I Got An Important Phone Call

The other day I got a phone call from one of the early
pioneers of real estate training.

I was rather excited when I listened to the message.
You see 20 years ago when I started to sell real estate,
he was the very first trainer that I listed to.

As a matter of fact I wore out two sets of tapes and had
to get a third.

So you can understand why my ears perked up when he was
now calling me... Asking me to get together to discuss
an idea.

The trainer that called me wants to meet with me today and
of  course I agreed... He is Jerry Bresser of the List More
Sell More training system.

The interesting thing about training tapes/cds/mp3s is
that when you listen to them often, you tend to retain the
information and can therefore use it when called upon.

I was golfing with friends a while back and one of the guys
in the group was grinding me on the topic of listening to
training systems, saying that I was for training because I
am in that industry.

I made an interesting point when I asked another of the
group how his second language skills were when he was
not speaking in his Italian tongue very often.

His answer was immediate... Well you start to forget
things... This is something that we can all relate to...Right!

Getting leads is one thing and I have mastered this area
of the business and turned it into a a Virtual Prospecting
System. However you still need to know what to say when you
acquire a lead.

The system comes with the Internet tools, the thinking behind
the tools and the scripts that enable you to covert your leads
and to motivate your buyers and sellers to take action.

In many ways things have not changed much in the past 20
years. You still have to prospect, you still need to practice
your scripts and dialogs.

The only thing that has changed is the way we prospect and
where you have to go to get the leads.

NAR has found that 96% of all people now start their home and
Real Estate Professional search on the Internet and 75% of these people pick
the first agent that they meet.

They also show that 88% of agents are still using old school
methods to "try" to get their business.

You see the opportunity here... Don't you?

To your online success,

past, Jerry Bresser has to say.

Real Estate Agents – Day Timers and Prospecting

This is the time of year to start working on your business plan.

I have laid out a guideline for my team to follow and I believe if they work on these simple steps, success is all but guaranteed.

The first step is to block out your calender, with your prospecting being your most important appointment of the day. Use a pencil (in case of changes) and block out all the times that are going to complete your day and do this well in advance of the day you are going to work on the task at hand.

Many of you will say that your family is more important; it is acceptable to build your calender based on this approach. However, remember that airlines will tell you to put your oxygen mask on yourself first in order to be able to help the people beside you.

Prospecting is the oxygen you will need to be successful in real estate sales as well s any other selling profession, if you want to help your family - look after your business and your business will look after you.

You should also try to do some of your prospecting at the office as opposed to calling at home. If you have a hard time disciplining yourself to make the calls that are required to reach your goals it is probably because the couch is winning out over the phone.

Follow these simple rules you will be on top of your game and sales and referrals will follow. More importantly if you can not master the phone or stopping in to visit buyers and sellers, you might want to consider another career other then real estate sales.

The time that you block out for prospecting or what I would like to re phrase is calling your list, mailing them personal notes and dropping by to visit people that can send you referrals should be done as routinely as taking a shower.

Make just five contacts a day in each of these three suggested areas and you will be successful. If you are new to the business then you should be spending most of your day looking for business, because the people that you are trying to serve are not going to come looking for you.
