Build a Team for Your Real Estate Business

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

Become a real estate agent and you’ll quickly find you need help to keep your business running smoothly and efficiently. Sure, you can do it all at first, mainly because you don’t have a choice, but eventually your business is going to get too big for you to handle all by your lonesome.

You’ll get rundown by the grunt work, the stress, and shuffling papers and miss opportunities to do your real job.

When you find yourself overwhelmed with paperwork and spending way too many hours in the office, it’s time to find someone to help out. A general assistant can help with all of your more mundane tasks, even the proverbial dry cleaning.

They don’t necessarily need to be licensed or have any real estate experience, just be able to get tasks done and follow directions. An extra set of hands will help you stay on what’s important, like finding new clients.

The help you hire doesn’t have to fit any kind of preconceived mold. You just need the people on hand to help you get the job done and grow your business. Maybe you have a single full time assistant and a couple of part timers. Or a gaggle of qualified part timers. It doesn’t matter. Find the people who are able to help you with what you need.

Do you need help with your book-keeping? Hire an accounting or a math major. Tired of running all over town getting signatures? Hire a runner with their own car. There’s no one way to build your team. Just do what works for you.

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 marketing and sales skills like no other career out there.

3 Tips for Building Your New Real Estate Business

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

Learning how to successfully market your listings 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 get your clients the results they need.

Feeling a little panicked is pretty normal for a new real estate agent. Especially during that first month when it’s time to start reaching out and building your client base.

But take heart in the fact that thousands have successfully come before you and understand perfectly well how you feel.

So just put on your big shoes and buckle up. You’re going to be fine. Here’s a few tips for newbies on how to get started.

1.) Start With People You Know-

Ask folks you know if it would be ok to give them updates on the market. Ask them how they prefer you contact them and stick to that method (phone calls, email newsletters, snail mail, etc).

Let friends and family know you’re in the business and are happy to help them if they need you. They’re probably more than happy to send you referrals, too.

2.) Find A Mentor-

Find a veteran agent and offer to help out with open houses. That will give you an opportunity to watch someone who knows what they’re doing. Take notes and emulate them.

Partner up with another salesperson and learn what you can until you’re ready to fly solo. When your broker or association has training opportunities, take them. Learn what you can in the classroom.

3.) Tap Into Past Experience-

Real estate agents can tap into all kinds of past experiences and professions to get an edge on the job.

Have you ever worked on a house? Knocked down a wall or built an addition? Done electrical or plumbing? Have you ever had a summer job landscaping?

If you have experience in anything that helps you provide some insight to a client, use it. You’re there to help.

You don’t have to have a degree in horticulture to offer a bit of advice on the yard or garden if you know what you’re talking about.

4 Tips for Creating Effective Facebook Ads for Real Estate Agents

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

Finding the right people to help you with your business is vital for real estate professionals.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is all about carefully building a team that ensures your success.

Organic reach is only getting harder, so Facebook ads are now the best way to target your market and get your content in in front of your audience.

This is just as true real estate agents as it is for anyone else. Here are a few tips for making Facebook ads that generate better leads.

1.) Figure Out Your Goals First-

Do you want to get likes? Do you want to drive traffic to your website? Your ad can’t do it all (most of the time, anyway), so determine your goal and craft your ad to reach them.

To get those likes, make your ad useful or entertaining. To get visitors to visit your website, link to it, and give them a reason to go there.

2.) Post Great Images-

Facebook is image driven, so it’s perfect for real estate agents. People in the market for a new home start on the internet looking at pics of houses, inside and out. So take advantage.

Upload some high quality photos of a listing. Invest in a good camera and learn how to use it, or find someone to do it for you.

3.) Boost A Post-

Got a past post that really connected with your followers and had a lot of views? Try boosting it. You won’t have to spend time making a new ad. If your post was well received before, it will probably perform well again.

Boosting is promoting a post by getting it more views. You can boost to your current followers, your followers and their friends, or a defined audience based on their geographic location.

4.) Provide Some Sort Of Call To Action-

Be sure you give your followers something to do, be it visit your website, participate in a poll, or comment. Get them involved beyond simply viewing your content.

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.

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.
