Here are some tried-and-true Power Moves from our book:
1. Daily prospecting is the key to making a lot of money in commercial real estate. Devote two hours of every day to prospecting on the telephone. Do nothing else during this scheduled time, and make sure you do not entertain any interruptions. Record your call results for each contact reached in their respective contact record. Your goal with each phone call is to talk to the real estate decision-maker and
meet that person. People do business with people they know.
2. Send mailers out regularly to every owner or tenant is in your target market. Your mailers must have a consistent message and should compel the recipient to call you. Don’t forget to offer some service for “free” or a take-away. Most people find it difficult to resist free offers. Record every mailer sent in each recipient’s contact record. The secret to a successful direct mail campaign is to send out your mailer at regular intervals. This will further reinforce your branding efforts. Email blasts get ignored and left unopened in the recipient’s spam box.
3. Your database is the foundation of your success. Successful agents all have databases that contain property data, corresponding ownership, tenant information, and lease information. Without this critical information, effective prospecting is not possible. If you are struggling with another software program that was half-heartedly adapted to support commercial real estate sales, you are wasting your
most precious asset—your time. REALHOUND® will be a unique experience for you because we specifically designed it for commercial real estate by the TOP practitioners in the industry.
