Selling Timetable March 2nd, 2017 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

This list can be used in a variety of ways. You can include it (all or a portion) in the following ways:

  1. Your listing presentation to demonstrate the work involved in selling a home.
  2. Your seller’s section of your website.
  3. Your in-office client file to keep you and any team members on track

 

I’m sure you can think of other ways to use it, too; in fact, there are probably items that you can add/delete.

Bottom line: checklists keep you and your team on track.  When you provide excellent client service and you follow your checklists each time, what’ll you get?  EXCELLENT CLIENT SERVICE!
