Networking With Other Realtors®/Agents!
What are You Doing? For Greater Exposure to Increase Referrals!(part#1)
As a Point2 member I often come across information that I believe will benefit other members!
Consequently I've written this posting! Read through it and you will increase your knowledge,
your connections, and your networking capability.
After all, that's what it's all about! Presenting Seller's with the greates exposur for their listing!
And bringing more buyers to view the home, and potentially selling it, for you and the Seller!
As a Realtor®/agent, marketing strategist and sales person, living and working
here in Columbus, Indiana. I find Real Estate to be very interesting, very
rewarding and very full filling as a career. What I find though, is that the
majority of my counter-parts/peers may soon fade into the sunset. The majority
of them are good, potentially great agents, and I commend them for that.
However in a competitive marketplace, being "good" will only cut it, for so
long. Agents have to be current or better still, on the forefront of
technology, Think! "Out of the Box!", and find ways to Brand themselves as
One of the first items in my list of planned marketing, was to get my name
"Martin Dorgan" out there in the public eye, and in the face of other Brokers
and agents, because the exposure would only increase the potential for
additional business; maybe not initially but in the future! One of the sites I
joined initially is Broker Agent Professional, which I revisit from time to
time, especially their referral agent page. This time I noted something of
interest; which made me think! About a comment I here often while researching
Real Estate topics on the Internet:"5% of Agents, do 90% of the Business!"
It's No Wonder Why! 5% of Agents, do 90% of the Business! Look at the apathy in
agents participating and signing up with Broker Agent Professionals 30% Referral
Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New
Mexico, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South
Carolina ,Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wyoming. (28 states
represented out of 52, any not noted, have no representation from an agent or
Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan.(Out of
the 12 Provinces only 6 have agent or broker representation)
The Broker/Agent 30% Referral Directory
Here you will find only the finest real estate professionals throughout the
United States and Canada.
Rest easier knowing your client is in the hands of a true professional...
- Pre-Screened and Endorsed by Broker/Agent
- Only one professional is chosen per city or marketing area
- Members promise you a 30% buyer side referral fee
Statistics on the average representative in this directory:
- Licensed for 7-10 years
- Over 20 annual transaction sides per year
- Over $5 million in annual sales per year
- Have lived over 7 years in the city they are representing
- Are in the top 20% of producing real estate professionals in their area
I imagine the 90% plus Brokers/Agents don't need the potential business that
could be achieved through this network. Or Maybe they aren't aware of it? But
possibly they don't want to increase their current expenditure, because it's not
free! Each to his own it's a personal choice? But "ONE" referral over the
period of a year would pay for it.
We, as Realtors®/Brokers or Agents are rewarded by what we put into our
careers, be it, new prospects, new contacts, SOI contacts or Referrals from our
fellow agents across the Nation, or our current clients passing along a
recommendation to their family, friends, co-workers, or neighbors.
Take advantage of every source available to you! Including contacts made through
a new real estate network AdvantageML(which offers free placement of listings!) or NAFREP.

NAFREP is a new organization, still in it's infancy, but it presents a great concept that isn't that far in the future!
Just imagine the possibilities??? of joining a an organization from start up!
It's like being offered a chance at an IPO for a stock! Maybe not a good analogy in today's market,...
But you will get the idea! If you take that first baby step, and check it out.
