Help the community by answering this question:


Scrubbing in Fort Lauderdale,
Those who have been in the real estate business have a long list of vendors we use on a consistant basis. We have lawn folks, our favored inspector, appraiser and the 'walk on water' finance guy.
We've got pool folks, moving folks, domolition people and clean out people. We have attorneys, investors, hard money sources and instutional buyers. We even have folks who will bring 'to die for' lunches for those open houses.
How do you expect/plan to interrupt these already established relationships?
1. You can wait unil the current cleaner drops the ball and the agent needs a new one.
2. You can help or hope the agents business improves to the exent they need more cleaners.
3. You can make a special offer
4. You can offer a collaboration opportuntiy.
5. You can do the Trulia favorite, have a iPad 'give away.'
All of these are mind ticklers to encourage you to create a VALUE POSITION that would compel an agent to give you a try. A value position that WILL be an interrupter.
Sufficient clues have been provided. When your VALUE POSITION is defined, that is the time to start spending money and contacting agents. Trust me with this, "I clean houses" will prove to be a waste of your money and the 9 nonseconds of agent time it takes to throw that message away.

Best of success,

A rapid and relatively low cost method of introducing yourself to real estate agents and real estate companies is to purchase an email address list of realtors and send e-mail postcards to the several thousand realtors around the area. There are more than 20,000 in the Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties.

You would want to research local brokerages. Set up a meeting to discuss your services, and they if they choose - they can add you to a preferred vendors list (or at least allow you to leave behind your card if anyone needs it).

I would bring with you references and a full service list for review. Also, agents sometimes look for people to add to their network, so I would get out there and meet local agents.

You also might want to consider joining a local real estate board (South Broward, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, or Palm Beach) as an affiliate member. I'm not sure on the requirements, but if you call any of the boards; they can advise of the needed procedures.

Hope this helps! Best of luck in your business!

If you are trying to promote your company with the help of the real estate companies in your area, start by getting a list of the real estate business, make an appointment and have a handy detail list of the services that you provide and why it will be a good reason to partner with you.

Best of Luck,

Simple ...just reach out to agents and as Annette mentioned give them a value proposition, ie, clean their own home for free, offer discounts to customers, etc. Most importantly build relationships!
