Am I Being Stalked?...No, I've Just Developed A Following!

By
Mortgage and Lending with Liberty Bank of Arkansas

A good following that is...I have discovered that my staged properties have developed a following, of Realtors! These smart Realtors (even though I have never met most of them) realize that my staged properties show well, and they have a increased chance of making a sale!

As I check on my staged properties I find the same Realtor cards left at these properties. So I know if one of my staged propeties meet the criterira for their client then I have a really good chance of the listing being shown by them.

I told this to a seller that called me today, and he said "I would have never thought of that as an added benefit when hiring a stager." We have an appointment tomorrow!

Great point, it's always interesting to see how many cards are left, and how many of our cards are taken.

Wow Donna,

That's great. Have you had meetings with these followers (agents). It would be good to meet them in person and develop a business relationship with them.

What a great benefit when selling staging.  It's a very concrete way of putting it.  Thanks for passing it along.
