As we near the end of 2007, we start preparing for the 2008 year. I just recently read that numbers nearing 150 -250K realtors will be exiting our buisness. It can be an opportune time to step back and evaluate our plans of action and how we hande our business daily. With the added extra time, re-evalute what makes your business work and what doesn't. Weed out the dandelions and bring in the dafodils for spring. Plant the seeds this fall for next years crop!
Action! Take action right now to build your leads for the 2008 year. It too will be a challenging year, but if prepared, we will succeed. Walk your farms. I heard ofi a realtor who walks 50 houses daily in his farm and hands out his news letter. Five days a week, 250 homes, 1000 homes a month! Now thats ACTION.. Take this time to be kind and sensitive to your past clients. Let them know you care. Some of us have not taken this action of managing our past clients. Just open the door to a new conversation, and rekindle the relationship. Remember, they choose you for a reason over all the other realtors.
