GROW YOUR DATABASE
KNOW YOUR MARKET
Know Your Market Script
Knowing the market through researching everything that unfolds in MLS is helpful as far as having knowledge and a reference point for what is going on out there. Getting into the homes and seeing the layout, the condition, the location, and the details of the property will make you far more resourceful.
You gain a ton of credibility with online leads when you have been in the homes they are calling about. They could make assumptions about you as an agent, including that you are knowledgeable, active in the market, and have access to information they can’t gather from an online search.
Pricing In The Market Script
One of the most important elements of learning the listing side of the real estate business comes down to getting your client to agree on a price where the home will actually sell by pricing in the market.
Many homeowners will believe that their home is worth more than it actually is in today’s market. It’s easy for people to argue your opinion on price, but it’s much harder to argue with fact. Gain their agreement through the use of the right comps and an explanation of how the market determines pricing.
IT STARTS WITH YOUR SPHERE
Sphere - Neighborhood Market Update Script
When it comes to staying in touch with our sphere of influence the number one objection I hear from most agents is that they aren’t sure what to say if they keep calling. They don’t want to bother people.
If every time you call your sphere you are just asking for business or referrals and you are not seeking ways to find value then you will always feel like you are bothering people. If you are always asking for things people will dodge your calls. When you are always coming from contribution people will be looking forward to speaking with you. What service or information can you provide?
One of my favorite books on lead generation in real estate applies to both your sphere of influence and your vendor referral network. I highly recommend reading a copy of 7L: The Seven Levels of Communication: Go From Relationships to Referrals by Michael J. Maher.
The book is a love story that lays out a plan for staying in contact with your sphere of influence and vendors by constantly seeking to add value to their lives and businesses. Michael is the founder of the Generosity Generation, and he shares tremendous value in his book on ways to build value as a connector of people.

VENDOR REFERRAL NETWORK
Lisa Chinatti Interview: How Online Leads to me from 8 to 80 to 200+ Transactions per Year
Lisa Chinatti of Chinatti Realty Group discusses her strategy for using online lead generation to drive business to her real estate team. Between 2015 and 2017, Lisa grew from a solo agent completing just 8 transactions in a year to a team of 14 agents completing over 200 transactions last year with a goal of breaking 400 transactions in 2018.
Online Lead - Property Information or Showing Request Script
Online leads are a serious change of pace for agents that are used to working only their sphere of influence. They offer a ton of upside potential since most prospects begin their search online, but they also come with some new challenges.
People have a short attention span and they are looking for immediate response and results when they start clicking buttons for more information online. Not only is your response time important, but you will need to provide them with some immediate value and build urgency to get a face-to-face appointment when the lead is qualified.
Lisa Chinatti Interview: Online Leads - Zillow vs Google vs Facebook
Listen as Lisa Chinatti breaks down their online lead conversion numbers that lead to over 200 team transactions in 2017. Lisa discusses how she increased her ad spend, how many leads they generate on a monthly basis, and her conversion rates.
Lisa also explains the difference between the leads they generate from sites like Zillow vs the online leads generated from Google Adwords and Facebook Ads.
Secondary Transactions - Open House Invite for Neighbors Around Your Listing
Your listings create tremendous opportunities to meet other potential buyers and sellers. There is no greater opportunity that getting your face out in the neighborhood and meeting the neighbors. Your listing will probably not be the only home in the neighborhood that sells this year. Whether you choose to knock on doors or make the calls is up to you. This script will work either way.
Take this opportunity to get out their and leverage your listings into additional new clients.
EFFECTIVE OPEN HOUSES
Open Houses - Converting Prospects to Clients at Open Houses
One of my favorite things about real estate sales is that there is no benefit to being pushy. Trying to make someone buy a home that they don’t want when they are spending a quarter of a million dollars to upwards of a million or more is just not effective. It forces agents who want to be successful to become masters at finding out exactly what the client wants and what they qualify for.
The sooner we can start that conversation and build trust by showing sincere interest in helping a client to get exactly what they want, the easy it will be to convert prospects to clients. This script helps you start that conversation at your very first introduction in an Open House.
