a word from the
Why Agents Don’t Answer Their Phones... Don’t they Want to Move Their Listings?
This is it! You believe you have just found the perfect home for your customer and you are pretty excited about it! BUT…… You need the answer to a couple of questions, so you pick up the phone, dial the number and get voicemail. You leave a message, hoping for a quick response. After about an hour, you call again, hoping THIS time you will get a live person on the other end of the line. No such luck.
6. Agents who will not answer their phones except Monday through Friday, 10 am – 4 pm.
Worse still, the voicemail box is now full and cannot accept any messages.
1. Agents do not answer their phones.
You send a text. Wait half an hour. No response. So, you call the office number you have and you get an automated answering system which gives you many options which are of no use, no option to speak with a live person and finally, you get the “dial by name directory”. Once you get to the correct extension, you get to leave another message. And wait. You look at the clock. It’s approaching 5 pm and it’s Friday afternoon. You would really like to set up a showing over the weekend and you are becoming just a bit anxious. If you can’t get through, your customer may lose the opportunity for this home because you KNOW you will not be able to connect with anyone to set up the appointment on a Saturday morning. Does this happen to you? How do you get people to call back? More importantly, WHY don’t AGENTS answer their phones or call back? Don’t they want to move their listings? Top Ten Communication Problems: 10. Some agents just “ignore” their phones because the calls disrupt other things they are doing. Then they will “reason” that it’s after hours and too late to return the call by the time they even look at their missed calls. 9. Many agents do not work from the office and many brokerages don’t have an office staff or require agent desk time to answer incoming calls. 8. Part time agents cannot answer their phones for real estate calls while they are at their “regular” jobs, but then don’t want to spend their “personal time” returning calls. 7. Agents rely on technology (call centers, MLS show button, etc. as their sole means of connecting with other agents. Not all questions can be answered by standard listing information or a call center.
5. Agents do not respond to texts. (Some don’t know how to text) 4. Agents do not call back. 3. Agents never clear out voicemail, so the box is perpetually full. 2. Agents do not listen to their voicemail. Result: Two customers (at least) have not been served to the best and highest standards of our industry. The question is….are YOU one of “those” agents? How much business are YOU losing? Not only from not answering or returning calls from other agents, but from potential customers? There is only ONE way to fix this problem. Answer your phone every time, if you can. Sometimes, it’s not possible, especially if you are sitting in the dentist’s chair or are in the shower. DO listen to your voicemail and return calls in a prompt and timely fashion, even if it’s “after hours” or on the weekend, whether it’s another agent or a customer. While it is important to maintain balance, keep in mind, taking a few minutes away from your kid’s birthday party while everyone is eating pizza to return a call won’t make or break the enjoyment of the event, but it could result in a sale or a new customer. You can even return the call just to let them know you only have five minutes, but can call them back in a couple of hours when you can give them your full and undivided attention. Just make sure that you DO make that call back when you say you will. Remember, customers are more likely to need Realtors® during non-traditional business hours. This means early mornings, evenings, weekends and sometimes even holidays. It may not be what you expected or planned on when you became a Realtor®, but it’s just one of the brutal facts of the business. Your customers work during “working” hours, which means you have to work when they are available. When I entered the Real Estate business in 1992, I did so with the understanding that it was a seven day a week affair and I would be getting calls at all hours of the day and evening. I still do. Being a real estate professional is not a job; it is not a career; IT IS a lifestyle.
Florida Realtor’s Annual AE Symposium
A few weeks ago, I attended the Florida Realtor’s® annual AE Symposium in Cocoa Beach, FL. The weather outside was horrendous, thanks to tropical storm Andrea, but inside it was an atmosphere of excitement and camaraderie. This year’s theme focused on “Association Management – Explore the Possibilities”. We were privileged to hear so many wonderful speakers, participate in round table discussions and network and share ideas with other AE’s across the state. Our key speakers were Patti Wood whose topic was “Dealing with Difficult People” and Adorna Carroll who spoke to us about the relationship with our “Volunteer Leaders”. Both of them were extremely informative and entertaining. We also heard from representatives from Corelogic, RPAC, IMAPP, Metro Market Trends, MFRMLS, Navica, Point2, Sentrilock, Supra and many of the FR departments. In addition, we had the opportunity to interact with them and have many of our questions answered. It was a very full 3 days and well worth our time to attend.
ATTENTION All Brokers As a broker, it is your responsibility to notify your local board when the status changes for one of your agents. This includes all changes reported to DBPR (new agent, inactive agent, etc. This especially applies when an agent leaves your firm as this could result in billing issues for your office with MFRMLS.

June’s Mixer at GrillSmith was another successful event for CPAR. Over 30 people attended and enjoyed great appetizers while enjoying informative one on one conversations and the sharing of business.

Our next After Hours Mixer will be on August 6th at 5:30 to be held at Quail Hollow Golf and Country Club.

GMM SPOTLIGHT Joe Flynn with Landy Insurance for Professionals was CPAR’s speaker for the June meeting. Joe discussed the importance of E & O Insurance (errors and ommissions) and how most brokerages are underinsured. Each claim to defend yourself could be in excess of $80,000. The public perceives the Realtors® as having deep pockets (although most of us are just like everyone else and making a living.) Even as an individual agent /independent contractor, you need to make sure your E & O coverage extends back to the beginning. Did you know that if you leave a brokerage, your E & O insurance cancels with that Broker and if you are sued from a former client, you may not be covered unless you have Tail Insurance. What is that? A provision found within a claims-made policy that permits an insured to report claims that are made against
JOE FLYNN - June Speaker the insured after a policy has expired or been canceled, if the wrongful act that gave rise to the claim took place during the expired/canceled policy. Joe stated that we should always document all issues as they happen, put the date and all information in writing. He also stated that we should never recommend someone to our customers/clients, always suggest if you must and give three names. Now ask yourself do you have enough insurance being an independent contractor?

6 Power Tips for Making Your Listings Go Viral
by Jovan Hackley
Back in 96’ Bill Gates said “Content is King” and the phrase rang out around the world. If I could, I’d edit BIll’s statement to say “COMPELLING” content is king — and this is especially true when it comes to listing marketing. Today, effective property marketing is about more than blindly alerting the masses that there’s a listing for sale. If you really want your listings to cut through the clutter and reach the most motivated prospects, you have to do everything in your power to make them viral (a.k.a. shared by lots of people repeatedly online). Here are six ways to “infect” your followers, friends, and fans with your for sale listings and get their help in spreading the word to close the deal faster: 1) Go Photo Crazy Pictures are worth a thousand words…and quite a few shares. If you really want your listings to go viral and reach more potential buyers, you need to have 8 or more high-quality photos that catch buyers’ eyes. When you’re out shooting online property photos, remember how we started this chat – compelling content is king. That means you need to look for the quirky, special, and high-value add ons that separate your listings from the rest. 2) Sell the Story When you’re listing the home, one of the questions you need to ask your sellers is, “What makes this house so great?” Every listing has a story, and sharing that tale can be a great way to generate local and social press while giving potential buyers more reasons to connect. For inspiration on how to blog and share a listing’s story, check out the Trulia’s Luxe Blog. To get the fodder you need to blog and share the good on your listings, download Trulia’s Listing Survey for New Seller Clients. Get your clients to fill this out and they’ll practically write the shares, blogs, and listing description for you. 3) Stick Your Social Street Team On It When I visit a restaurant’s website, I expect to see glowing statements about its service and cuisine. Honestly, most of the time I overlook them and head straight for the menu to make my own eval. But, when I see a five-star Yelp review from a friend that says I have to try the truffle cheesecake, I know I have to make a trip. Why? No, it’s not (only) because I’m a cheesecake fiend. Like 88.1 percent of Internet users, I view the Internet and my social networks as a sources of information while I’m shopping. As an agent, you can use this trend to help sell your listings. When you first sit down with sellers, talk to them about a plan for sharing their for sale listings with their networks via e-mail, Facebook, and any other way they connect with people.
Chances are your sellers aren’t alone in wanting their home to sell for top dollar and fast. Other vested parties, like co-workers, parents, or even neighbors, can make great members of your “Social Street Team” that helps market the listing to an audience of buyers you may not be able to reach otherwise. One quick idea for leveraging your seller’s social networks Consider inviting your sellers’ friends, family, and neighbors to a special secret Facebook group where you post marketing materials and regular updates they can use to help market the property online. 4) Make Your Showings Social Now, adding your open house to Trulia gets you a photo promotion in Trulia’s search results. To start using this feature now, visit Trulia.com/MyListings. The common-sense genius of planting a yard sign should also be applied online. Today with tools like Facebook Events, FourSquare Checkins, and Trulia’s Upcoming Open Houses, it’s easy to let buyers know your listing is for sale and open for viewing. Unfortunately, too many agents overlook these easy opportunities to connect with motivated buyers. 5) Farm Followers What if you could reverse how property searches work? What if you could go out and find qualified buyer prospects instead of waiting for them to stumble across your listing? Well, the truth is you can. Finding serious buyers online isn’t as hard as you would think. Here are two easy free ideas for finding the buyers online who are a good fit for your seller’s listing: • Saved Twitter Searches-Most Twitter management tools, like Hoote suite and Tweetdeck, offer you the ability to save search criteria you can revisit from time to time. Setting up a saved twitter search for key words like “House Hunt” and “your area” can be an easy way to farm leads from your follower networks. • Trulia Voices Alerts–Every day on Trulia Voices prospects are posing real estate questions that signal they’re serious house hunters. That’s why every agent should follow their neighborhood on Trulia. As a follower, you’ll get real time alerts when questions are posted and e-mails that help you answer fast. 6) Create a Larger Conversation The last tip for getting your listings shared virally: Don’t shut up. _ There’s a lot of social noise happening. If you really want to get your listing noticed you have to share it repeatedly and find new ways to tell the listing’s story. Just make sure it’s not the only thing you’re sharing; that’ll get you ignored in the end.

CPAR had a wonderful May meeting featuring Margy Grant, Esq., CAR, RCE/Vice President and General Counsel for Florida Realtors®. Her information is geared to protect us as brokers and agents. A few things she covered: (1) Getty Images is on the hunt for real estate agents “borrowing” photos that are copyrighted and using them in MLS, social media, websites, etc. They will catch you and they will fine you. (2) CraigsList. People are taking listings and modifying them, especially rental properties. (3) Don’t advertise other brokerage listings on your media unless you have permission (4) Escrow accounts are the #1 red flag for FREC and DPR audits, Keep up your escrow accounts. Some of these infractions can be Felonies and will terminate your real estate license (5) Set up Google alerts for your name and your company (for brokers). Anytime you are mentioned, you will be flagged and emailed for notification. It is a free service. (6) Keep your files for at least 5 years. (7) Discussed the story of the agent in Tampa who was flagged by Fair Housing for a listing on his IDX website that wasn’t his listing but was a Fair Housing violation. We are fortunate to have Margy come meet with us annually. You need to attend these meetings to stay up to date on your industry. By Deborah Catterton, CPAR Vice President Charles Rutenburg
