It’s a different world out there.Information is everywhere; and it’s not gated.
Prospects are not reliant upon your access to the MLS to explore properties.Ironically, the openness of information has made us more distant in our communications; in our desire to have real conversations with people we do business with.Some of us prefer to text versus talk, or voice and email to dialogue.
Yes, it’s a different world.
It’s competitive.We’re concerned about efficiency’s and time management.I wonder, if we didn’t spend so much time managing our time would we become more efficient?If we invested our time into people instead of automation?
It’s a different world.In fact, imagine you were from Mars.You met a real estate agent and asked them what they did for a living.What would your conversation be like?
Martian: What does a real estate agent do for a living?
Agent: I sell houses.
Martian: Do you make them before you sell them?
Agent: No, I just sell them.
Agent: I arrange the buyer and the seller.
Martian: OK; how do you find the buyer?
Agent: I invest money and time into marketing to create name recognition.When someone decides to buy a home, hopefully they will think of me.If they call me, I put them into my database system that automatically sends them lists of properties.I ask them to rate the properties; save their favorites.I send them emails and text messages reminding them to call me.
Martian: But, I thought they already did call you.
Agent: Well yes, but I want them to call me when they are ready to buy.
Martian: So when do you know they are ready to buy?
Agent: Well they call me.
Martian: But they already did call you.
Agent: Yes, I know, look it’s complicated.Sometimes they weren’t really ready to buy; or I never qualifed them.. or; look it’s complicated.It’s not as easy as it sounds.
Martian: Wouldn’t it be easier if you skipped all the auto-responders, texts and emails and just talked to them?
