I think you can have great success door knocking. I have had many listings come as a result of it. There are agents in my office who get a great % of their business from door knocking. Seldom has anyone ever been rude to me.
Take the plunge!
When the man answered, she said hello and asked if he was thinking of selling. (After all, why else would God send her that message?) He looked suspiciously both ways and asked, â€œHave you been spying on me?â€ When she asked why, he said, â€œWe only decided to sell our house about thirty minutes ago! How did you find out so fast?â€
Naturally, he invited her in, she told them the story, she got the listing, had a buyer already for it herself, and put it all together for the two happy families â€“ with a $20,000 total commission for her. A fabulous result for door-knocking.
But the best part of this story is when she told it to our family. My six-year-old daughterâ€™s eyes lit up! When she heard about the money, she said, â€œHey Grandma, I could get a little old lady dress and some little old lady glasses and some little old lady boots and I could go out door-knocking with you!â€ She figured all she needed was the right â€œlookâ€ to overcome her age and people would sell with her, too.
I also am not receptive to people knocking on my door, and I am sure that influences my resistance to knocking on another persons door. I am sensitive to invading their time and space on my terms and schedule with disregard to their current activity at the moment. Perhaps if I got over that, I could find success in door knocking.
