Full Throttle Follow Up #17
It’s July of 2015 and I just signed up a new listing the other day from seller prospect I’d connected with through cold calling back on July 16th of last year. At the time, I was doing the face-to-face meet-up attempts with all these leads, so Personal Visits were part of the mix back then.
In all I made about 30 follow up touches through the mail, in person, or by the phone. I keep a log of them in Evernote and here’s what I have from her record:

Today turned out to be a good day for follow up. While I was only able to make 13 stops, I actually met 8 people face-to-face. That’s a new record for the number of face-to-face contacts in one day. Hootie hoo!

Over the years I’ve come across numerous accounts of real estate agents who just plain jerks. Some agents are jerks to their buyers and some are jerks to their sellers. Some are jerks to other agents and some are jerks to everyone all around.
What’s really boggled my mind though, is that a LOT of these agents seem to be represented as being pretty successful, have been in the business for many years, have top-of-mind-consciousness in their market area, and are not going to go down in flames anytime soon. Their entire approach to the business flies in the face of the free market concept. After all, these agents should have been rubbed out long ago by new agents who are just…
