Running a business "is not just a career-choice, it's a passion." A real estate agent could learn a lot about running a business by modeling after the Farmer's Market. Their branding at Farmer's Market Grapevine is: "WE COMMIT TO BRINGING YOU THE BEST."
Any type of business depends on their local market. Anything else is gravy! The art of sales and marketing your business begins and ends with integrity. Farmer's Market Grapevine makes a commitment. "Our goal is to serve you and your family."
What can other business owners, real estate agents learn from the Farmer's Market Grapevine?
- Priced Right
- Product Knowledge (compliments of Michael Jacobs)
- Lighting is Just Right
- Organized (day and night)
- Always Professional
- Friendly Staff
- Serves the Community
- Business based on Repeats and Referrals
Parallels Between the Farmer's Market & a Real Estate Business Owner
Wind, rain, sunny, sleet, foggy, or snow - always be ready when business comes your way and give clear instructions about when and how you do business. No matter who your customers or clients are, always be professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and know what prospective buyers want by asking appropriate questions about their needs. Talking about you is not acceptable, unless they ask questions about the type of services you provide. Be wise. Always keep it business oriented. Never a slippery slope. Expect that people within the Community will always shop locally - unless they can't get their business from you.
"Price is what you pay.
Value is what you get."
