ADOPTION in the REAL ESTATE MARKET - When a Door Closes, A Window Opens :)

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

On 8/27/09 we attended our local Board of REALTORS ( GNIAR )annual meeting at the Avalon Manor Banquet Hall located @  US 30 in Merrillville, IN.

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......

Whenever A Door In Life Closes For One A Window Opens For Another :)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! 

HAS YOUR REALTOR left the FIELD of PRACTICE of REAL ESTATE ?

If so, and you are in need of the Services of a FULL TIME PROFESSIONAL TEAM....

Hi Dave - meant to email you about the mention- glad you don't mind - your post inspired my thinking on this one somewhat- if you don't mind,  I'd like to post a few listings of investment properties in LaPorte to your group when we get some spring photos of them LOL... wouldn't you know it's spring and there is still snow on the ground here in NW IN :)

Thanks

Time to start getting that boat ready!!:)   I don't know about people leaving the industry here in RI. I will know better when the new list comes out as we are all up for renewal at the end of April. It seems like there are a zillion of them still out there. Hope all is well with you guys:)

Not here in Indiana yet Karen - there is still snow on the ground LOL Our Boat won't see water until May :(. Here in NW IN our renewal was in January &  we had people leave or get a job and do Real Estate only part-time now. We are busy thank God! Thanks for taking time to stop by and comment.

Sincerely,

Grace

Our boat won't get in until May either. We have a ton of things to do and it's quite cold here now. But we are daydreaming:)

Thanks for stopping by to clarify - I imagined you on the boat in a Parka and thought - now thats an AVID boater :)
