America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
I have read a lot of post on this website and others and it is very obvious that most of us would like to generate more business through different outlets. There are a lot companies out there want to charge up front fees to join their network with no results. It kind of dawn on me that I put time and effort to obtain my real estate license and earn my MBA and a few certifications and why am I being insulted to pay for something that I already know. Not to say that I am not open to new ideas because I am.
Yes we are in a different market but the basis are the same. Without buyers or sellers we will not earn a commission. So I said to myself I can generate my own leads with my own efforts which I have done. Yes it is better to get your own
default list and cold call, mail or door knock for business and refferals.
If I go to the store to buy milk I want to exchange at that moment. If I go out and buy a car I want that exchange at that moment. It does not work a lot in this arena. You join a company for refferal and you hope for an exchange but they say you be added to a list or refund you in a year if you do not receive anything. What a joke.
If a 1,000 agent across the country join a company at 300.00 that is 300,000 which they can put in an interest bearing account to cover their overhead and on top of that a small percentage are selected out of 1,000. Have you ever wondered why one person has 25 leads from a company you both signed up with and you live in the same area and have none? Think about it.
Going forward if I join a company and I can not receive a listing within 30 days it is not worth it. This comes down to
how I value myself and business.
There is plenty of business out there. You just have to renew you mind and make it happen for yourself.
Have a great day
