Hope you are having a great week and asking a lot of people for referrals.
One of the things I love recovering from is the shock when random strangers give me referrals to listings.
I guess I shouldn’t be shocked. Because I am always asking for referrals.
Especially with clients I am working with right now.
I got a listing lead this week from meeting with a seller on our first meeting. It was to comical. At the end of my listing presentation, as I was walking out the door, I asked the sellers if they have heard of anyone else on the block thinking of selling.
They asked me why I was asking and I said it may affect the timing of listing their property for sale (not a bad line, eh?).
But I am always asking new buyers, new sellers, my SOI, etc. Try to work it in the conversation in a natural way and you will be surprised many times just like I continue to be.
So the takeaway here is to get in the habit of always asking everyone for referrals to listings.
Don’t be shy about it.
Develop the habit so often it becomes a part of you.
Always be asking
