Tom Braatz. What it takes to be a Re/Max Realty agent?

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker



There used to be a day that one would show up at their desk each week and between the MLS books and the desk phone you made things happen.  You stepped out of the box, you defined and invented yourself, you worked hard, and if you were successful you deserved to get paid. Well, to tell you the truth it has not changed much. You show up for the game prepared physically and mentally. You block out all the bad energy and objects that you know are not productive and never will be and you work your game plan.

Sure times have changed. We have the Internet and if we are wise we have developed a system of viral marketing that enhances our business something fierce. We have enhanced our telephone techniques second to now, and when we cold call ( yes, I cold call everyday. Ask anyone that knows me ) we do it with conviction and passion. We strive for the appointment. Our follow up system has to be just as important. I myself use my phone, send out cards,, and more.

My mailings for each listing are like clock work followed up one-two weeks later with a phone call, I use my Craigslist, Backpage, Hotpads,Postlets,Oodle,Yahoo,Zillow,Trulia,Pinterest,and some additional ones as well in the forms of blogs, (some specific), I use ,

WWW.ACTIVERAIN.COM/TOMMYBRAATZ ,  , ,  ,  ,  ,  , , ( lots more blogs) WWW.TWITTER.COM/TOMBRAATZ , Google + page , WWW.LINKEDIN.COM/IN/TOMBRAATZ ,WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/TOMBRAATZ  , and about 20 other avenues on the web that are effectively; highly effectively.

I have a game plan, even when I am sick I am still able to implement some systems. The most important thing that needs to be adopted in Real Estate is a great attitude and gratitude. If you are also a procrastinator that certainly isn't going to help. The good thing is in our group we are all willing to      help each other; all someone needs to do is ask for help or how to do something. You still have the same general message. You have a game plan, you don't procrastinate, you have your systems in place, and the have a good attitude and you have gratitude. Gratitude for being able to work, gratitude for happiness, and gratitude to be alive. So go out and get some listings. They are yours; you just need to work at it.



Have a productive day and I will see you at closing!
