  • 8. Responsiveness – 93%
    Being online is fruitless if you don’t pick up the phone.
    By the time the potential buyer or seller calls…they are ready.
    Technology: use to pull buyers and sellers to you.
    Not the what makes them “decide” to work with you
  • 9. Communication skills – 85%
    “Most days I have at least one caller who takes the time to express their surprise and appreciation for having their phone call answered, and for the time spent with them on the call.” Jeff Brown
    “The only time I don’t answer is when I’m in the middle of an appointment, or it doesn’t ring because sometimes phones are fun like that.” Ben Goheen
  • 10. Use this to your advantage!
    Look at the top skills consumers want from you!
    Narrow it down to the top 3 you are best at
    Market those skills and qualities in every way you can!
    Remember: Technology is just one tool in the world of marketing!
  • 11. This doesn’t mean…
    Technology is irrelevant
    Blogs are stupid
    Facebook is never going to get you a lead
    Having a website is a waste of money
    Putting ads in the newspaper is the best idea
    It just means– No one is impressed with your skills in technology. They want your skills to be in areas that will actually help them buy or sell a house!
