3 Great Sources for Lead Generation

Like with any profession, being a real estate agent has its own unique challenges. Perhaps the most frustrating part of the job is lead generation. It’s a vital networking tool that no agent can survive without. But sometimes, it’s easy to feel like the well has gone dry, you’ve left no stone unturned, and you can’t squeeze blood from a turnip.

Pick any euphemism. They all apply. But there’s always new frontiers to explore for lead generation. You may just have to think outside the box.

Here are a few tips.

1.) For Sale By Owner-

Most people who try to sell their own property will quickly discover it’s not as easy as they thought it was going to be. Sure, everyone thinks their house is awesome and it will sell in no time.

But months later when the house has gone absolutely nowhere and they’ve dropped the asking price 20,000 dollars, they may feel different about looking for a professional like you to get the job done.

Look for houses for sale by owner that have sat stagnant for a stretch and offer your services. Start by offering a free consultation and see where it goes.

2.) Engage People Through Interest Groups-

Do you ride a Harley Davidson? Are you into tennis? Are a rock climber, an underwater basket weaver, or a rodeo enthusiast? If so, you have a built in community of people you can look to for good leads.

It’s a safe bet that whatever kind of hobbies you enjoy, there’s other folks who are, too. Get involved with Facebook groups and become part of the scene. Sure, Facebook is great for online marketing, but it’s not bad for meeting real people, too. Reach out and make friends.

Your careers are sure to come up in conversation. When your new friends hear one of their old friends say they need an agent, you may get the referral.

Foster those relationships and enjoy generating leads in the company of your new pals in the chess club, the Faberge Egg collectors society, and the civil war reenactors group.

3.) Real Estate Postcards-

Postcards are the perfect low-tech, low-cost and proven way to reach out for leads. Send them to past clients to keep your name in their head. Send them to targeted demographics. They’re small, to the point, don’t have to be opened, and don’t take much time for the recipient to consume.

They’re cheap and effective, so don’t turn your nose up because they’re not ultra modern.

Remember, there’s always somewhere you can dig up leads. You just have to be creative.

3 Tips for Creating the Perfect Resume

Real estate agents need good resumes because they want to set themselves apart from their peers and work with the best brokerage they can find. Sure, an agent is an independent contractor, but don’t think you can just waltz into a job. The best brokerages out there still hire their people the old fashioned way: taking applications, reading resumes, and conducting job interviews. A good resume means you’ll get considered by the best, which means you’ll get access to the best tools and training in the business. That’s something every agent ultimately wants. Here are some resume tips.

1.) Show Your Worth-

Let your resume reflect that you’ve done well for yourself (and your broker), in the business before. You’ve made a name for yourself by satisfying clients, earning money for your past associates, and are ready to continue your career with new people. If you show a broker you understand how to network, you’re good at what you do, and will be an asset by highlighting your accomplishments, they’re going to bring you on board.

2.) Keep It Simple-

Your resume isn’t the place for your creativity to shine. Nor is it a place to blather about every personal aspect of your life. The real estate industry is not a field where fancy fonts, colors, and striking paper choices are appreciated. Stick to basics with your resume. It’s not the time to be flashy. You should also avoid including personal information in your resume. It’s not the place to share your life story, your personal preferences, or your sense of humor. Keep it professional by keeping it simple.

3.) Keep It Current And Relevant-

You don’t need to tell anyone about your summer jobs from high school. You also don’t need to include information about companies you worked for twenty years ago. Show what you’ve accomplished recently and don’t make your resume reflect your life story. Make every word count. Don’t focus on yourself, just what you’ve accomplished and what you have to offer potential employers.

Now go fine tune your resume and get that job you want.
