Success from farming a specific neighborhood in Rochester, MN for over 5 yrs

Real Estate Agent with Property Brokers of MN

Tami here from Rochester, MN.  I have been farming a neighborhood in Rochester, MN for over 5 yrs and it has been very worthwhile in my business.  I sponsor a neighborhood website:, sponsor the neighborhood garage sales every May, and sponsor the National Night Out Picnic every August.  I have met a lot of the residents and have had a number of listings and sales from this farming.  I go door to door with flyers, neighborhood news flyers, invites to open houses, upcoming events, and more.   Consistency and patience does pay off.

I agree, great post.  I'm working on a new farm area, and I remember from before that it takes awhile to start seeing results, but I'm determined to see it work!  I would've kept my old area, but I moved so far away from it that it was too much work.  Keep up the great work.
