Here are a few examples:

Personal Branding is essentially a snapshot of your awesomeness. Your statement has to be strong, descriptive, short and catchy at the same time.

Use Your Testimonials to gain more leads through ERA Grizzard

Testimonials are a key factor when individuals are looking for which Realtor® to choose! Featuring happy testimonials from clients can be a key factor when someone is deciding between businesses. Whenever you have a positive experience with a client always make sure to get a testimonial to build your book of business. It's essential to use Search Engine Profiles (google business profile, yelp, yahoo, bing, etc.) with recent and complete testimonials. Also, consider giving some free swag or a gift card if you're having trouble soliciting reviews and testimonials.

6. Create Home Needed Announcements

Create Home Needed Posts to gain more leads in Real Estate in Central Florida

Direct mail isn't as quick as sending an email and it's not as easy. But if you have a few frustrated buyers that can't find a home on the market, creating a “Hot Buyer” letter is worth it.


The strategy is simple:

  • Write a letter to homeowners who live in the neighborhoods where your buyers are looking to live.
  • Create a social post to share on your page.
  • Create an email campaign and send to your sphere.
  • Be specific in describing who your buyers are and what they're looking for.
  • Encourage these homeowners to contact you if they're interested in selling. 

7. Work Older Expired Listings

Work older expired's to gain more leads with ERA Grizzard Real Estate

When a listing expires in the MLS, the seller receives dozens of calls from agents looking to re-list the home. This can be overwhelming to sellers.

  • Most agents stop calling if the seller does not re-list the home within a few weeks. By then end of six months, the calls are nonexistent.
  • This creates an opportunity for agents willing to do a little homework, because even if the home didn’t sell for whatever reasons, odds are the value has increased dramatically.
  • Search for listings that expired six to 24 months ago... search tax records and MLS to make sure the home was not re-listed or sold since it expired.
Then make a simple call with a script similar to this:

Hi, Mr. or Mrs. Seller, this is (agent name) with ERA Real Estate. I saw you had your house for sale last year, and I was calling to see if you still plan to sell it at some point in the future.”

8. Deliver Ninja Value 

Deliver Ninja Value to gain more leads

Give, give, give…then, sell. The Ninja Selling system is based on the philosophy of building relationships, listening to the customer, and helping them achieve their goals. It is less about selling and more about how to create value for people. 

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Host Workshops, Seminars, or Webinars
  • Offer Downloadable Guides
  • Create Personalized Market Analysis Videos 
    PRO TIP: Save time and pull stats our monthly Market Update blogs (like this one)
