Nice weather today. So I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and do some door knocking in my neighborhood. Most of them people were not home so I just left a door hanger along with my business cards attached to it. I met one man who was doing some work in front of his house. When I gave him my business card,first thing he asked me smiling was "How much do you think I get for my house?" I told him I am not sure. ( I didn't want to lie by making up a number ). But I told him I would be more than happy to do a CMA on his house. He said Okay. When he is ready,he will give me a call. Then a minute later,the mail lady putting the letters in the people's mailbox drove by. Before she drove off,I introduced myself to her and told her that if she knows anyone who is interested in buying or selling that they should please give me a call. She said that she is interested in buying herself in the same neighborhood where I was distributing my business cards and doorhangers. So she said that she will definitely give me a call. Then like ten minutes later,I met a man who is interested in buying a fixer upper in Washington,DC for up to $200,000. We had a good talk for almost thirty minutes. He was telling me about himself,his neighborhoods and the neighborhood. He even gave me his card to call him as soon as I have found him some properties.

And when I got home,I got a e-mail from someone saying that she is trying to spend up to $180,000 for a fixer upper in Washington,DC. So it was not a bad day for door knocking. Spring is here meaning more home buyers and sellers are coming who wants to play buy or sell-Yuppie!

 It takes alot of tenacity and perserverance to knock on doors kudos to you on that. I never even liked cold calling- don't think I would last too long cold knocking.

Tis door knockin season in Texas too.  Gotta do it before the weather gets too hot.  It is  a good way to get to know the folks in your farm area. I like weekend days in the afternoon.  You catch lots of folks out doing yard work, and folks just love to talk around here.

Lanre: Exercise and business? What a great combination! I will begin once the rain stops. One hundred cards/fliers or 3 miles. Which every comes first. Need to put the winter behind me, including the pounds.

Great job Lanre.  When I first got into the business, knocking on doors and door hangers got me a little business.  Something I will have to revisit if the weather ever works with me here in New Hampshire!
