The Other Agent Said They'd Do It For Less Commission

So you're finally on the listing appointment, you've prepared, researched, set aside time, got over the fears and anxieties of walking up to the front door.  You've walked through the home and discussed your marketing plan, the right price and they like what you have to say but "The other agent agreed to reduce their commission"

So you you do one of two things.  You agree to reduce yours or you powerfully and confidently handle this objection and ask them to sign with you at your…

The Secrets To Objection Handling

The Secrets To Objection Handling

Guys if you’re in real estate, accept that you’re going to get objections!

All sellers want the most money for their home, they want you to cut your commission, they want lots of advertising, and open houses, they only want to list for 30 days, etc.  All buyers say they’re “good” without talking with a lender, want to look before being qualified, want to see every home on the market before they buy, don’t need an agent; and the list goes…

How Do You Find The Time For Everything?

If you missed our business planning call last week the fifth topic we discussed was scheduling and time management.  Two of the most important factors in having a highly successful business.  One of the biggest keys to this business not consuming you is following a daily schedule.  The more consistent you are with your daily routine the more consistent your results will be, the less time it will take, and the more control you’ll have over both your life and your business.

As I search the MLS, I’m finding it much harder to find a desired home for them. The reason is very logical, there are not a lot of home in the Upper Marlboro inventory. A year ago there were 305 homes in the listing inventory. As of the end of October there were just 186, a decrease of 39%. Of the 186 available listings, 66 are bank mediated. The  small inventory can be…

Make It Easy

The Fourth topic in my business planning call was Tips for creating efficiency in your business and systems

You want to make handling your business as easy and as efficient as possible. 

As I've mentioned in my previous articles, I’ve ran a business from 35 deals to over 140 over the years.  And I’ve used the same systems throughout the duration. They’re simple, manual, and most of all efficient.  They are set up so that anyone can hop in and help and so that I…

It takes both desire and discipline to make it in any sales business but especially real estate and the market conditions we’ve been under.  Although it is finally starting to show improvement in many areas, the business has undoubtedly changed over the last several years.

Desire and discipline go hand in hand.  Rarely can you have what you want in life without having the desire to get it, and the discipline to do what you need to do to get there.

The desire comes first.  Your…

Expired Listings

Just reading the words makes some of you nervous on various levels I'm sure.  Both having a listing expire yourself, and thinking about calling on an expired listing.

I have built my business by calling and mailing to expired and FSBO listings.  As a listing agent myself, I've had listings expire and had the seller relist with a different agent.  It happens to all of us and is completely okay.  Your life and your business will go on if your sellers don't relist with you.  Of course as…
