There is no question, every Real Estate Sales Representative has unique needs for their business. Not everyone is at the same stage in their business and therefore, you’ll want customized services that suit your needs.
I’ve recently adjusting my pricing for all the services offered at CreativNess. Check out the list below. If you have a task to complete but don’t see it below, don’t fret – shoot me over an email and let me know. I’m always eager to take on new challenges.

New Listing CreativNess Feature Sheet

Send me over the details of your new listing and I will create the feature sheet for you and email back to you the same day in a PDF document. *This pricing ONLY applies to a feature sheet template you have purchased through CreativNess.

Life is busy! Sometimes our best of intentions don’t always work out how we expected them to. Take advantage of CreativNess’s Contact Management Accountability program. Once you’ve purchased the Contact Management Clean-up Package, Ness will make sure you’re accountable for all new contacts moving forward. Together we will pick a day each week for me to call you and a time that is convenient for you.

Ness will then upload all contacts into your database management system and make sure they are applied to the proper action plan. *This package can be completed on a daily or weekly basis. Whatever works best for you.
Client Showing Feedback
Providing your home sellers with feedback from showings of their home is imperative. It allows you an opportunity to stay in contact with the home seller but more importantly, it provides your home seller with insight into what prospective buyers think of their home. Often times your home seller can make slight adjustments based on the feedback that will increase the salability of their home. Ness will call the showing agent for the proper feedback. Enter the information into your database management program and compose an email with a summary. This can either be emailed directly to your home seller and/or directly to you. Why spend your precious time on a tedious task when you could be doing what you do best?
Weekly/Monthly Featured Listing Email to Your Contacts
Upon your personal preference, Ness will either weekly or monthly send out an email to your prospective buyers with a list of feature listings on the market. Sometimes our marketing strategies are overlooked. Take this opportunity to shine light on your featured listings and increase the chances of your listings being seen.
Personal Notes/Thank You/Birthday Cards/Anniversary and Special Occasions
What better way to add value to your clients then sending them an unexpected handwritten card?
Following your pre-designed script, Ness will give handwritten notes to your contacts upon request. These cards are written, inserted into an envelope, labelled, sealed and mailed same day. I recommend you include at least 2 business cards per mailing.*You are to give Ness the proper cards and stamps. Arrangements can be made for Ness to purchase for you at an extra fee.
