Sit At Floor Duty…Sit At Open Houses…Sit. Sit. Sit. September 20, 2007

In real estate sales, sitting any where is death sentence.

I read somewhere on Active Rain that an agent was suggesting to new agents to give people a break.

  • Don’t Direct Mail
  • Don’t Phone Call
  • Don’t Door Knock
  • Don’t anything

Their suggestion was to work your sphere of influence, sit at open houses, sit on floor duty and lots of other sits. I agree with working your sphere, but if you don’t take action on developing new contacts, you will fail. Let me repeat that.

You. Will. Fail.

I don’t have a link to this article, it made me sick. I’m sure the agent believed what they are saying. But see, I want you to succeed. Not to fail. I don’t know what the motivation was for this agent to write that blog full of sits.

Do you have a plan to develop new contacts?

Do you have a plan to be a Master of real estate contracts?

Do you have a plan to know your housing inventory?

Do you have a plan to provide value to your sphere?

Do you have a plan to earn referrals?

Develop plans and systems, but don’t sit. Don’t wait for business to find you. This is not retail. This is real estate sales. If you want to sit around and wait, go work at GAP.
