neighbors over for an exclusive sneak peek! Even better, knock on the doors with a flyer to the neighbors to invite them!
Overall, make sure to look at every aspect of your listing from a Buyers perspective to analyze why you are not getting showings! Some items will be a quick fix but some things like location, curb appeal, uniqueness, repairs, etc of course will make the property harder to sell because you will be looking for a very specific buyer.. but hey, you may be able to target that ideal buyer with a facebook ad! If you are looking for more information, guidance or help, set up your appointment with Heather today!

“In any operation, join up with the best. You will gain from the strengths from those around you”- Warren Buffett
that a new year has arrived, have you set your 2019 goals? Are they
strong enough to keep momentum through the year? This season often has
us reflecting on the past 365 days and dreaming about what the next
twelve months could contain. With so many people giving up on their
resolutions in the first three months, it’s important that our goals
have the strength to keep us moving forward.
have shown writing down your goals is the first step in achieving them –
after all, keeping your “eye on the prize” is a natural motivator.
Keeping your vision clearly in front of you helps it stay top of mind,
something everyone from Napoleon Hill to Tony Robbins encourages for
making it a reality. Here are three tips to keep your goals progressing
through the year:
This acronym stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Being specific includes the who, what, when, where, and why of the goal. Measurable means quantifying where you are now and where you want to be with methods in place to track progress. Attainable
means that your goals can be met in the timeline. It also asks you to
consider what it would take to make it possible. For example, do you
need a new credential? More administrative support? More contacts in
your database? Being realistic doesn’t mean setting
your goals low, but rather setting them in a way that stretches you
while also being possible. Be honest with yourself and ask if you are
willing and able to do the work required to achieve the goal. If so, it
is realistic. Finally, make it timely by giving
yourself a deadline – or multiple deadlines if you break down the goal
into building blocks. Deadlines create a sense of urgency that pushes us
to get it done.
There is a lot to be
said about gratitude, fun, and celebration. Sometimes we get so driven
and focused on outcomes that we forget to celebrate the small stuff.
Make it a regular practice to look for fun in your day, express
gratitude for the progress you are making, and celebrate each small
achievement on your way to your big goals.
Don’t consider it a failure if something doesn’t quite work. Sometimes goals are made, but then life happens – something unexpected and out of your control surfaces. Give yourself time, permission, and grace to re-evaluate and adjust.
