Generate new leads!

According to Gary Keller’s book Shift, there are plenty of activities that agents can delegate. One thing that should never be delegated is Lead Generation. Keller recommends making lead generation your primary focus every single day.

As a new agent, deciding where to prospect can be pretty tough. Here’s a simple top producer secret: Track which areas have the greatest amount of sales activity by running your hot sheet in flexMLS. Next, focus your prospecting time in the areas that are the most active—that’s where you will have the best luck generating new business. 

Another great way to generate leads are open houses! Before you hold an open house, we recommend taking a gander at the open house sign ordinances.  Even if you don’t have a listing, you can offer to sit an open house for another agent in your office.  Check out our online store to find some great items to make your open house a success.
