2018 Americas Best Ranking

Congratulations on being ranked as one of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals sponsored by Adwerx! Due to your success and those of your peers, those represented on America’s Best closed a remarkable 1,075,263.97 sides and more than $371 billion in sales volume for 2017—a 20.5 percent increase in sales volume from last year.

Nearly 14,000 U.S. real estate sales associates from every state are featured. To be included in the ranking, agents must have closed at least 50 transactions or $20 million in closed sales volume in 2017.  Teams must have closed 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume in 2017. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party to ensure accuracy and report integrity.

Other notable recognitions of RE/MAX agents and team leaders in the 2018 REAL Trends “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals” rankings:

  • RE/MAX qualified 3,146 agents, Keller Williams was second with 2,518 and Coldwell Banker was third with 1,630.
  • 22.7 percent of the agents in the survey are RE/MAX agents, the highest percentage ever for RE/MAX and a significant increase over 19.9% last year. The number of RE/MAX qualifiers grew by 640 agents.
  • 28 percent of the rankings for transaction sides (2,805 of 9,883) went to RE/MAX agents and team leaders.

Industry surveys continue to recognize the RE/MAX network for its high productivity. RE/MAX had more of America’s most productive agents than any other brand in the recent 13th Annual REAL Trends “The Thousand.” RE/MAX agents have claimed the most rankings in the respected survey three out of the last four years. RE/MAX associates also outperformed participating agents with other real estate brands in the 2018 REAL Trends 500 survey. For the eighth consecutive year, RE/MAX agents in the survey on average outsold competing agents – averaging more than twice as many closed sales than agents at other participating large brokerages.

Open House Checklist!

Many agents come to me and are looking for ways to MAXimize their Open House experience so I thought I would put together the 5 basic steps as a checklist for getting people thru the door!

Read more details below the graphic…..

  1. Add the Open House info to the MLS, realtor.com, Zillow & remax.com as well as any other website that will allow you to do this!  This will give consumers searching online the information!
  2. Let neighbors know! Knock or send postcards!  Most of your neighbors chose this area for a reason and when they love their neighborhhood, they will let their friends, co-workers, etc know about the Open House!
  3. Send email to sphere & other agents!  Using e-blast or other email program.. let your prospects looking in this area know as well as other agents who can send their clients to your Open House!  RE/MAX Elite Agents – Heather can set up a FREE mailchimp account and help you through this process!  If you are using our KV system, send out notifications is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
  4. Post info with photos on FB, run targeted ad!  Post your Open House Flyer, Listing Flyerr (you can use the flyer that is automatically sent to you with our Automated Listing Marketing services or Heather can help you create a gorgeous flyer in your Design Center)!  Post this flyer or multiple photos to facebook with a link to the property website for full details and run a local ad on Facebook!  ~Not sure how?  no worries, get with Heather and she can create one for you!
  5. Make sure you have a minimum of 10-15 branded Open House directional signs!  You can gain a lot of eyeballs for your Open House as well as you personally with these branded Open House signs!  Soon people will be telling you that they see your signs EVERYWHERE!  So even if you have a low turn out for your Open House, know that your name has been seen by all of the drive by traffic!!  Put out a minimum of 10-15 signs!!!

Of course this is the basics… if you want to add more, set up your appointment with Heather today!  You know her head is a scary place to be!  😉

Susan’s Top 10 Sales Tips!

10 Sales Tips Susan covered in this week’s class:

Time Management – Concentrate on managing income producing activities.

Database CLEANSE- It should only contain Past Clients and Sphere of Influence contacts that you know on some personal level, have done business with you or doing business with you. Ideally, 150 names in your database and produce 25-50% of your business.

Decide to work with Buyers or Sellers – Know your ratios!

Lead follow up – How do you schedule following up your leads?

Pre-qualifying Buyers and Sellers – Do you have a questionnaire you use all the time?

Listing presentations – Do you have a good listing presentation and a pre-listing package?

Handling objections – Practice overcoming objections every day.

Closing the deal – What do you say to close the deal?

Negotiating contracts – Become the best negotiator you can be!

Money Management – Know your business expenses and profit

 

Contact me if you want to master or implement any of these sales tips. I am just a phone call away! ☺

A Moment with an Elite Agent – Kelsey Friedrich, REALTOR

Technology & Marketing Coach, Heather Holliday interviewing our Video Rockstar Kelsey Friedrich!

Q: You are killing it with video Kelsey, what made you decide to implement video into your business?

A: Starting in real estate at 18 years old was really tough because people thought I was too young… using video really allowed me to connect better with my clients versus email and text.

 

Q: What was your biggest hurdle getting starting?

A: Not knowing where to start, what software to use or ideas for videos. You knew it was something you wanted to do but getting started was hard.

 

Q: How has RE/MAX Elite helped you with your video strategy?

A: Organizing the Video Boot Camp with Michael Thorne & Jesse Peters last year it gave me a ton of information and strategies to use and RE/MAX Elite set up the Video studio which allowed me to get started with my videos. I now have my own studio but RE/MAX Elite helped guide me through the process with ideas, techniques and encouragement and I don’t think I could have gotten as far as I have so quickly without it….

 

Q: How has doing video helped your with your business?

A: It has helped people get to know me before working with me, I feel authentic and I get a lot of responses that I am helping people with real estate knowledge…… and it gets a lot of traction and engagement with my social sphere. 😉
