Mary Ellen is working out great. What a “go-getter”! It appears that the real estate market is picking up speed and we may have to hire more help! Who is spreading rumors about a Real Estate bubble bursting? I tell ya, they ain’t from round here-ah!
Keller Williams Realty Mid Maine has been the best thing for the Maine real estate agent since sliced bread. The classes offered are awesome. From paperwork, lead generation, marketing, coaching and support, it’s no wondering this “model” attracts the top agents from other “old school” brokers. This means that the agent is outfitted with the latest training and technology to better service our seller’s and or buyers. What a refreshing change, to go to work with integrity, be motivated, confident and happy. The usual method of corralling the client in to make the deal, get the money, then send them on their way, is no longer tolerated. Ohh yes… this still happens, even in the largest brokerages. Did you know that 80% of all real estate agents only do 20% of all the transactions and vise-versa? Doesn’t this mean that 80% of the agents are waiting for business to just fall into their lap?
Chit-chatting with other agents, shopping online, coming to work late and leaving early and other mindless tasks occupies their time while waiting for the phone to ring… waiting for the next customer…waiting for their next piece of business. What about servicing their seller? Marketing that home? Finding that niche that will make your sellers property sell faster? You know… customer service! I see it now. The prospective customer won’t be waiting in those lines or beating down their doors.
We hope to better serve our clients using the ideals listed above. Come to think of it…Why would you want to do business elsewhere?
