Earth Day is Wednesday - Emphasize the Green

By
Mortgage and Lending with Keller Williams Realty of Manatee

Earth day is approaching, and most of us are too busy trying to sell the inventory of homes we carry to pay any mind to it!

If you stop and think about it though, we really need to take the time. So why not incorporate Earth Day into our busy work day?

Some suggestions -

Talk to your neighbors about Earth Day, or neighboring homes where you have listings.

Door knock. Ask each resident if they are recycling. If not, provide them with a hand out, explaining to them how they can receive free recycle bins, what is recyclable, and even what day their recycling is picked up! Be sure to include your contact information, and open the conversation up by letting them know it is Earth Day!

If you don't like the idea of door knocking, set up an information table in your driveway or in the driveway of one of your listings.

Emphasize green features of the homes you are selling - in the name of Earth Day. Example: Were there new windows installed? ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME - SAVING YOU MONEY AND THE PLANET!

Get involved in community events in your area. This is a great way to get out and meet new people, with like minded interests, and a way to create a genuine warm connection! You can even shamelessly promote your team or brokerage by wearing your name tag or company t-shirt!

Celebrate the Earth and educate your community.

This is really a great way to get involved in the community, isn't it?  Sponsoring a recycling ben for newspapers and magazines, getting a store to donate a certain number of recycle bins to drop off at homes in your farm for Earth Day - the possibilities are endless!
