I just met a woman yesterday here in Panama of all places that has a friend who needs a listing agent in San Francisco. Yes!
This reminds me that as UNLEASHED listing agents, we have to ALWAYS be doing what’s expected of us.
Know what that is?
Asking everyone for referrals.
It is so interesting to me that when talking to other listing agents about this, how reticent they are about asking for referrals.
Had I not asked this woman yesterday, I would be out a great lead.
How many deals are you missing out on in a year by not asking for referrals?
And you can ask for them in a real non-douchey way by using my line of, “Yes, I’m a listing agent in San Francisco and the market is so crazy right now because we don’t have enough motivated sellers, so let me know if you know anyone thinking about selling please.”
I once went to a party and got 2 referrals from my client’s party guests, one of which turned into a super swanky listing (in all honesty, one of the leads was because of my client touting my skills as an Unleashed listing agent).
So step up your game. Once again, this is a great way to get listing leads without spending any money and without any extra effort.
Send me a note here and tell me how you ask for referrals.
