Industry Team Articles » Joint Databasing Between the Lender and Realtor®

When a real estate agent gives a lender business, I believe that the lender is obligated to do more than close the loan. Building long-term relationships by utilizing the information to build name-recognition with that closed client, their friends, and their family are paramount to building a database! This classic host/parasite relationship always works because both parties receive benefits.

Top Agent Articles » Kill the Competition's Farm

Let’s set the scene – you really want the major share of listings in the neighborhood close to your office, and you want those listings at an average sales price 40% higher than your average closed sales price.

Top Agent Articles » Killing Clients with Kindness and Value

Sometimes, we need to "kill" our clients with kindness and offer value. I know it goes against everything in our nature to turn the other cheek when they are being mean.

Top Agent Articles » Let’s Admit It’s Bad and Help Our Agents through It

Our agents are facing dropping prices, buyers without the hope of future appreciation, and FICO scores that aren’t up to par.  Sellers are watching the equity that they have already spent disappear.  Banks are pushing the short sale envelope until it rips.  Shadow inventory with Alt A option arm re-adjustments are now coming to join the party.  The government is spending more than the printing press can handle, debasing a currency that the lenders expect to get back 30 years from now.  Are they going to continue to lend at 6%?  You have not seen anything yet!  So, get ready to change the way you do business…or move over.

Top Agent Articles » Leveraging Mundane Activities

When I coach, we set up consistent, inexpensive lead generation activities for sellers. Some require a complete overhaul, and some require only small tweaks. Do you look for the small tweaks?
