that's a great question for Marte Cliff she's the best.... send her an email or call her ....she actually wrote a bio for me for a brochure....I didn't feel like doing it, so Marte did it.... and I DO know how to write... so, I think she'd be just what you need.

1. Buffini & Company offers many different personal note and letter templates.

2. Listings I'd say #1 source is repeat and referral biz from your CRM.

3. Buyers I'd say #1 source is having listings.

Fresh ideas.

Those begin with understanding your USP.

Or perhaps the benefits of working with you.

Or the privilege created through your association.

Or perhaps the empowerment you provide through your special knowledge of your market place.

(the above is a bit of a guide)

What do you have to offer that will compel the subject to respond in the manner you wish? 

All of this surrounds the creation of a compelling letter. If you resort to pulling from a library of letter templates, inspiration is the first casualty.

EVERYONE is mailing to home owners. A strategy that goes beyond a good letter will prove essential.

When you eventually chat with your letter writer, having the answer to these questions will prove helpful.
