emailing: Texters, Emailers, Callers and some Non-Responders - 08/12/17 03:39 PM
Communication Preferences - What's Yours, and Theirs?
The world of communication is filled with different types of people. Some prefer to text, some want to email, others want to call, a few may even prefer or need face-to-face. And then there are some non-responders…the most challenging.
With communication being such a critical aspect of working effectively with buyers and sellers, it’s important to understand what our clients prefer so we can communicate effectively with them, and in a timely manner.

emailing: What Form of Communication do Your Sellers Prefer? - 10/08/14 12:43 AM
 What Form of Communication do Your Sellers Prefer?
Communication is obviously essential during our real estate transactions, in particular between us and our seller clients. This is true before they get an offer, and perhaps more so afterwards.
What form of communication do your sellers prefer?
Do you know?
Do you ask?

emailing: No Email? No Website? Are You Kidding? - 01/14/11 11:32 AM
No Email? No Website? Are You Kidding?  I attended a trade expo on behalf of the Southern California Chapter of CRS some months ago. As we have done in the past we collected business cards from agents who came by to talk, learn more about the CRS designation, and just talk about the real estate business. 
I was going through about 100 cards today to send a follow-up email with information, and noticed 2 cards that truly took me by surprise. 
No Email
No Website

emailing: Writing Real Estate Letters: First, Know Your Audience - 09/05/10 10:44 AM
Marte's post about writing letters that are relevant to the audience - your reader - makes so much sense.
