Do you sell real estate in or around a small town?
If so, would you be willing to talk with me about it?
I'm thinking of developing a new website with resources/advice for agents who work in small towns, and I'd like to update my knowledge on the subject.
My agency was in a small town (approximately 1,700 population) and we served residents in the surrounding area for a radius of up to 40 miles. When we opened our doors we were the 6th agency in town. Soon there was a 7th, and later an 8th. And still, we had plenty of competition from agents in nearby towns.
When I sold the agency 9 years later (just before the 2005 boom, darn it), our agency was responsible for more than 50% of the business transacted on our end of the County. By that time, all but 2 of the others had closed their doors.
I know how we did it. Now I'd like to know how much things have changed in small towns since then.
Will you help?
If so, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to talk with you - at your convenience, of course.
