outside the box: Milk And Cookies: Not Just For Santa. (Holiday Tip #7) - 12/20/17 12:19 PM

Howdy ActiveRainers,
How often do you treat your clients and/or leads to a little something extra special?
If you need motivation during the holiday season - think of it this way: Santa's on a diet this year. So, deliver those treats to a worthy person in your database before the relationship (and treats) get stale.
Sound good? ;-)

outside the box: Spreading Holiday Cheer Means Good Karma. (Holiday Tip #4) - 12/15/17 02:10 PM
 
Howdy ActiveRainers,
This holiday marketing tip is pretty straightforward, wouldn't you say?
Sharing resources that aren't directly real estate related will diversify your reputation - plus, it's just good for business. What goes around, comes around, agreed? Use your best judgement to recommend and suggest places you trust and respect. 
So, any places come to mind?

Quick question - can you name this (slightly edited) tune?
 
If you want to view paradise...
Simply look around and view it...
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the YOUR world?

We'll begin...With a spin...
Traveling in the world of my YOUR creation...
What we'll see...Will defy...

outside the box: Hungry For Referrals & Listings? This'll Do. - 07/05/16 09:18 AM
 
Hey there,
Tim here, again, with a quick Tip & Script Of The Week.

When people aren’t fed, they’re cranky and irritable.
The same goes for your leads – when they don't feel routinely nourished, cared about, and/or spoon-fed relevant info - they will likely stomp off to one of the 2 other agents they know.

In short – remember that “satiated” (nurtured) leads and clients translate into a (financially) satisfied and successful agent (that's you).

With that said – take this advice literally. 
Treat promising leads and valued clients to some easy-on-the-wallet grub. Here are a few holidays (and accompanying email greetings) worth considering, … (0 comments)
