lead generation: Calling Expireds - 03/15/18 06:51 AM

I thought it insightful. Most amazing is the owners repeated comment "I didn't know."
What do you think?

... only to have the investment wasted as they watch it all fall apart around them.
To me, it’s simply tragic … and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen it happen.

What do you do?
In the business of real estate, as a professional, we are all engaged in the daily activity of prospecting. Many use the personal touch and meet with as many people as possible. Many more use methods that are not so personal.

Annette Lawrence, Another look at Internet traffic

First a field is needed in which to grow rice.
Next, the time and resources to sprout the seeds.
Ability to transplant the sprouts into a field
Then, from what I have seen. lots of water to flood the field with.
Then, one must WAIT.
If the craving for rice for dinner is to be satisfied, can you simply … (2 comments)
