More not so basic tips

More not so basic tips 

It is very important that
when you send anything to a
past or current client
that you address it to them
personally (not occupant)

If you can find the time to
hand write something
it will make all the difference.

Items like notepads with
your picture and information
on them keeps you in their mind.

When you sell a home
give your buyers some postcards
with the picture of their
new home on it to send to friends.

Remember
always include
you contact information on them.

Thomas, This is such a good reminder of things that will keep us, as Real Estate agents, in the mind of our clients. 

I took a course one time that had us writing 5 handwritten notes a day and mailing thme out.  I received more calls and responses from those notes.

I have been thinking of getting note pads with my info (and perhaps photo) on them - they can use them for whatever they want, but they'll have to face me everytime they do something!

Anytime you can make it personal you'll get a much better response.  Many agents stick with bulk mailings so hopefully they heed this advice.

Good tips. I  just saw some terrific note pads someone had made. I think I'll get some, too.

After 33 years, I see marketing procedures have not changed inspite of the internet. When I started there were no computers.

When you sell a home offer to send postcards out to their family and friends and you will have their contact information.

Margaret, mine are ordered.

Bryan, I always make it Personal.

Brad, Hope you have success with it.

David, I know what you mean. My first office used books to find listings, he had a computer but did not like to see you us it!

Evelyn, I tried that thought it put to much pressure on them to give me names all at once.

A personal touch is always a positive touch and one that every agent should make sure they are doing, unless you don't like referrals or repeat business.
