I got the listing the old-fashioned way. No technology. No internet. No kidding!I got the listing the old-fashioned way. No technology. No internet. No kidding!

As I arrived 5 minutes early to my scheduled appointment, I was excited, thrilled and ready-to-list-this-house! I only had to convince the seller to make the best choice. The night before I improved the listing presentation by making it specific to that property and printed it out in full color and bound it professionally.

I set-up my laptop on his dining room table and couldn't connect to the internet. What?! Oh no! I remained calm and quickly explained that everything was included in the presentation that was on-line. We thoroughly discussed the marketing / advertising plan for his home. It helped that previously we sold a home in the same neighborhood rather quickly at a great price.

I closed with saying that "I may not be the top producing agent in the area but I am an honest and hard-working agent that will get positive results!" A day later after meeting with another agent, the seller phoned to say that he chose me to represent him.

We had his home under contract in 3 days. Would he say he picked the right agent, even with no technology, no internet! Yes, and did.

No kidding!

Awesome job Wanda!  And I loved your statement that you may not be the top producing agent but were hard working and honest!!  That's all a seller really wants.

If listing agents only knew.  You can have a great online listing presentation, but often the bottom line is WHAT YOU LEAVE WITH THE SELLER.

Great Job! I love how you wer honest and mentioned that you "May not be the top producing agent". Sometimes that honestly is more important to the seller and it also shows them that you are willing to work just as hard, if not harder than those top producing agents. Nice Job!

That is what you call improvising on the fly.  And you did well.  Obviously the seller must have liked something about you.

Wanda, I have had this happen about three times recently. I just got an iPad2 to put my listing presentation on so this doesn't occur. But I also have a packet to leave. Great job. You obviously knew your market well and that's why the house was under contract in 3 days.

Thank you Gary, Staying calm really helped!

Sherri, Being honest is definitely the way to go!

Lenn, I agree and always do a wow! presentation and it is theirs to keep.

I appreciate that Bill. And know 2 things when I give my presentation, they will either hire me or they will won't, I work hard to make it me.

Charlie, I love all the newest and great tech stuff too and realize I may need to upgrade in a few areas.

Morris, I had sold a home in that neighborhood and due to the marketing efforts had 2 offers by noon the day after posting it on the MLS.

Tammie, I am very thankful for the outcome!

Wanda - I don't use the computer when I do a listing presentation - I talk to the client, let them know what I will do, take a lot of notes and make sure that they have been to my website. You don't need to use the internet to let people know you will work hard for them and be honest. Those two qualities are the most important ones out there! Bravo!

I love it when I meet someone via personal connections and then have their home under contract faster than I can even use the internet to advertise it.
