Week # 13 ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas... Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah or Kwanza, this is a special time to be with family and friends. Take the time to enjoy it! If you will be gone, make sure you have someone handling your business. Get the financial arrangement in writing. We need to take time to be with family and friends. They need our attention too!
The way to handle a getaway in real estate is to try to do everything you can before you leave. For example, I scheduled time to write this blog before Dec. 24th, so (1 comments)
Let’s Visit Our Past Clients! - 12/18/10 07:14 PM
Week # 12. Drop-by This is a perfect time of year drop by and let them know you are thinking of them. You can bring cookies, candy homemade jam, your annual calendar (they look forward to it!) or a poinsettia. Take a moment to visit. Let them know you care. Ask them for their email or confirm the one you have. Let them know you'd like to stay in touch. Ask them if you can send them your E-newsletter with homeowner tips and market updates. They will be glad to receive it. Remember, you are pre-sold. They have a new home (3 comments)

Week # 11. Convert Your Geographic Farm to an E-Farm There are several ways to convert your geographic farm to an E-farm. Over the holidays is a great time to "drop by" and obtain emails.

Let your geo farm know that you want to "GO Green" in 2011. Let them know you'll be sending out the same quality monthly newsletter that they are used to receiving (0 comments)
Let's Party - 12/03/10 11:26 PM
Week # 10. Now is the Time to Get Out and Meet People at Holiday Events Just say yes... Attend your church or synagogue, community events, theater, ballet and concerts. Go to parties! This can be a really fun time of year. It is also a wonderful time to meet new people and see old friends. It is important to be visible. This year agents have told me that they have lost listings and sales because people (their past clients and sphere) didn't know they were still in real estate. That can be crushing. Let people know you are in real (3 comments)
