You Can't Buy It

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I have found that good business like anything else that matters, can not be bought. Shortcuts are just games in my view. You can buy leads or you can work hard to get your own and then follow up until you you see progress or are told to go away. I always err on the side of marching right along. Better to be busy working hard than trying to find a secret no one has.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

there are no new secrets in real estate....  the best "secrets" that everyone should investigate and then run with are "old school" methods.... Sheila Anderson

Hello Sheila - there will always be a portion of any population that is looking for the "magic solution" if only they could look deep inside and "discover" it.

The thing with new methods, is they usually attract the masses like the brightest new toy.  I agree with Barbara Todaro, old tried and true, seems most reliable when it comes to marketing.

There is no magic button for getting leads.

Buying them is a one time thing.  But you spend a lot to get them

Morning again Sheila.

Thinking back I don't believe I've ever bought any leads.  Door to door and mailings were my way to secure listings.

There is new technology that fuels what we do....and contimues to take time off the things that took longer and took us away from the business of getting business.

Hi Sally. If technology helps that's good but there are no shortcuts to securing business.   Sheila

IMHO: One certainly never needs to buy leads.  People are everywhere.  Those ARE the leads.  It's a matter of getting out where the people are, isn't it Sheila?
