  • 6 Ways to Wow After the Transaction

    Summary:

    It is easy to wow clients during the transaction. Problem-solving and providing stellar client care comes naturally to a lot of brokers. When a client is in front of us and needs us to do a job, we deliver. This is easy because the job is defined by the contract and our clients’ needs. But what about when the transaction is closed or about to close and there are no more problems to solve?

  • Taking the Online Offline

    Summary:

    As much as I love social media and technology—there is nothing like meeting someone face-to-face. Social media will never replace an in-person meeting at a client’s home, a phone call or a handwritten note. But, when done right—social media can enhance and make the offline experience so much richer and more meaningful.

  • Property Management Q & A - Winter 2017

    Summary:

    Question: I just assumed management of an older building in unincorporated King County and we recently noted that several of the residents have blocked or even 'taped off' the baseboard heaters because 'they don't use them.' These tenants have chosen to use portable space heaters instead. My concern, obviously, is that there is still electricity to the units and that this could be a fire hazard. Can we have our maintenance folks disconnect the baseboard heaters for safety? Do we need to have the tenants sign off on something like this? The living spaces are small so it makes sense as it gives more use of the room.

  • You Can't Improve What You Don't Measure

    Summary:

    Real estate is a business of people. But how you find these people, how you stay connected, how long it takes you to convert and close a client, and all your expenses associated with running your business can be measured by numbers. Numbers make it easy for you to measure how you are doing in your business and can help you determine how, or if, your business is growing.

  • Advanced Email Marketing

    Summary:

    Email marketing is not a new concept—but it's one of the most important things to think about when you think about your marketing strategy. Email is not as fun as Facebook or as new as Snapchat—but a great email marketing strategy can make a tremendous difference in keeping in touch with your clients and building your business.

  • Consult The Coach - Winter 2017

    Summary:

    I resist writing down my business and marketing plans. Instead, I keep them all in my head. The problem is that my implementation is inconsistent and I sometimes lose track of my goals. I am willing to write some things down, but am intimidated by the 25 page business plans that my managing broker gives me each year. It seems like too much work and a waste of time. I put them on a shelf and never look at them. What do you suggest?
