How Am I Going to Relate This Photo to Real Estate?

How Am I Going to Relate This Photo to Real Estate?

   Bart & Samantha -HomeRome 410-530-2400         Samantha + Eggs -HomeRome 410-530-2400

My friend Gary sent this photo of Bart and Samantha  months ago. He knew it would wind up in one of my blogs, sort of a dare. Then a couple days ago he sent me the second photo. So how am I going to relate these photos to real estate?

I could talk about the tortoise and the hare. You know the slow but determined turtle just kept going, one foot in front of the other constantly in motion crossing the finish line to beat out the "bragging how fast he was" rabbit. Nah...did not want to go in that direction.

It seems that everywhere we look, the topic is a slow  market.  Just tune into your TV, Radio and local newspaper.

Real Estate, especially now, is not a quick, get rich, make fast deals, become a gazillionair and get out. It takes time, it takes patience, it takes showing up and being there.

Like blogging the leads and contacts don't show up with one post, no matter how good it is  not  even it gets FEATURED.

The buyer doesn't show up  because of one  advertisement.  You don't get a client for life with a personlized keychain.

When you build your business one satisfied client at time, you get referrals and you get repeat business. You keep doing the basics, marketing the heck out of your properties, giving the best service and answering your phone.  Before long you have a following, a reputation, and you have results.  You have an established real estate business!

It is the deliberate repetitive proven strategies that builds results over time. Find what works and use it along with all the other marketing tools.

A phone call from a seller wanting to know what I would do to get her home sold. I asked, how did you find me? The answer, of course, was the internet. Each of her searches kept coming up with me.

And each of her searches were leading back to a blog. She put in her zip code, her neighborhood, a favorite restaurant, the gym, a pizza place, a local deli. Each time she got results linking back to me, Margaret Rome, HomeRome, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome, a HomeRome listing etc. This did not happen overnight. Some of those links were from posts written 4 years ago.

Those of us who have been here on ActiveRain are getting good results.  Look how I got  this referral.  This kind of thing does not happen overnight!

That's How Am I Going to Relate This Photo to Real Estate!
