How do you make the phone ring?

Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty Homeward Bound

Its pretty simple concept. . we pay hundreds of dollars a month for our high tech cell phones, charge them and hope they ring.  We can check our email, text our friends, look up weather, check the latest scores, check our MLS, download apps, and do hundreds of other fun little things.  How do we apply these things to make our phones ring for Real Estate Sales purposes?  I'll let you know a little secret. .  . We should use our phones to make calls. . what a novel idea. 

The basic Truth is this. . the more calls you make - the more calls you will receive.  Sometimes when you left your magic wand at home and "yelling" at your phone doesn't make it ring - make some calls. . Call your favorite mortgage brokers, inspectors, and/or appraisers.  Just Say Hello! offer your services - ask if they need anything.  Call your previous clients and offer them tickets to a cheap basketball game in your area or Farm-Team game.  The best part of this whole practice is that its free or very low cost!  Spending $20 on hockey tickets goes a long way because most of your clients can't find babysitters or are already busy.  The thought is still there! 

Outgoing calls create incoming calls. .

just a thought!

That is certainly true.  Outgoing calls to create incoming calls.  In this day and age we sometimes forget it is the simple efforts that bring business our way. ~Doug
