Office Duty and In-House Property Tours STILL WORK on Lake Livingston!

 

 

Office Duty and Agent Property Tours Still Work on Lake Livingston!

 

Many agents no longer work at an office, and that's fine. Real Estate works differently from location to location. Being rural, office duty is still a GREAT thing in the Lake Livingston area market. Lake Livingston is HUGE! Many people hop in their car and take a drive out to the lake and end up frustrated because they are overwhelmed once they get here. So they drop in our office looking for help. Yippee!

 

We also have sellers stop in to list their home. I know it sounds unheard of to all of you big city agents, but living in the country, our people still like face to face meetings -- and a personal touch.

 

I can't tell you how many times people tell me that they see that I work hard simply because they see my car at the office EVERY day. And that is why they call me when they are ready to buy or sell. They know I suit up, show up, and work hard EVERY day. 

 

And just like being at the office, suited up, and ready to work -- STILL WORKS -- So does in-house property tours.

 

Our two Lake Livingston Area Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Anderson Properties offices get together on Wednesday mornings and we go out and look at any of our listings that have not been toured. We tour from 9 am to Noon.  

 

Here's what happened on our last property tour:

 Office Duty and In-House Property Tours STILL WORK!

When we went to the first property, I heard one agent say "OH! I have buyers coming next week looking for something just like this!!"

 

2nd Property: "HOW much is this? GREAT! I have buyers looking in this price range!"

 

4th Property: (Same agent that commented on the 2nd property) "Wow! They can look at this one, too!!"

 

5th Property: Selling Agent: "What do you think of the price?" General Consensus: It needed to be lowered.  (Result: Price Lowered)

 

We toured  8 properties in 6 different subdivisions.

 

 

Results:

Two new agents are familiar with 6 subdivisions. 

3 properties are going to be shown.

An agent was able to help their seller realize that their asking price needed to be lowered.

Our agents are better equipped to assist their buyers and sellers.

 

Technology is awesome, and I love it. But some of the old fashioned things like office duty and in-house property tours STILL work today!
