Rental Beast compiled the best advice for real estate agents in 2019 from our in-house experts. Use these tips to guarantee a successful 2019.
- Develop a comprehensive outreach plan to stay in touch with your clients. Email drip campaigns, real estate updates, and holiday and birthday postcards. Take it an extra step and track your outreach with market statistics. Find what works and keep doing it.
- Respond to your leads as fast as possible. Simple, yes. But this will pay dividends throughout 2019 and beyond. Every lead is a chance to make money, create referrals, and build your personal brand. Responding within minutes shows your dedication to the client, and your willingness to help them find their next home.
- Develop a niche, and become an area expert. Choose an up and coming area and learn everything you can about it. You can use the Rental Beast database to connect with landlords, find average rents, and check inventory numbers. Be the go to agent!
- Client preparation. Preparing your client is a crucial part of the real estate process, so creating a plan, a way to serve every client to the best of your abilities will play dividends in 2019. Make sure they are bringing their ID and checkbook, completed application, everything they need to sign a lease. And preparing yourself for the showing, knowing exactly how to get to the rental and clear communication with the landlord.
