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.
