Door knocks? Sounds like she uses a phone from her office. 11:50-12 they talk about calling expireds, fsbo's, just listed and solds.

actually, i see she mentioned door knocking towards the end of the interview, but it still sounds like phone prospecting is her bread and butter prospecting activity.

I also found it to be a very interesting thread. Eric mentioned in his first post that his father was very ill. Hopefully, his father is doing better now and Eric is just swamped with new leads. I'm going to keep my eyes on this thread. It is full of great "back to basics" ideas for finding leads.

Hope Eric's father feels better. I've heard many great success stories with regard to door knocking / door hangers!

Does anyone here door knock in a really warm area? I'm in Florida and most days are just plain hot. If so do you dress in normal professional attire (suit, etc.) or do you dress down for the heat?

I'm in Phoenix, but I haven't started door knocking yet. (Soon though!) I have no idea what I'll do since it is well over 100 degrees this time of year.

I don't think people will be to receptive to a sweaty mess knocking on their door :) -- perhaps door knocking activity is best to leave for fall and winter months in our warmer climates? :)

Good recommendation. Still probably a bit on the warm and sweaty side but worth a try for sure!

I have gotten good response when going door to door in this heat. (107) More than one person has invited me in for a glass of ice water. It seems that a nice dress shirt or polo shirt and nice dress pants is good to go in this heat.

I actually find suits or ties a turn off when your at someones home, so I don't think office attire is a barrier remover. So casual dress, but nice, and for gods sake a smile.

I agree in some systems but for sure some are purely garbage just to rip you off.I havre tried using some in Mombasa ,Kenya properties and i have seen good fruits though working hard is paramount.

I stopped door knocking in October of last year.

Heres what I ran into in the South Florida marketplace. I generated a TON of leads... I could get one or two soft leads knocking from 5:30 to 7:30 before daylight savings made me lose a hour of daylight.

I had about 20-30 decent leads in play. But the issue I kept running into is that they were upside down and either were going to ditch the property into forclosure or wanted to rent it in the hopes value would go up...which is different from listing it. The equity issues essentially messed up the process for me.

I still make over a grand a week selling health insurance by phone. It was disappointing... maybe I should have changed my marketing approach. Still have my RE license. If the market were balanced and not renting out homes it would make sense. Did several listing presentations, the owners puked when I gave them current prices vs. what they owed on it mortgage-wise.
