I just received a great phone call out of the blue. One of my peeps in my sphere of influence with whom I have been staying in touch with for years called me to “explore” the idea of listing her very large San Francisco home for sale.
And I received this lead and became friends/acquaintances with this person from one key thing I have been doing for years.
Volunteering at non-profits.
I have been on committees and boards that were near and dear to my heart for the past 25 years including the San Diego Hospice Corp., Artists for AIDs Relief, the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
All of these organizations do great work and I loved being a part of them.
And I made great friendships and met a lot of people that have given me great listing referrals, including a house I sold last year referred to me by a board member with whom I became great friends.
Agent’s Unleashed, this is a great way to conduct your listing business.
Doing good for others, making great friends and acquaintances and getting killer listings in the process.
It takes determination and time to get involved with the organizations but it is so rewarding.
One caveat…..you can burn a lot of hours for the non-profits if you don’t establish boundaries up front so you don’t get burned out. So set boundaries for yourself.
Otherwise, as the old adage goes, go out there and reap what you sow.
