It was a beautiful day in Shasta County yesterday and a great day for open houses. I was on my way to our new listing in Anderson putting out the team signs. We had a great open house, and because of our signs so did the agents along the path to The Largent Team listing.
On my way out of the subdivision I stopped at the other agents open house and she said, "wow! your signs are on every corner." I apologized and said the good news is that all the folks who came to my open house should have stopped by yours, cookies in hand!.
We talked about our listings and I commented on how nicely staged her listing was. I continued on picking up my signs and was stopped by the neighbor of this listing. We chatted a bit and talked about all the listings in the subdivision. The woman recognised our brand from the post card campaign and asked about the new listing.
What should have been a 3-hour open house actually turned into 5-hours, putting out signs, 30 minutes chatting with the neighbors before the open house, and chatting after. It all started with the signs, I just didn't get out of my car and put them away, I looked for someone to say hello to.
We have sold two listings in this area in the past few months and were contacted by our listing because of our presence in the subdivision. Take the time to put out as many signs as you can and invite folks to your open house, it works.
