Top Producer contest: How do you identify opportunities from within your sphere?
Active Rain’s members are some of the savviest and most dialed in real estate professionals in the country, and hundreds of technologists, product developers and marketing professionals from across the industry visit Active Rain each day to get ideas on how to better serve their agent and broker clients.
In our latest challenge, we’ve teamed up with Top Producer® to see how leading agents leverage their sphere contacts (and CRMs) to best identify the people who are ready to buy or sell.
Tell us: What is your BEST tactic for determining if a member of your sphere (or a CRM contact) is getting ready to transact?
For example, do you:
Reach out after a former client has owned their home for 7 years (the average time-in-home in your market)?
Make calls daily to five contacts, to ensure you hit every contact every six months?
Hand mail birthday or anniversary cards to people you haven’t spoken to in a while?
Invite past clients to play golf or out to coffee, so you can chat with them one-on-one?
You’re the experts — and we’d love to hear all the methods you use to mine your database for repeat and referral opportunities! Whether it’s getting back in touch with past buyers and sellers or re-engaging stale leads, we’re eager to see how you leverage your database to stay on top.
Earn up to 10,000 points and get featured in a webinar!
We know that giving away your best ideas can be hard, so we’re sweetening the deal with these awesome rewards:
