PROPERTY INDUSTRY – BUSINESS TIP

A BUSINESS TIP FOR ESTATE AGENTS THIS WEEK –

This weeks tip was to look again at the applicant list in each office and ensure that anyone living in the area of any of our own offices is registered as ‘Gold’ and has been offered a marketing appraisal.

We refer to theses as our Gold applicants and they stay on our electronic lists for years if necessary. There is no cost to this and we can keep them informed of what is happening in the market, at least they see what is selling in their area, occasionally they see something to tempt them and they get a very regular reminder that we are the main agent to talk to long term.

If the applicant registers in one office but lives in the area of another we need to ensure that the ‘home’ office gets details as well as the one in the area where they are looking. Obviously this also works for National Homes Network referrals but at the very least we are cross-selling around our own business.

JUST A THOUGHT…

Just a thought…

What I have discovered this week from my business dealings is that there are alot of absolutely brilliant business people around, running absolutely brilliant small businesses.

I’ve been impressed by the way they have taken action and progressed from the original germination of their new business idea.

There is much we can learn from these people when we come into contact with them in our daily business lives – how they work, how they do business, how they talk, what they say, how they say it, and what actions they take.

So, keep your eyes and ears open – we might just learn something!  🙂
