Make your narratives, your videos conversational and like you are talking to only one person in the room... with the target buyer coming away knowing you see them, that you reach out and get it. You see them in the audience and let them know you are going to save them money, time and frustration.

Lauren there are so many things that work for agents.  For us we learned early on to treat our sphere of A list clients like gold and stay in touch with them consistenly and that's what has worked best for us. They also know  that we're honest and they trust us.  Each transaction is about the clients best interests and not ours - we make  that well known.

I'm afraid I did not have ''best results'' from marketing via social medias even I believe I'm quite active there. Best marketing is always via people you already know or your local communities.
