The statistics reported that day about the drop-out rate of REALTOR members in the last year (High of 2600 agents at one point in NW Indiana to current 2100+ and projected decrease to 1800 agents by 2010 )...
reminded me of this BLOG I wrote last year .....
and how servicing the friends, family & clients of those who were once active collegues in our profession is very important!
While writing out Happy Anniversary greetings the other day for past CLOSINGS, I came across a Multiple Listing Data Sheet in which we were the LISTING AGENTS and the BUYER was a REALTOR !
I remember the transaction well. She was relatively new in the field, and Jeff was kind & patient enough to explain tax pro-ration ( Indiana Pays Property Taxes in Arrears ) and many other First Time HOME Buyer Questions that she had....remembering....we were all NEW once :)
I did an MLS Search and found she is no longer an active REALTOR.
This question came to mind......
WHO WILL SERVICE THE FUTURE REAL ESTATE NEEDS OF THOSE PROFESSIONALS in The Real Estate Industry who are Leaving the Profession?
WE WILL !
So, I wrote the Happy Anniversary Card with a personalized note, and plan to contact a few others that we know, to stay in touch, in an attempt to ADOPT Future Business! From a group of former competitors and peers, who all have family and friends and NEW co-workers, comes a source for the generation of new found Referrals!
