The real estate industry can feel perilous at times. Competitors rising to the top are getting bigger and better—and some of them, specifically the online services like Zillow and Trulia, pose a threat to way real estate business has always been done.
So, how do single agents and small teams survive?
After asking top agents within our community, we've concluded that surviving in 2019 (and beyond!) requires two things:
First, agents must develop a well-rounded set of skills and knowledge to meet all of their clients' needs. Buying and selling a home is such a huge and emotionally-charged transaction, and clients are always going to need an agent to hold their hand and walk them through the process. Online services and robots are no match for the agent who prioritizes client relations.
And second, but just as important, real estate agents need a powerful CRM with which to automate their processes. This will allow you to jump on leads faster, make sure none of your clients' appointments or deadlines are ever missed, and prevent any of the tiny details of your process from slipping through the cracks.
