You have to understand that you will always find someone that will say YES if you are willing to go through all the NO's. A lot people talk about cold calling is dead, but it's not I have built my entire business by cold calling. The people most likely saying is cold calling is dead is because they either suck on the phone or no that many people fear rejection of the over the phone and if they can find another way instead of cold calling they will. At the end of the pay people do love speaking to other people but they don't like people that did not capture their attention. This is why in the first 4 seconds something about your voice your energy through the phone captivates them to listen to you. FIRST RULE: everyone LOOOVVEESSSS talking about themselves so..... guess, WHAT! ? Start asking them questions that will get them to talk about themselves and all you have to do is listen and keep them feeling comfortable speaking with you.

It's not hard but with the world of social media people have forgotten that people still LOVE speaking to other people. We all do it everyday. So become interesting, standout, find your voice and pick up the phone and start making cold calls. AND if you are too afraid or just one of those types of people that knows their strength is not in starting a conversation with a stranger but very good once the conversation has been started by someone else and they can then take over from there or find an assistant or hire a part time telemarketer or hire companies like Exclusive Calls to dial numbers for you for $0.75 a dial. It's easy for me all I do is email them the list I want worked and the script and they send me back the results.

Here is the truth if you want it bad enough you will get it, knock on doors and pick up the phone and cold call. Pick one and just do it.

Most likely no. You need to refer to the contract you signed when you joined them as to what happens to pending sales when you leave. Some give you your agreed to commission, some half and some none. You need to refer to your contrct ... more

Check out a few schools online or not online. You can't have someone take the test for you or both you and that person will get into big trouble! Don't give up just because you failed the first time! ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
On face value it could seem a benign question, but the fact that it's odd leads me to believe there may be something more to it than that. Cities and neighborhoods flow much more easily in conversation than zip codes. I'd inquire of the person asking why they want to know, and would leave it at that. I wouldn't answer. ... more

They want to save time and don’t want to worry about sifting through Craigslist responses and whatever else.
Besides, some of them fail to manage a proper tenant screening and think that realtor will perform the verification of applicants better. ... more

Your duties are the same, regardless of the type of property. You want to always keep your client's best interests in mind, disclosing any known material defects you area aware of, negotiating the best possible price and terms for your client, etc. Maybe you need to re-read your buyer agency agreement and see exactly what you're supposed to do for the buyer! :) ... more

Hello, I did my search for a Florida Online Real Estate School that had the REcampus courses. I've been told by several florida real estate agents that REcampus courses are the very best you can get to pass the Florida State Exam. After comparing all the schools that has the REcampus course I found that the best Florida Real Estate School online is called Rowlett Real Estate School. In addition to the course, they offer narrated videos in student resources at no charge which was a plus since most schools charge you for every little thing. I was very impressed with this school. I am looking forward to getting my brokers license with them. I would recommend to anyone wanting to take a Florida online real estate course for a Florida real estate license to check out Rowlett. They have great customer support and were very helpful every time I called. Good Luck with your choice. ... more

There's no way we could walk you through a contract online. Every Realtor works under the supervision and direction of a Broker. It's your Broker's job to instruct and train you so that is the person to ask about this. ... more

I'm guessing someone put in an escalation clause up to $89K. Congratulations, and make sure you do your due diligence on the property. Most of the homes sold by Hubzu have serious issues, so you absolutely need to review everything you can and have a thorough inspection. ... more
