29 Ways It Pays to Work With a Realtor
Here is a great image that I found, that truly shows “some” of the things that Realtors do for you, when you hire one.
Now, I do say “some” and not everything because Realtors do so much more than just what is below. They do far more than what the general public believe they do.
Hiring a Realtor is always the best option, when it comes to purchasing or selling one of your biggest financial investments of your life.
Before I leave just remember, not all Realtors are created equal. Interview a few and see who can truly deliver what you need.
Sometimes Things Are too Good to Pass By

Halloween Is Almost Here… What Are YOU Doing to Reach Out?
As a new holiday/special event approaches, it gives you, the agent an opportunity to reach out to your past clients and your database…especially those with kids.
A great way to connect is to personally hand out “goodie bags” your clients. You can also host a pumpkin carving party or even a Halloween party. You can also do a contest for the best Halloween
Drawing or even a colouring contest. These are also great ideas for those of you that do geographical farming.
This allows your clients to feel like they are part of your inner circle and NOT just your clients.
Also make sure that all of your clients and network are added in on your social media sites, that way you can keep an eye out on what’s going on with them and will allow you to engage and interact with them even though you are not physically in-front of them.
Speaking of social media, you could ask all of your friends to post their costumes and children’s costume on your page for a Costume Contest. This will greatly increase the traffic on your social media accounts as well as your website.
On Halloween if you are giving out candy, it will allow you to meet the other homeowners in the area. Feel free to chat them up about their children’s costumes. Also don’t forget to add your business card to each treat you give out.

Be There, Be Everywhere
In real estate, it is important to be where the home owners and soon to be home owners are. As a professional, you have so much knowledge and a great ability to help those who are ready to sell or buy. The problem is, the ones who need your help, CANNOT find you.
The best way for others to reach you is truly with social media. If you are new to social media, then pick one platform (site) and start allowing yourself to be accessible to those around you.
We all need a friend in the business, so WHY NOT be that friend?
Social Media gives you the unique opportunity, to express from your own “point of view”, what the market is doing, what it is going to do and how it all affects us. Not only that, but having been in and around thousands of homes a year, you truly know what buyers should be looking for and what sellers should be doing in order to sell for top dollar.
If you want to use social media, but not sure how to do it, do not be afraid. We will be updating you with quick and easy tips to follow in the coming months.
