Relationships Rule in Real Estate

Please take a look at these TIPS for Networking and building relationships!
Relationships are important in most sales professions, but even more so in real estate. Never pass up an opportunity to network and get to know the other agents.  Whether this is through your local Realtor association activities, office events, or individual one-on-one contact that you initiate, it is essential.  When you are involved in a real estate transaction there is nearly always someone representing the other party, and if that agent is someone you know, chances are the transaction will go smoother. You got to get along if you want them to go along!
The complexity of modern real estate transactions means that there may be several other professionals involved as well.  Appraisers, home inspectors, lenders, plumbers, electricians, attorneys and many more, could all become essential to your buyer or seller achieving their goals.
Make sure you keep a win-win attitude with all whenever possible!
ACTION
Grow your professional relationships  – start with your own office and work outward.  At least once a week, meet a colleague for coffee, attend an office meeting or function, go to a Realtor networking event.  Solidify the relationship with a follow up personal note (with a little gift?)  letting the person know how much you enjoyed your time with them and that you hope to work with them in the future.

Develop a Taste for Technology

tech gadgetsEven new agents can find themselves with not enough time on their hands to do everything that needs to be done. In their case it isn’t because they have so many clients, it’s because they are doing everything themselves, step by step. This is where technology comes in and can actually become your unpaid assistant – although there may be some cost involved. For Realtors, earning the ePro designation is a great way to get you up to speed. But, everyone can learn if they start slowly with the basics, get comfortable with one tool at a time and keep plugging away. You might want to start with your cell phone, does it do what you need it to do? Do you have a laptop or ipad? Are you using it to its fullest potential? What software might work for you? It can be confusing at first, but we can help. For tips and advice on technology check out our technology scorecards or contact us!

ACTION
Review your tech habits and commit to becoming tech savvy – it really is essential and now is the time to do it. Make a list of the technology that you are currently using, including social media. Objectively, rate yourself on your expertise in each area. Make a plan on where to start upgrading your hardware, software and user knowledge. Tackle one item at a time and get tech savvy!

Personally, facebook has been a business surprise for me!Kate Lanagan MacGregor Agent Rising Realtor Resource
I am surprised by the number of likes I get on some personal posts. 
When I broke my back in a car accident, it was the fastest,
most effective way to get the word out that I was okay,
and the response I got from my professional contacts was
simply astounding!  Facebook for me has been a way to
show the human side of me to my professional contacts.
Don’t underestimate it’s power!
