You have to set your funnel right, nurture the leads and keep clients engaged during the process which will define successful transactional pattern of a agent.
Unlike many other businesses, real estate agents most oftenly roll independently, even if they are a part of a team. Diligence and determination becomes challenging with no one looking over their shoulders. Practicing discipline in the daily tasks is hard and painful but not being perseverant is even more painful.To reap the rewards later, it is important to manage all the cards of the deck in order even more when no one is monitoring you.
Your first encounter with the prospect happens over the phone most often than not. Having clear communication skills and interacting skills enhances the confidence and trust of you in your prospect’s head. Penning down the first set of property information over the phone professionally is where you need to get better of. Say clearly and directly, whether you're speaking to someone in person, on the phone, or via email. If you ramble on, your prospect will either tune you out or will be unsure of exactly what you are willing to communicate.
