Yesterday, I met with a buyer for the first time after he CONTACTED ME VIA EMAIL to help him buy his first house.
Fortunately, he agreed to meet me at my office so that we can discuss his situation and what his requirements are.
I couldn't help but ask him, "Why did you choose me as your REALTOR" since he found me on the internet. I was dying to know.
And this is what he said why he chose me as his REALTOR:
... I searched online for an agent who knows the area
... I found your name on line, and decided to check you out, in addtion to other agents.
...I visited your website, and what you wrote made an impression because you provided very good information about buying
... It seemed that you are very professional at what you do
...but best of all, it seemed that you really LIKE WHAT YOU DO. And that's very important to work with someone who enjoys what she's doing.
1. Be visible on the internet. Have a professional website. Blog, blog, blog. Thanks, Active Rain for having me in this forum!
2. Offer good information that people want to know. Your site shouldn't only be about your listings or how great you are. Ask yourself: if you were a buyer/seller, what do you want to know?
3. How you present yourself makes a huge difference. It isn't only about your being a top sales person. Express yourself in why you are in this business. I had indicated that I found my "bliss" in real estate, and that even as a kid, I had always loved architecture. My joy in being a realtor is real.
