Hello everyone! As a new Real Estate Agent I feel like I'm Getting bombarded with different ways to generate leads. What were the most helpful ways for you to generate leads starting off?
Welcome to real estate, Evan!!
It's honestly a great question (surprised more people haven't chimed in yet). I'll try to add my $0.02, but the disclaimer is that I'm not an agent. My clients are, however, so I get to see a third party perspective of what works and what doesn't.
There are obviously a TON of different strategies to get leads (circle prospecting, door knocking, zillow, etc.). However, I think most new agents who find success end up focusing on one strategy and become absolutely stellar at that strategy. Only after they've reached 'success' at that prospective strategy do they move to the next.
I think this is a really important point because a lot of new agents (in my experience) try a new prospecting strategy for a day or two, don't get a bunch of leads, and then give up & start Googling best-prospecting strategies' and try something else. T
Pick one, stick with it, and make it happen! Good luck!
#1 best, cheapest, most profitable resource is your sphere. People who know you and trust you. Family, friends, school friends, frat friends, business friends, sport friends, organization like Scouts friends, work friends, neighbors....start there....then work lists....whatever list you can get....maybe a list from your broker of people who closed with the brokerage and the agent is out of the business. All that should keep you busy through the end of the year. At some point you want to branch out from that.
