As many of us know, being a member of the Osceola County Association of Realtors® also affords us the privilege of being members of the National Association of Realtors® and FloridaRealtors® . This threeway agreement provides us, as Realtors®, with access to incredible tools, resources, training, advocacy and opportunities. As you continue to grow your business and improve your professionalism, I would like to encourage you to consider utilizing a couple of the tremendous benefits available to us. 1.

Education:

OSCAR has worked diligently to ensure our members are the most informed, prepared and engaged real estate professionals in Central Florida. We have brought top-notch classes and programs to our membership and have been able to do so at steeply discounted prices. Aside from the myriad of classes offered throughout the year (at no additional cost to our members), we have delivered Land 101, an Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation course offered by the Realtor® Land Institute (RLI), Short Sale and Foreclosure Certification (SFR) courses, partnered to bring Graduate, Realtor® Institute (GRI) courses, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) courses and are now offering, for the first time, Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers (CRB) courses. If growth, knowledge and development are what you seek – look no further… • 2.

Please view the Education Calendar on our website (www.OsceolaRealtors.org ) and register for upcoming educational and professional development offerings.

Networking and Industry Expertise:

Living and working in Central Florida enables us to participate in local, state and national networking and Realtor® conference opportunities at unprecedented savings. Unlike our peers throughout the state, and around the nation, many of our professional conferences are held in our own backyard. In fact, the FloridaRealtors® Convention and Trade Show will be held only moments away from OSCAR at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, August 24th – 28th. I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to join myself and members of our leadership team at the convention and trade show this August. Whether you are looking for the newest technology in our industry, want to network with Realtors® from around the state, or are looking for increased knowledge and training the Florida Realtors® Convention and Trade Show is the place to be. •

Please visit the FloridaRealtors® website (www.convention.floridarealtors.org) to register and then stop by the OSCAR Hospitality Suite at the convention to network and mingle with your fellow Osceola Realtors®.

As you can imagine, I could fill many more pages with the value we receive and the opportunities afforded to us as OSCAR members, but I will leave you with this: Every OSCAR member has more than $11,000.00 of benefits and services provided to them each year; how many are you taking advantage of to ensure you are one of the best real estate professionals in Central Florida? I hope to see you soon! Sincerely,

Tim Weisheyer President

Technology Can It Hurt Your Business? by Kemp Howland, GRI, SFR OSCAR Technology Committee During the last few years there has been huge emphasis on the utilization of technology by Realtors® and real estate companies. As an industry, we have been encouraged to adopt web sites, internet branding, search engine optimization, track-backs, e-Blasts, and list servers. We have created auto-responders, internet forms, custom MLS searches, visual tours and email-based drip campaigns. Most Realtors® are now more technically savvy than any previous generation of real estate professionals. The question we need to answer is this: Are we seeing our revenues and net incomes increase as a result of our technical expertise? In a very informal survey (mostly just asking Realtors® we meet on a day-to-day basis) we learned that virtually none of the people we asked could report higher earnings as a direct result of technology. It is no news to most of us that we spend a great deal of our income improving our personal and business technology. Not a day goes by without some new technological breakthrough designed to help us create prospects, manage customers, have more free time, work less and earn more. To quote Dr. Phil: “How’s that working for you?” Did your commissions increase when you got the new Smart Phone? Did you meet significantly more or betterqualified buyers when you improved your website? Can you realistically expect to earn more by spending more on technology? If every Realtor® in our association contracts to purchase a web site and signs a one-year contract at $49 per month, that means we (the members of this association) spend over $800,000 a year on web sites. If every Realtor® in our association buys a smartphone for $200 and signs a one-year cell phone contract at $75 per month that equals $1,650,000 spent by our members on cell phones. This is not to suggest that these are not good products, and that there is no benefit from employing them in our businesses. But we need to put our expenses into perspective. It is important to consider the return on our investment in technology. We spend an inordinate amount of our income on

technology. In the twelve months ending on May 13, 2011, there were 6,896 properties sold in Osceola County, according to the MLS. If we have 1,500 members in our association, each member averaged just over 4.5 sales in the past 12 months. The average sale price of the properties sold was $114,226, which means the average commissionable sale per member was $525,134. Although we cannot discuss commissions, it is easy to calculate that the average member spent nearly 22% of their gross commission income on just two technology items: cell phone and web site. When you figure in the other costs associated with being a Realtor®: MLS dues, association dues, personal computer, printer and ink, postage, auto expenses, insurance, advertising, etc., it is clear that technology represents an inordinately high percentage of the cost of being a Realtor®. The financial disadvantage of unbridled technology is not the biggest problem. The real estate business, by its very nature, is a business of personal interaction. The most successful Realtors®, the ones who are making the most money in this market, are those who develop and nurture personal relationships with their buyers and sellers. Not surprisingly, these Realtors® are the same ones who were making great money when times were good. The one constant is their ability to create and maintain remarkable personal relationships with their customers. It makes no difference if the customer is an asset manager or a firsttime buyer. To paraphrase former U.S. President Bill Clinton, “It’s the relationship, stupid!” Technology tends to widen the gap between the Realtor® and his/her customer. It is almost too convenient to send an email. The MLS helps us create great reports, custom designed for each customer. Visual tours allow us to show listings to prospects without the need to actually talk to them. In many instances, we tend to let the technology take over where we should be doing the real work. My first real estate coach told me “The real estate business is a contact sport.” Associates should expect to make contact with customers, preferably in person, but by phone if necessary. Buyer interviews conducted in person, in the office, give the Realtor® an opportunity to not only build the foundation of a relationship, but also to assess the

Ju


buyers’ wants, needs and ability to buy. Personal meetings with prospective buyers can never be replaced with email. Buyers can easily understand the benefits of exclusive buyer representation if the Realtor® goes over those benefits in person. The same is true for sellers. Although the current market requires sellers to become attuned to reality in terms of pricing their properties in accordance with market value, no email; no text message; no phone call can convey your empathy for the seller. Understanding your sellers’ needs is easy to do from afar. Showing the seller how much you care about their individual situation can only be done in person.

the customer. They can see that you care about their needs. They can ask questions about the information; questions you can turn into selling points. At the same time, you can assess their sincerity, ability and commitment, based on the personal interaction, body language and degree of anxiety you observe.

Are we sometimes guilty of letting the technology do the hard work? Do we ask buyers to use an on-line service to get qualified for a mortgage? Do we send statistics to sellers and then ask them (in an email) if they will be able to sell based on the market prices we sent them? Do we send links to visual tours when we should be insisting on showing the property in person?

The message is this: successful Realtors® develop relationships with buyers and sellers, and then employ technology to strengthen and support those relationships. Customers need personal interaction in order to appreciate our value and feel a sense of loyalty and obligation to us.

If technology is interfering with your opportunity to meet your customer in person, then you should rethink how you are using that technology. The independent use of technology to a point is cold and impersonal. A prospective buyer or seller can dismiss both you and your statistical reports with no remorse. After all, they have never met you; they have no relationship with you; they don’t know if you are a capable business person or a hack. With the click of the mouse they can block you and your information. A personal meeting with the buyer or seller can add enormous value to the information you have for

une

July/August 2011

Clearly technology has its place in the practice of real estate. But technology can quickly deteriorate from being a wonderful supplemental tool used to reinforce our claims and prove our arguments, to a substitute for much needed personal service.

Use technology to attract prospects. Arrange in-person meetings with your potential buyers and sellers. When you and they each understand what the other requires, the chances of a successful transaction increase geometrically. First create meaningful customer relationships, and then support those relationships with technology. Realtors® who establish lasting personal relationships with their customers enjoy repeat business and referrals. Realtors® who employ technology in lieu of direct, personal interaction tend to wonder where their next customer (and commission) will come from. How you employ technology in your practice of real estate can determine your success in this business. Choose wisely. ■

The Osceola County Association of REALTORS® congratulates our successful REALTOR® and Affiliate Members! Thank you for letting us share in your success! REPRINTED FROM OSCEOLA GAZETTE HOMEFINDER, JUNE 9, 2011

Ackley Realty captures region sales honors Riding the crest of one of one of its best year’s to date with more than $170 million in Central Florida property sales, Coldwell Banker Ackley Ackley Realty earned top state and regional honors for 2010 sales production. Ackley Realty was recognized by Coldwell Banker as the No. 1 Florida affiliate in its category (51 to 100 agents) for Adjusted Gross Income and as the top-ranked affiliate in the 14-state Southern Region for both Listings and Units sold, Coldwell Banker President & CEO Jim Gillespie stated in a press release. The Kissimmee-based company, which is headquartered in the Loop off John Young Parkway, closed a total of 1,400 units in 2010, including 875 Listing Units, representing approximately $170 million in overall sales transactions, Ackley President and COO Rajia Ackley, said. Those numbers vaulted Ackley Realty to No. 1 in the Southern Region, which includes nearly 800 offices from Florida, Georgia, Texas and the Carolinas, as well as nine other states. According to Ackley, the lion’s share of the company sales activity was once again generated from REO/ foreclosures, accounting for better than two-thirds of its 2010 sales numbers, with the balance coming from traditional sales and short sales. The company’s 2010 performance once more grabbed the attention of Coldwell Banker at the highest level.

The Coldwell Banker Ackley Realty office on Monument Avenue in Kissimmee is just one location that helped it earn top state and regional honors for 2010 sales production.

“An accomplishment of this magnitude clearly distinguishes Coldwell Banker Ackley Realty as a shining example of dedication and exceptional performance,” said Gillespie in acknowledging the company’s performance. “The company has gone above and beyond its sales and goals and it’s a great honor to have such a committed and focused company in the Coldwell Banker family. Its achievement is one of great honor and should be honored and respected by all.” Ackley, who started the company in 1984, was quick to single out her agents for contributing to the company’s success during one of the worst periods for the industry. A number of them were recognized by Coldwell Banker for sales excellence in 2010, including: • International President’s Premier Membership (sales in excess of $10 million) – Doroth Buse and Peter Macera. • International President’s Circle (sales in excess of $4 million) –

Dominico Pagan, David Plasencia and Rajia Ackley. • International Diamond Society (sales in excess of $2.5 million) – Marion McKenzie, Jeanine Madden and Dave Couture. • International Sterling Society (sales in excess of $2 million) – John Guelde. In addition, several agents from Ackley Realty were recognized for their quarterly sales contributions in 2010, including Buse, who ranked as the No. 1 Coldwell Banker agent nationally in Adjusted Gross Commission Income, Listings and Total Units Sold. She finished the year with $45 million in total sales volume, representing 538 closed residential units. “Ackley Realty would not have enjoyed the year that it did without the commitment of so many dedicated agents who exceeded expectations in what has been a very difficult real estate market,” Ackley said. “They deserve all the attention and recognition they are getting.”

If you are “in the news” or spot any of your fellow REALTORS® “in the news”, either on a professional or personal basis, please let us know. Your success motivates others and, in the words of Nick Nichols “it’s important to share with your fellow REALTORS®”!

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

Learn about Cultures, Nationalities & Religions and grow your International Business by Imran Mohamed Co-chair of the International Alliance Committee imrobin@earthlink.net In the June article I talked about the international demand for Central Florida real estate and the opportunities that exist for expanding your business strategy. Once you’ve made the decision to capture a share of this market, you will need to get proficient in a variety of things. Success will not happen overnight, but don’t get discouraged; the trick is to have a strategy for growth and development (a road map to success) and tweak it as you enter into real situations and get your own experiences. You will need to assimilate, have solid market knowledge, know how things operate and be able to recommend services such as: Property Management (long & short term), Property Insurance Companies, Foreign National Lenders, Money Transfer Services, etc. You will also need to have a good understanding of the types of Immigration Visas, Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRTPA), Inheritance tax (estate tax), etc. Remember, never overstep the bounds of license, and stay clear of giving legal or financial advice. This month we will explore an area that can be easily overlooked and which may end up costing you a deal. You will need to get familiar with the customs and habits of various Nationalities, Cultures and Religions. Just think of the importance of this…once you can transcend these boundaries and build a rapport with the customers they will feel relaxed, appreciated and will inevitable relate with you on a more personal level. It’s much easier to do business with someone they feel comfortable with. Okay! you say, I will learn about Brazil, Russia, India, China, yes those BRIC countries with huge economic growth; but don’t get stereo typed; keep in mind that the majority of international clients in Central Florida come from the United Kingdom & Canada. They too are from unique cultures & background… remember the Irish, the Welsh, the Scotts, and the descendants of people from across the world that have made U.K & Canada their homes. So don’t forget to learn about Canada and England. In addition, America is made up of a diverse group of people so you can use this knowledge to help you work better with Americans of various backgrounds. (Customers and those you may come in contact with in your daily life).

and it is sufficient for you to show that you have a general understanding and appreciation of their diversity. You do not necessarily have to agree with their customs, religious teachings, etc but you must respect it. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, increase you own knowledge and give them the opportunity to vent and express themselves. It just may be that no one has ever asked them these things in their life and you have given them that opportunity. Remember, goofing can be embarrassing and you will meet situations that are absolute strange. Don’t be afraid to apologize and own up to your ignorance, they will understand. For example, I had one customer who absolutely took me by surprise, I just never heard about this before. The customer wanted to purchase a property but for religious reasons the number of the house had to add up to 1 (number one). So if the house number was 8002 the 8 + 0+ 0 +2 = 10 and the 1+0 = 1, this was considered to be a good buy. Now try fitting this parameter within all the others, like price range, location, etc. If you goof on the big ticket items like the major religious customs, well known cultural habits, etc, chances are they will think that you are not experienced in dealing with international buyers and their confidence level may drop. Keep in mind that “You are a professional” and professionals rarely goof. “Variety is the spice of life” how dull and boring the world would have been if we were all the same. Alfred, Lord Tennyson once said “I am a part of all that I have met” and you will certainly benefit from your diverse experiences as you present yourself in a form suitable to the relationship you would like to achieve. ■ Please send your experiences to info@flhomeinone.com and I will post it on future articles. Here are some useful links http://www.cyborlink.com/ http://www.realtor.org/library/library/fg225 http://www.kwintessential.co.uk/resources/countryprofiles.html

You don’t need to become an expert in their cultures, religions, etc; they don’t expect you to. They are the experts
