Get More Listings By Sucking Up? - The Agent Unleashed

Get More Listings By Sucking Up?

Writing from the lovely capital of Panama City, Panama.  We are stopping here for a little while on our way back home to San Francisco.  What a friendly and beautiful country!  The people here are so caring.

And you should be more caring in your listing appointments.  There, I said it.

I was listening to an Epic listing agent’s listing appointment “script” if you will, and I was astonished how this “heave hitter” went on and on relentlessly bragging about how wonderful she was and how she’s number one, blah, blah, blah.

Sellers don’t give a rat’s ass about how wonderful you are.

What they do care about is how wonderful you are as it relates to THEM achieving their goals.

Here’s a rule of thumb:  when you are mentioning your accomplishments, why you are number one, why you are so great, so beautiful, so talented, whatever, ALWAYS tie it back to THEM.  How can it help them.

You’re number one in sales in the Universe?  Why is that good for them?

You’re a specialist in your neighborhood/city?  Why is that good for them?

You don’t have to suck up to them and grovel.  Just be more empathetic.

When you are empathetic with them and THEIR goals, they sense that.  That makes them more comfortable with you.  It makes them want to work with you.  It makes them like you.

So stop marveling at how gorgeous you look in your glamour shot and start making it all about them.
