It might be hard to get a clientele following or a base of clients, but it can be done – and the methods aren’t complicated. Don’t be afraid to get out there and make connections with people, focusing on the particular portion of the market you will specialize in(it’s better than going too broad). Keep people informed on what’s going on in the market and keep your senses tuned to any changes in your clientele’s desires. It’s simple, but staying connected will help you greatly in building a solid set of listings.
