Real estate is more than selling homes; it’s about making real connections with people that may lead you to your next sale. This is why networking is an important skill that all real estate agents should have. Agents should tuck their mobile phone away when talking to new people and focus on the other person during the conversation. They should also become visible to their community by participating in local chamber of commerce events and helping to plan local events. Remaining authentic and interacting on social media are two other ways real estate agents can get to know people who may need their services.
- When an agent is successful, he has a good communication strategy and he knows how to communicate his needs to people.
- Networking can help any agent to reach out to clients and the potential for doing so in the digital world is very great.
- To be good at networking one needs to be constantly focused while communicating and that involves avoiding the temptation to look at the smartphone while talking.
“Stand out from other agents by being accessible in-person and via all types of mediums including text and phone.”
