Weekends aren’t time off if you’re a realtor, and that’s because it’s on those 2 days that realtors hold open houses for the ones they’re helping clients sell. Typically they’ll go from 1 to 4 on either days, or both, and that’s because it’s the time of the week when would-be buyers are most…

Published October 25, 2023 by Real Estate Leads
The longstanding belief in pretty much any profession is that if you put your name out there you’ll get business coming your way if you’re offering a service people want and are willing to pay for. This is entirely true for real estate agents too, but the fact is that it doesn’t work effectively to the same extent as it does with other means of making a living. Is that because there are too many realtors and every single one of them has their name out there to the same extent? Absolutely, and that’s why in this business you need…

Published October 12, 2023 by Real Estate Leads
Long gone are the days when there wasn’t an inordinately large number of real estate agents for the amount of available business in any region of Canada. While that’s pretty much always been the case for major metro regions like Greater Vancouver and Greater Toronto,  it is also increasingly true for smaller cities and towns. It’s unlikely we’re ever going back to a time when realtors find it easy to drum up new clientele, and so for this reason every agent is going to have to put a lot more effort into new client generation.
