Having just had arthroscopic knee surgery, I am laying here with my laptop wishing I were at an Open House this Sunday. What does one do as a Realtor when you are forced to stay off your feet for a few days?
1. Great time to do blogging - read what's going on out there and review all the listings on the MLS!
2. Call your clients and get a price reduction. Was I amazed when my client called Me yesterday to tell me it's time he took a price reduction. I could hardly believe what I was hearing - a realistic seller wanting to do what it takes to get his house sold - hurray! Maybe I should have surgery more often!
3. Work on referrals. As I was laying on the couch last night, I received a call from a Realtor I know. Much to my surprise he explained that he recently decided to go into the Commercial Real Estate Field and has a client who would like to sell his residence. Would I be interested in a referral? - WOW, I can be incapacitated and still get listings!
4. Work on relationships! Probably the most important, because without relationships I would have no business. This is a people business, isn't it? It is why so many of us are passionate about what we do - it is great being a Realtor knowing that our business continues to grow, even when we are down.
SO, if you have clients looking to buy a home on the Monterey Peninsula in California, Call me - I love your referrals, and you can be sure that I will take good care of your clients, whether I am on my feet or down with my feet in the air!
