Make it easy on me to get a client to you. So many new home subdivisions don't want to pay a co-broke. This makes it hard for an outside agent. If I have a client that happens to drive around for the day and come in they say "I am being represented by Brad Bergamini with xyzâ€ It would be nice to be able to come back and show the benefits of your homes without fear of a commission lost. If you make it clear in writing to outside agents that they will get paid, it will help loosen the belt and give them reason to promote your properties.
We all wish to act in the best interest of our clients and sometimes that means sending them your websites and print material. Most of my clients understand the rules and donâ€™t venture into the subdivision without me. But it would be nice if I could just fax my client information to the new home sales office.
Just a thought,
In turn, I've sent out email blasts to my 1500+ database of buyers/sellers that include their homes sometimes. That slow nurturing of the relationship has worked for them to me. I know they do that with multiple agents. When you analyze any market, most of the real estate is being sold by 4% OR LESS of all agents. Start by concentrating on them, intersect professionally where they are and build from there.
Great question!! Thanks for asking us what we think!
