Who Do You Know...

Who Do You Know...

Cheesy. One thing I don't do is cheesy. This opening is cheesy.

Of course everyone has their own opinion, and it might work awesome for you, but I have no interest in this.

"Who do you know... who needs to buy or sell in the next 30 days?"

"Who do you know... that could use my help in selling their house?"

"Who do you know... at work that might be looking to purchase a house in the next few months?"

I might not get as many referrals as the next agent, but I do alright. I'm not going to end the conversation with a line like this.

I wouldn't want anyone to think that I'm cheesy.

Cheesy

I do talk about my business when it's brought up. Sometimes even by me. I won't ask for business that way, though. If it comes up in conversation, fine. If not, fine, too.

"Who do you know... that does this?"

Eric, cheese is for eating.  Roger said it well, whatever works for you.

Hey Everyone, I didn't write this to tell people what to do or not to do, it was just me saying that I don't want to be cheesy. I fully agree with anyone and everyone who says "whatever works for you."

So Eric, Who DO you know? ROFL.

I think it so muich more effective to drive around in a logo wrapped car. Much less cheesy.

Altho, I have to say, I would love to have one of those branded moving vans. I think I would make a killing.

Not cheesy, just good advertising and PR

Happy Dad's Day!

Thom, I think the moving van with your mug all over it is a great idea, too. But the liability scares me.

Nope, not in my vocabulary, either.  I always share that I'm a Realtor® always looking to help anyone if they know of anyone.  But, that's about it.  I do ALWAYS close a transaction with if you know anyone, I'd appreciate a referral, if you think I did a good job.  Or, I'd love to help any of your friends and families like I helped you.  Please feel free to have them give me a call.  Otherwise, I just feel too, well, cheesy!!!  I liked that, LOL.
