LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN...

By
Real Estate Agent with North Atlanta Group

Slow Down and listen to your Buyer:

The one thing that most agents today do not do is listen, listen, listen.  Your Buyer will tell you what they want, where they want it, and when.  Sometimes if you just ask the simple question, "Tell me what you are looking for and maybe I can help point you in the right direction."  Now, what you have done is give your buyer a sense of ownership in the process and you are showing that your are looking out for their best interest.  Now you are on there side, as it always should be.  As Jerry Maguire would say, "Help me help you!"

Hey Jeff, and Welcome to the Rain!

Kevin Sandridge, here. I'm honored to be the first to post a comment on your blog!

I joined the Active Rain community not too long ago myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already.


A Bit About Active Rain

I'm very excited about this community - basically because folks seem so willing to help out, provide industry insight, and share their good news and experiences!

When I started out on Active Rain, I felt a little overwhelmed.  I hope the following points and suggested sites will help bring you into the mix!  Just my way of saying that I'm glad you're here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One:  Be sure to include a good amount of information on your profile page.  Check out the profiles on other Realtor's sites here on Active Rain who are listed as "Featured" or "Tops" in their area (look for high point totals).  You'll find that this will seriously boost your presence on ActiveRain - via the added points. 

Two: I urge you to keep blogging on this site!  You will be AMAZED at the awesome feedback you receive very soon after they hit the network!  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs that provide me with ideas about what I'd like to comment on - both industry wise and just for fun!  Check it out I am more than willing to step you through the site and to help you get a few more blog posts generated if you wish - as a way of adding some value and paying forward some good networking vibes!  :)

Three: Be sure to add in a good number of posts about what you think and consider pertinent regarding your area of expertise!  You'll notice that many if not all of the Featured posting bloggers here on AR do this.

Lastly, I do quite a lot of work via social networks, email campaigns, and relationship building.  If I can ever be of any assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

Here are a few great sites to visit (some of my favorites).  If you like the information they provide, be sure to let them know I sent you!

Looking forward to what you'll share with us here on Active Rain!  :)

Blessings,

Kevin Sandridge
