Nothing like being back in San Francisco and back in the “groove” getting my listing agent freak on. Do I sound cool? My partner says I sound like a fool when I talk this way. LOL! What can I say? I am a freak-a-zoid as my young niece says.
And I’m a freak about getting listing referrals. Another way to them?
Give them out.
I am really in this hot referral space where I am receiving some good referrals from my SOI and nothing to solidifies your referrals base more than to give them referrals in kind.
I just gave my best contractor a $6 million referral to a 2 unit building remodel here in SF that an acquaintance of mine has been working on getting permitted for the last 2 years. It’s going to be a big project.
And it’s not a coincidence that this contractor has given me a ton of referrals. He once introduced me to a Dad who works at a high tech company that bought one condo for each of his 3 children.
So the best way to get referrals is to really look at your SOI and figure out how you can get them business.
This includes, and is not limited to, your contractors, your probate attorneys, your estate attorneys, your CPAs, your insurance agents, etc. You get the picture.
Scratching their back with referrals is probably the most powerful way you can almost guarantee referrals back to you.
And isn’t it a great feeling to be helping out your peeps with their business?
