Increase your Listing Inventory


What are the differences between working with buyers and working with sellers?

  1. When you have a listing, everyone in the area knows you are selling the house because they see your sign.  When you are working with buyers, very few people know.
  2. When you are working with buyers you are working for all the agents in the area to sell their listings.  When you are working with sellers all the agents are working for you to sell your listings.
  3. Buyers take more time and sellers take less time.
  4. Listings generate sign calls.
  5. You can be out of town and sell a listing.  With buyer’s, you have to be there to make a sale.

To get more listings, you obviously have to do more prospecting. We will assume that you are prospecting on a consistent basis, but need support with your listing presentation.
Here are the key strategies to convert more listing presentations.

  1. Be the best marketer with great marketing skills, negotiation skills and home staging skills.
  2. Stop doing listing presentations and start doing listening presentations.
  3. Don’t tell the seller how you work, ask them what they expect you to do to get their home sold.
  4. Verbalize your value proposition based on their expectations.
  5. Don’t sell, serve.  Be truthful and committed to what you do to get homes sold and let them know what you don’t do and why, especially if it’s something they feel is important.  You need to be sure that you’re on the same page.
  6. Don’t set the price, let the seller set the price.
  7. Have a complete marketing plan that is inclusive of what you will do and when.
  8. Have a scheduled time that you will communicate progress consistently.
  9. Don’t talk commission until they have agreed to market their property with you.

Success Stories

The office is like a team. Everybody is supportive and helpful to one another. There is no competition between agents. Every agent wants their fellow agents to be successful and are more than willing to help them reach that goal.
Kurt M.
From the day I started I have received nothing but encouragement and support. Being a "part timer" I thought I would be left to learn on my own. Not true! Everyone from the manager to every agent in the office and especially our coveyancer have been fantastic and most helpful. I could not have picked a better office.
John F.
What I like about the office is the ample training, flexible schedule, supportive associates, philanthropic owners, successful agents and especially the five star treatment I receive from the staff!
Suzanne G.
I joined because a friend has worked here for years and raves about how wonderful the people in the office are. Being new to the business, I could use all the friendly faces I could get and my friend could not have been more right. Any time I had a question and no matter who I asked, a fellow agent, broker or manager, everyone has ALWAYS stopped what they were doing to answer my questions or assist me with whatever I needed. Thank you!
