Successful listing is a combination of careful research, innovative
marketing, and cultivated sensitivity to the personalities and concerns
of prospective clients. By helping to improve the listing skills of
your sales associates, you help ensure prosperity for them and for your
For-sale-by-owner homes - FSBOs for short - are a fertile prospecting
source for most real estate salespeople. According to the National Association
of REALTORS 2003 Survey of Home Buyers and Sellers, 14 percent of all
homes sold in 2003 were sold by FSBOs. Help your salespeople tap into
this potential source of business.
Referrals can be a great source of business, but they are far
from an easy home run. Use this tool kit - including a ready-to-go agenda,
activities, and talking points - to help expand your referrals and to
avoid unpleasant surprises from after-the-fact referrals when you work
with relocation clients.
Few professionals need time management skills more than real
estate salespeople. Your time is unstructured, you have few set office
hours, and you are constantly being interrupted by phone calls from
clients (you hope). Good time management can help you be more productive,
earn more, and keep your sanity.
Although a little stress may help you feel energized, long-term
intense stress can increase the risk of heart disease, cause back pain,
and lead to clinical depression. Health care expenditures are nearly
50 percent greater for workers who report high levels of stress, and
according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, workers who must take time
off work due to stress, anxiety, or a related disorder will be off the
job for about 20 days.
