In 2020 we’ve had to EVOLVE and fast. Pivoting became the new ‘trending’ word and we’ve upgraded the way we operate businesses. But… Historically real estate has been an industry of late adaption.
You can’t sell a secret – just ask a real estate agent how hard it is to sell a property when no one knows it is for sale. As well as exposing the property to the widest possible range of buyers, marketing also creates desire and competition and those two factors will set the foundation for a successful sale. So, if marketing is so important, why do sellers struggle to see the benefit? Or is it that they just see it as a cost – not an investment – a cost they can’t afford. Imagine being able to commit to a property marketing campaign that will deliver the best result without having to put your hands in your pocket upfront.

And I have to ask if you are tired now, how are you going to have the energy to gear up when the market starts coming back?

In order for your clients to completely trust in your vision you need to confidently share with them what you truly believe. Help answer questions and minimise as much uncertainty as possible in order to build a trusting relationship moving forward.

For most small businesses, and even some big ones, growth is the main objective. Personally, I love that as a goal. It’s a goal worth pursuing and the journey towards it is exciting. If there is room to grow, why not go for it? Challenge yourself. Let your genius work.

With that said, planning on upscaling your company is completely different from actually executing it. You will encounter issues that if are not dealt with will cause your business to suffer.
