Feed them and they will come - 08/30/08 01:20 PM
We have all heard the expression feed them and they will come. I'm wondering what others think if this is necessary to get agents to view their properties on caravan day. In the area that I work, we have been feeding agents or a long time, and it makes know difference on what the market conditions are. Our MLS/Claw even has a submission for refreshments. I have mixed feeling about whether this works or not, but we do it for the sake of the client. I know that the clients like when you do this, they feel you are going the (1 comments)

Please Return Calls - 08/17/08 06:38 PM
The good news is that the phones in the office are ringing and buyers are out there looking, either to buy or lease. It seems everyone is really eager for your help. You spend time searching and even showing them properties then they disappear. You call and email, but they don't get back to you. You wonder what did I do wrong, we really seem to hit it off. They either disappear or you later find out that they are calling every broker and out looking with other agents. Any tips other then getting them to sign a buyers contract. (1 comments)

We need to stay positive - 08/02/08 12:46 PM
I know everyone will agree with me when I say that we are in a tough market. It is extremely difficult to stay focused and positive when we are being faced with the gloom and doom of the housing market. Everyday we are reminded by the media and our clients about market conditions and that it's not going to get any better. Enough about all the negative!!! We need to get the excitement back in what we do and rethink how we do business. Agents need to communicate with each other, you need to be visible. One of the best ways that (0 comments)
