prelisting packages,blog cover page,normalcy

Top of the morning to you fellow activerain members,

I could use your help. It is a business question that I have been toying with and I put this out there to get the feedback that I can always count on. Your honesty is refreshing.

I am starting to put prelisting packages together again. It would be nice to always meet the people and let them know who we are, and our commitment.

I cannot think if they truly ever have been that great of a tool, but recently I thought that with the ability for consumers to find out more about us as Realtors maybe I could keep it simple, put still polished.

Point. I really find it wonderful to look at activerain members blog sites. This allows us to have fun, really let the people in our community what we are about, and hopefully, in our own way, give something back.

Does anyone have great success with prelisting packages, and do you put a print of your main page of your blog site(s) so individuals may ask what is this? They go to there computer and look at activerain and localism and realize that we really are professional people that really have a great interest in community and basic life.

I welcome any advice that you may have.

Thank you very much

Tom Braatz

Tom, I have a great pre-listing package that I will email you, send me a request at

Missy@MissyCaulk.com

Use what you want and I have great success with it. I send it out PRIOR to the appointment, to get them and myself ready. Anyone else can ask too.

Thank you for the comments. I already have a StarPower coach. I am trying to get to have a more personal

approach.

Kudos to you Tom and Missy....what a great idea, I had forgotten about that...after you're in this business a long time I guess things like that get lost.  Also though, don't forget the old school of AFTER the listing appointment, to send them a thank you note, or better yet, get their email address and send them a cute internet e-card, either way....if you are up against several other agents for the listing, guess who will be first in their minds? YOU!...follow up!!!...lol DEE

Dee,

That's my Search and rescue dog lars.

He is photogenic; I am not.

"Lars" is the best dog you will ever meet. He is a great therapy dog, and my clients, customers, and friends love him. He has made me a better person. Just a humble guy with dog hair on his suit. Me, not Lars.

Get me going about him and I will talk your ear off.

The truth is everyone has a great dog, and we will be the first to show them off.

A prayer for the less fortunate dogs goes out as well.

Thank You Dee for putting this big smile on my face!

Tom, I use a pre-listing package and I also use follow up letter. Usually once I have the appointment I get the listing. Providing the potential client with details is extremely helpful.

When I have talked with a potential client I sent out a color personal brochure as a way of introduction.  I also offer a public service tape (CD) for sellers or buyers depending on which category they fall into.  I secure an appointment and then use a PowerPoint presentation.  I do this the same every time.  I never miss a listing!  This is powerful stuff and it get results.  So why not separate yourself and your services by using a prelisting package.  Mine is minimal my intent is to get an appointment.  Then a client with my presentation.  Hope this helps.
