Cape Coral real estate agent business planning

Cape Coral real estate agents: As we near the end of 2010 we need to focus on our real estate plans and goals for 2011. If you don't have a plan yet now is the time to create one. If you are interested in obtaining any of the real estate planning documents that I share with my agents please contact me for your free copy.

The biggest task for real estate agents, or any other sales professional, is to prospect for new business. Even when you are busy it is imperative to continue prospecting to keep the momentum going. Starting over is always tougher than staying in that momentum. Real estate sales do not have to be so turbulent. You can make and follow a plan for success.

Watch my short video below for tips and tricks to creating your best year in real estate yet!

Finding your niche market

Ask yourself what type of consumers are you best suited to work with? Is working with first time home buyers your passion?

You may decide that a particular area is your niche, so your next step is to be an authority on that geographical area, find any and all information pertaining to that area so you are ready and able to pass on your expertise to your customers.

Social media

Social media has revolutionized the way people communicate; professionally, personally, and even the way we advertise our services. The trick to using social media sites like facebook is to utilize them in the most advantageous way to you.

The key is to make meaningful contact with other industry professionals, potential clients and building authentic relationships with them. By being real and completely transparent people are more likely to use your services over another’s or refer their friends and family to you. Your personal Facebook page should have great balance of personal and professional information, save the advertisements for your fan page. If you are always trying to solicit business people stop listening to what you have to say, or possibly blocking the relationship completely. Always use your common sense when posting, and be sure to keep it professional.




Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

Your sphere of influence

A sphere of influence (SOI) is the practice of attracting business from people you already know. Your sphere contains personal or professional contacts, people who you are in regular contact with.

Make a list of people to put into your sphere database. Your friends and family is a good starting point but don’t leave out your hair dresser, pest control person, mail carrier, dog groomer, or any other person that provides a regular service to you.

You want these contacts to know that you are in the real estate business, but it is so important not to prepare a sales pitch every time you meet with them. Make regular contact with them without it being real estate (or other business) related.

Send out Christmas cards, birthday /anniversary cards, and ask them to lunch, contact with these people should be on a personal level. There is no need to constantly remind your contacts of what business you are in, that is if you want to keep them as friends.

Eventually when these people need real estate services they will think of you. If it is advice they seek give it to them, without expectations, they may not use your services this time around but may use you in the future, or refer someone they know to you. Every name on your SOI list has the potential to make you thousands, so treat it and the people on it with the utmost care.

Cape Coral real estate career advice

It is a little scary being thrown to the wolves, by wolves I mean the real estate business. School prepares you for the state exam, not for the actual day to day business. So utilizing advice from other professionals is critical to the success of your business. Facebook is a great way to catch up with old friends but it is even better to network with other agents, market you business and promote yourself to potential customers.

Susan recently posted on facebook “what advice seasoned agents have for newbie’s?” We received some really great advice and information to share. Facebook is a great resource for any professional in need of peer assistance, or if you would just like to share a story of a recent transaction, it can all be used as a learning tool for a successful real estate career.

Cape Coral Real Estate Broker Apologizes

Cape Coral, FL

I feel like I have misrepresented my company, Florida Future Realty, to you. I pride myself of being very transparent, and authentic. The recruiting ads that I have been publishing lately for Florida Future Realty, Inc. have not been as genuine as they should have been in fact they have been quite generic and boring. Bottom line I could lure agents with catchy titles, huge commission splits, or promises that can’t be delivered, but that isn’t me, our how I choose to do business. I am always up front and honest with people whether the news is or isn’t what they would like to hear.

Whether you choose to work at Florida Future Realty or are perfectly content with you current situation, I am just out to make a positive impact on the Cape Coral real estate profession and the way we conduct our business, in turn gaining the confidence of buyers and sellers.

To accomplish that, I will make at the least one short 3-5 minute video a week with helpful and informational tips pertaining to our profession of real estate in and around Cape Coral. I want to help Cape Coral real estate agents new or seasoned answer the questions or concerns their brokers are too busy to address, and tips to help make your transactions seamless. If you would like to speak with me directly concerning any question big or small please don’t hesitate.

"Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.”

Cape Coral real estate career

The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can't be done.
C. V. White
