3 Ideas for Generating Leads While Helping Your Community

At Big Block Realty, we understand that we’re part of a thriving community. We believe that to truly be a part of it, we need to be involved with it.

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business is about more than just making sales. It’s about getting out in our community and getting to know people.

Lead generation can be a challenge for even the most seasoned of real estate agents. There’s a lot of ways to do it, and you’ve no doubt done them all if you’ve been in the business for very long.

But there are ways to meet potential new clients without cold calling and sending emails. A great way to meet people is to get out in your community and get involved. You can network and make new friends, and maybe even do some good for your community while you’re at it.

Here are a few ideas.

1.) Food Drives- These are all over during the build up to the holidays. You can get involved with one, or you can sponsor one yourself. Get the word out in the office and among your friends.

Get it out there on social media. Invite people to get everyone they know involved.

2.) Habitat For Humanity- They always need volunteers. Maybe you’ve picked up a bit of know how during your years on the job they may benefit from.

You might even learn something useful for your real estate career, and very little builds relationships better than building something together.

3.) Animal Shelter- Most of us love animals, anyway. You can bet your local shelters need help with either manpower or donations. See what you can do for your local shelters.

You can always sponsor a drive to get them the materials they need, like food, blankets, towels, etc.

These are just three simple ideas for engaging with your community. Remember, community is what real estate is all about. Get out there and help yours and find people the homes they need.

At Big Block Realty, we want each and every one of agents to have the helpful tools that will increase their success. Want to begin a rewarding career with an integrity driven, 100% commission real estate brokerage?

Then Big Block Realty might be the place for you!

3 Tips for Crafting Great Listing Presentations

At Big Block Realty, we want to train our agents to be top performers for their clients and for themselves. Outstanding service is our top priority.

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business is about more than just making sales. It’s about earning our client’s trust.

So a homeowner has contacted you and expressed interest in possibly listing their home with you. That’s great, right? Music to your ears? Now it’s time to start thinking about a listing presentation.

Listing presentations are a crucial part of winning the listing. You have to convince the homeowner you’re capable of getting the job done. It’s about building a relationship and earning trust.

And you can’t do that with a canned listing presentation. You need to reach the homeowner and show them you can meet their individual needs. Here a few tips for crafting a great listing presentation.

1.) Personalize It-

Like we already said, your listing presentation needs to be customer specific. Learn about the homeowners by talking and listening to them and address their needs in your presentation.

Show them how you’ve sold similar homes in the past. Let them see you’ve been successful selling a home like theirs.

Speak about houses that have recently sold nearby to let them know you’ve done your homework about the local market.

2.) Make It Professional-

Don’t make a boring PowerPoint and call it done. You can do better than that. And with about a zillion real estate agents out there, you really have to do better than that.

There’s all kinds of great software available for you to make a listing presentation with some pop to it. If you don’t know how to do this stuff, or are intimidated by the idea, you need to get over it.

Figure it out, or find someone who can teach you how to get the job done with some modern style. You want to show your potential client you have some style and confidence.

3.) Highlight Your Skills-

Have you got a good record for selling homes quickly? Do you have a considerable network of fellow agents to help find buyers? What is it about you that makes you stand out?

Be sure to let your potential clients know what they’re getting if they decide to list with you. If you’re really good at your job, let them know it.

At Big Block Realty, we want each and every one of agents to have the helpful tools that will increase their success.

3 Tips for Effective Online Lead Generation

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Learning how to successfully generate and manage leads is vital for real estate professionals.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is all about learning everything you can to help new clients and build relationships.

We all know how important leads are. Without them you’re dead in the water.

Lead Generation on Black-Golden Watch Face.

Today we have all kinds of great ways for generating leads.

Internet marketing and social media have opened up a whole new world for agents looking for potential clients.

But there are some common mistakes in online lead generation many agents make. Here some tips for generating leads online.

1.) Understand Your Social Media-

So you’ve set up a Facebook account and decided to Tweet. That’s great. Real estate agents all over the country are doing the same.

But if you aren’t posting with any kind of consistency and you don’t bother to learn what’s working and what’s not, it’s all for naught.

If your content is awesome but you only bother posting every six weeks, it’s pointless. Set up a posting schedule and stick to it.

Use analytics to see what’s working and where.

Figure out where your followers are engaging with you the most and go to work there.

Dedicate your time to reaching out there and limit or reduce the time you’re spending on other avenues.

2.) Segment Your Emails-

Depending on where your leads are in the sales process, they don’t need to receive the same email.

People who just bought a house don’t need to hear about your new listings.

Sending people the wrong email tells them you’re not really interested in the details and will get your email trashed.

Don’t waste their time.

3.) Love All Your Leads-

Never discount a lead. You never know what’s going to happen in the future.

Stay in their mind with effective nurturing communication.

Don’t become a bother, but try to stay fresh enough that they think of you first if their circumstances change or they need to recommend an agent to a friend or family member.

Big Block Realty wants its agents to learn to use the helpful tools that will increase their success.

Consider Big Block Realty if you would like an opportunity for a career with a 100% commission real estate brokerage!

Real estate allows you to use your networking skills like no other career out there.

If you’d like to discover more about Big Block Realty, we would love a chance to get to know you.

Habits of Leading Real Estate Agents: Skills for Success from 100% Commission Brokerage

ID-10022715All people are unique and all real estate professionals are unique as well.

Here at Big Block Realty, we believe that with the right tools, skills and attitude, you can be successful in the real estate industry. Big Block Realty wants all our California real estate agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

This is why we want to provide our agents and potential agents with as many tools, tips and advice as we can give them as they strike out in their new careers as real estate professionals.

Building a reputation for a 100% commission real estate business is about more than just making sales. It’s about building great relationships based on trust and hard work. Soak up as much knowledge as you can to make your career in real estate a successful one!

There are different types of people and there are different types of real estate agents. Some are outgoing and lively. Others are more serious and reserved. No matter what type of person you are and no matter what type of real estate agent you are, there are some traits that spell success for a real estate career.

If you can find a way to incorporate these traits, you will have more success in your real estate career.

– Successful Real Estate Professionals Don’t Procrastinate 

You may have heard the adage “why put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” This definitely applies to real estate pros who have achieved success. Returning calls and emails right away, making contacts and following up is part of this.

– Great Real Estate Agents Know How to Communicate 

Not only do great real estate agents know what to say, they also know how to say it. This means being aware of how clients like to communicate and adapting communication methods to fit client wishes.

It’s about learning a client’s language and then speaking that language to achieve mutual understanding.

– Having Success in Real Estate Career Means Being Available 

The day of a real estate professional isn’t usually 9 to 5 Monday through Friday. Clients have questions about listings and want to see properties at all hours of the day.

To be successful in real estate, you must make yourself available to clients on their schedules. Not being available can mean the difference between keeping a client and losing him or her to another agent who was available.

– Successful Real Estate Professionals Take Time to Explain 

When a home buyer or seller first approaches the real estate process, he or she can have a lot of unanswered questions. A good real estate agent will take the time to answer these questions and explain everything that home buyers and sellers need to know.

Research shows that the most satisfied sellers name regular communication to be their top priority.

– Awesome Real Estate Agents Know how to get Leads 

Great agents know the importance of getting leads in whatever forms they can. Instead of relying on just traditional methods, they put themselves out there and seek leads from all different avenues.

Successful real estate agents know what works and what doesn’t. They know that different types of leads must be targeted in different ways. They understand that having a social presence is an important part of their career’s long-term success.

In Conclusion – 

Real estate is about providing customer service. Good customer service is about having knowledge and expertise, but it’s also about being authentic. To have success in real estate, one must have passion and be authentic. Agents who have the greatest success are the ones who treat each client like he or she is the only client.

Here at Big Block Realty, we want our agents to experience the greatest possible success. As California’s best 100% commission real estate brokerage, we offer our agents the opportunity to keep their entire commissions while still enjoying all the perks of working with an industry leader such as Big Block.

Get creative with your pics and make sure each one is inviting and eye catching.

An agent can use Pinterest to introduce visitors to themselves and their team. Pin some pics of your people with a short biography. Highlight your teams’ experience and make sure your visitors know your team is experienced and knowledgable.

Make your company synonymous with expertise by providing useful information on the market and tips to sell a house. You can even provide useful ideas and instruction on how people can better maintain their homes and properties. Anything that makes you look like an expert is helpful.
