I commiserate but this is old news. Brokers rely on a business model that has you as the "bird dog" - you get paid well when a sale is made but there's a lot of hard work and expense to get there. Your due diligence of the business should have shown you that.

Brokers advocate contacting your warm market /personal sphere or whatever lingo they use to say find sellers/buyers because its most likely to yield a client - a client who normally is willing to overlook that you are a newbie..

You should be encouraged by the fact that everything they recommend works but it's so flipping slow and/or it costs money. You can dedicate yourself to cold calling (oh the joy) but it's cheap and slow. Farming with PCs is a bit faster but costs $ and has poor response rates.

I spent many hours cold calling lists. I found I had to make 187 calls to get one strong lead. (I tracked my numbers). Like I said it works but ouch.

I came to the conclusion that an agent's (any business really) real challenge is speaking to "enough" people on a regular basis --without the pain stress and time sink of cold calling.

I found a solution that helps generate between 5-25 INCOMING calls a week.

John Sestito answered:
Have you checked Craigslist? I know that some private owners advertise their properties on that site. Often times owners will put a yard sign in front of an available rentals, so if you have an area in mind, you may want to drive around to look for these signs.

Do you plan to move from the Casselberry area? For example, I believe there are some rentals in the Highlands area of Winter Springs that meet your budget.

Wow. Well are they good tenants or do you just want to gauge them because you can? What type of jobs do they have? Do you even see them as human beings or just as "market value?"
