Season in Cape Coral and Fort Myers real estate

Hey there! If you've been working in real estate and following your plan I'm sure you are experiencing this great beginning of 'season' here in SW Florida real estate. Our agents have been very busy lining up buyer showings, offers and getting properties under contract. Personally I've been working on closing short sales and taking new listings. They have been selling so quickly lately. Yeah, I know, good problem to have, right?

If you haven't been busy selling houses why not? And I said busy selling houses for a good reason. I see all too often where people are 'busy' but they are not 'busy selling houses'. They may be busy checking email, busy playing on the internet, busy networking, busy shuffling paper, etc. But you need to get busy selling houses! How? You need to get in front of more people. Almost everyone can hold a conversation about real estate but only about 1 in 5 people are thinking of buying or selling in the near future. So you have to meet those people. I'm not saying not to talk to the 4 out of 5 who just want to talk, or email or ask you questions but I am saying to focus the majority of your time getting in front of even more people in order to have 5-10 potential customers in your weekly radar at any given time.

We never solicit being pushy or annoying but we train our agents to get out there and meet people and give them good information so that when they are ready to buy or sell real estate they think of you first. You have to keep in touch with them with more valuable information and not just marketing crap. People will see right through your nonsense.

And keep your message positive. Share the good news, share the good 'deals', talk about your success with other customers. Heck, talk about our beautiful weather :) But make sure you keep it honest and positive.

If you need some assistance with your new year to get going or even to simply modify your current plan let me know. I'm always here to help!

As always, make today, and every day GREAT!!!!!
