When thoughts of fishing turn to prospecting.

When thoughts of fishing turn to prospecting.

Fishing is a strategy much like prospecting for clients:

  • Fishing: The moment to pull your pole upward at precisely the same time a fish makes a commitment.
  • Prospecting: Engage potential client to show the benefits of choosing you as their real estate agent.
  • Fishing: React too soon to the tug on the line and gone is the fish.
  • Prospecting: Stay the course and follow up and follow through consistently.
  • Fishing: Pull too hard and you may lose your bait, the rigging and the fish!
  • Prospecting: You may lose a few but if you wait for it, success is yours!

The best advice I am able to give regarding fishing or prospecting is to be patient...

And wait for it...BAM! A catch!

Fish on!  I've often thought that real estate is similar to how we get our food:  Fishing, farming and harvesting.  And hunting.

Great analogy, Wanda.  I use the same "fishing" analogy for pricing a property right!  Especially, when I know the homeowner enjoys sporting events, like fishing.  Why place your pole with the bait in the water just barely below the water surface in hopes of catching that one fish that might jump up at it.  Put that pole and bait DOWN at a level that MANY fish are and hope that many fish jump at that bait.

plus put a lot of rods in the water to expand the opportunity of catching more and bigger fish!

AS in fishing, the lure of use needs to be attractive to the potential client.
