Let's Party

Education & Training with Real Estate Base Camp

Week # 10.        Now is the Time to Get Out and Meet People at Holiday Events

Just say yes...

Attend your church or synagogue, community events, theater, ballet and concerts. Go to parties! This can be a really fun time of year. It is also a wonderful time to meet new people and see old friends. It is important to be visible. This year agents have told me that they have lost listings and sales because people (their past clients and sphere) didn't know they were still in real estate. That can be crushing. Let people know you are in real estate. New people always ask, "What do you do?" After you tell them you are in real estate, the next question is, "How's the market?" People you haven't seen in a while will also ask you, "How's the market?"  Everyone wants to talk about real estate. Be positive, be out there. Wear your name badge whenever it is appropriate.

Obtain emails! Let them know you have a great E-newsletter with homeowner tips and market updates. Ask for their email and let them know you'd be happy to send it to them periodically.

Many agents host an annual holiday party. It is the highlight of the year for many of their friends, neighbors and past clients.

What will you do to enjoy the holidays and grow your business?
