If you are new to the real estate profession, understand that past client referrals will be your primary source of business. This is why it is so important to focus on constantly generating referrals. One simple way is to start a Facebook page of your residential neighborhood. Share valueable information such as home maintenance tips, so that your neighbors will view you as a reputable source. Join relevant social meda goups and contribute meaningful information to conversations about the real estate market. When you give clients a housewarming gift for purchasing a home, include your name and contact information on a gift tag so that they come across your info in their home. And finally, network with industry professionals, such as mortgage brokers, insurance agents, and divorce attorneys, so that they think of you (and vice/versa) when making recommendations to clients.
- Everyone is on Facebook and any business that wants to generate new customers have to also be on Facebook, and that also goes for real estate businesses.
- A real estate business can create a facebook page to connect with a community. It can use this page to post and share valuable information.
- For a real estate agent to thrive, he has to be part of a forum, and to also subscribe to other real estate groups on Facebook.
