T’was the end of the year and all through the bullpen
The agents were moaning, “It will improve WHEN?”
Short sales and rentals had given them gray hair,
And left the poor agents not a moment to spare.
Despair and exhaustion did linger and hover
But the pulse of the market beat just a bit stronger.
Faintly at first, then with detectable pace,
More contracts, more closings and more breathing space!
And Kevin in his wisdom and with usual aplomb
Prepared all the agents for the latest tech bomb.
The keys to success he laid out on a platter
“Buyers and sellers need to feel that they matter!
Get up in the morning! Get ready for work!
Don’t let the poor clients believe you’re a jerk.
Keep up on the market, know the neighborhood lore.
Preview, preview, and preview some more!
Relationship management is the buzz this new year
CRM, LeadRouter, Market Leader are here!
Your leads will be tracked from birth until closing,
You’ll never lose touch even when you’re caught dozing.
Drip emails, contact logging, the occasional phone call
Ingredients for success, letting agents stand tall
Feeding the prospects the latest listing information
Of homes and condos and investment situations.
Clients using the platforms to do their own searching
On your shoulders they feel like scavengers perching
Checking behind you, sure you are missing
The best deals out there, ripe for the bidding.
But, lo, to the doubting Thomas’ delight
Imagine their glee when they find you are right!
Market values are climbing after years of decline
And to lose on a bid makes everyone whine.
Be the best at reading the market’s condition
Using RealValuator gives you big ammunition!
Price the listings to sell and clue in the buyers
Houses are selling and prices are higher!
More listings, good listings are what you need now
To control the market and draw a big crowd
Of buyers clamoring for a really great house
To shelter the family and please the spouse.”
And as he turned to leave us, we heard Kevin exclaim
“Use the tools on the table, no time to complain!
You’re poised to achieve unlimited success
Get out there and do what you love to do best!”
Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for a GREAT 2013!
