Real estate manager is all for a real estate agent. Without leads you will not get customers without customers, you will not be paid. In that regard, a real estate agent is a base job to collect and work with its real estate management. These properties lead into which professionals call a pipeline or field of influence. Your pipeline should never be empty, because if it does, it means you do not have the opportunity to get a stable income. An agent spends his time converting these properties leads to buyers and sellers to make their paycheck. For every customer who buys or sells a home, you get a commission. If you do not have any customers you have no income. Its a very basic fact.
So the questions remain, where do you get real estate managers from? Well, to be honest, a successful agent always collects wires. You collect property management from references from past customers, from sending out newsletters, postcards, emails etc. You keep open houses for your lists, you talk to everyone and all you can wherever you are at a party, at dinner, shopping. The average person moves every 5 7 years, so the odds are quite good that someone you meet today will sell their home within five years. It seems a terrible long time to wait for a listing but not if you have plenty of opportunities to work in the meantime and you continue to follow up the management until they move and need a real estate agent. The conclusion is that a successful agent will get real estate management for themselves wherever they go.
Then, of course, there are the various services out there that sell real estate, most are generated online. Companies like GetMyHomesValue, HouseValues and also RE MAX will sell potential properties leading agents to a fee. These companies are a good source of prospects, but are often questioned for quality of their joints. Often agents will sign up for a company that generates property management and then become furious that they did not receive a listing in the first month. What should really be questioned is what exactly constitutes a property management?
Many agents say someone who wants to buy or sell within the next six months to a year. It seems like a very narrow definition of the term, and to be honest, agents who use that definition probably do not get lots of commission checks in the month. Successful agents understand that a property relationship is about anyone who may be able to use their service anytime in the next 5 years. It is easy to get a list of someone who only has to sell their home within the next 3 months they are desperate and usually use the first agent they come across. The true test of skill comes when you try to convert a client to your service when they may not be looking to go somewhere for a year or two. If you can convert a client that way, you are likely to have success with your property management and real estate in general in the coming years.
The sad fact is that 20 percent of real estate agents out there do 80 percent of the business and the remaining 80 percent of the agents out there fail miserably and leave the business within a few years. They are not willing to build a management management line, no matter how far they sell buy the process they can be, and they are not willing to do what it takes to convert these leads to customers.
Real Estate is a sales and service industry. If you are not willing to help your property even lead before they become customers, they will not likely be clients at all. Why are they going to? There is always another real estate agent who is more than willing to go the extra mile to get his business.
To succeed in real estate, you must see potential real estate management in everything you do and wherever you go. And then you have to be willing to do everything in your power to show that it means you are the best agent for the job, otherwise they will move on to the next. Actually, you should only treat your property management as if they are already a customer of yours, for those with safety and a little extra work will really be.
