Make Real Estate Agents Your Soldiers!

The age-long question of, “the best way to gain and keep relationships with real estate agents” is becoming more obvious … you must give them business to get their business. Of course it isn’t as simple as it sounds. It takes strategic planning, research and the right relationships to help you achieve this goal. First, you must determine who you want to work with. A few suggestions would be looking for the real estate agents with the most listings. Or, who is the most aggressive buyer agents in your market. My advice would be to target two or three new real estate partners to work with and send business to. Once you have your target list of new partners, you now must gain a source of business for them. There are many ways you can do this and lower you overall cost per acquisition. One of the easiest ways with an almost immediate return on your investment is providing homebuyer leads to high-producing buyers’ agents/brokers. Real estate agents are in desperate need of leads, and when they have a strategic partner providing them leads, they are guaranteed to send you all their loan business. Make the real estate agents your soldiers, your army on the frontline. As we know, getting a hold of any lead is the first major battle. By sharing homebuyer leads with a real estate agent, you are doubling your chances of contacting the individual to pre-qualify them for a loan. This is another battle within itself as you always have to make sure that your real estate partners are calling the leads multiple times a week until they get a hold of them. I have spent the last six months putting together a business model to target real estate agents using our traditional marketing methods as our core value to the real estate industry. If you can consistently feed a real estate partner leads day in and day out for less than half of your current budget, you will have real estate agents eating out of the palm of your hand. Activity breeds higher sales, easier recruiting, more agents working in office and paying desk fees to receive leads, and MOST important to you … a happy real estate partner or two. Where do you get exclusive buyer and seller leads and how can you deliver them to your partners on a real-time basis? Our staff of mortgage and real estate marketing professionals can help with the entire process, in fact, we are giving 10 leads away free on any purchase loan marketing consultation.
