If the announcements made at Family Reunion are any indication, 2015 is already shaping up to be an amazing year of growth and change for Keller Williams.
Two huge announcements were made at Family Reunion that are changing the core and foundation of the entire organization and its associates...
When buyers start making those hefty lists of what they are looking for in their “dream home”, one that you almost always see is the word “community”. Every real estate agent knows that location and subdivisions are important, but the differences between these terms and “community” could not be bigger. A location is somewhere you park your car at night, but a community is a lifestyle and a sense of belonging. Learning how to sell the community along with the home is a surefire way to ensure complete satisfaction for your clients.
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that real estate is a people business. Long lasting relationships are the core of any good real estate agent’s business. According to The National Associate on Realtors® 2014 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers report, over 40% of buyers found their agent through a referral and 12% used an agent they had used before to buy or sell a home. Which, when you add the numbers up, means more than half of all real estate transactions last year were referral based.
With the New Year just around the corner, it’s hard to believe that it’s almost time for Family Reunion 2015! Each year, thousands of Keller Williams agents and associates flock to a different location to mingle, learn and celebrate with their Keller Williams family. This year, the event will be held in Orlando, Florida on February 7th-11th and promises to be bigger than ever.
We have all been there. That quick vibration that sounds like an earthquake on our nightstand and startles us from our beauty sleep. Who is texting you before the birds are even awake? It’s your newest potential buyer, the early bird, and he’s looking for a response.
