Banging on doors trying to get business is so yesterday

    Agents have so much to offer their clients, but interrupting them is not something I would be bragging about.

    I don’t think anybody’s bragging about it, but when you go knock on somebody’s door, interrupt their private solitude, in their fortress of love, you’re just asking for problems.

    I couldn’t help but be taken back yesterday when I got a knock on my door about 8 AM as I was getting ready to meet some clients to show properties.

    As I opened the door, from my prior police experience, I don’t stand open in the doorway, I peak from around the corner. Yesterday was no different, as I opened the door, the only thing the person standing on the other side Of my door, that knocked, could see was about a quarter of my face. To make a further point, he did not recognize me, but I did recognize him. He’s a real estate agent out of my very own office at Remax of Santa Clarita.

    As I teach, the days of interruption marketing are, or should be, something of the past. There are very few people out there in the world that appreciate a sales person banging on their door, removing them from their comfortable place, and then pitching them when they do open the door. Trying to sell them A House or trying to get them to sell their own home. Further inquiring if they happen to know anybody else that may be wanting to buy or sell real estate.

    If you’re in the world of sales, do yourself a favor. Get with it online, put yourself where people are searching for your particular product or service. That way, you are getting people’s permission because they sought you out.

Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service.
