Hello. I'm new to the biz. I don't have a "sphere of influence" to tap into.

I was wondering if I can become a top producer by only cold calling?

I'm not a big fan of door knocking.

What do you guys think? I don't mind pounding the phones all day either.

If you can cold call then you can have all the business you want.

look around youtube, a number of people share their experience, and for sure top producers use mojo and cold call as a bulk of their business.
it's great especially if you speak fluently

The thing is I don't know many people or have much family in the area and starting with low funds.

I'd simply be cold calling until things got rolling.

Even if you did . . . . you start talking Real Estate every time you're in their company and they'd soon dis-own you any !

Cold calling is simply a way to create relationships where none existed before. You should also Door knock and participate in group activities as well.

The more people you develop a good relationship with that know what you do can bring business to you.

Cold calling is a good start. If you would rather call than door knock that is okay. However you can develop relationships.


Damn! It was so much easier when we were younger and we would just ask people if they wanted to be our friend.

Whatever you decide to do.. do it consistently and become a fanatic about followup.

when i started out, i thought the same- oh no what am i going to do, i have no family and hardly any friends in los angeles.
cold call is all you can do to get things rolling fast.

I was getting an earful- sphere of influence, floor time, mailing letters, etc... were all slow methods or time wasters.
actively Talking to people is the only way to generate fast leads.

Only cold calling can't give you the full feedback but you can have a website, which will reflect your business. Website is like face of the business nowadays.
Cold calls rise awareness about specific business entity and website is like a platform to polish that awareness and convert it to leads and sales.

Jasmor, how many appointments do you have to make to get 12-14 listings? Any tips on cold call scripts when reaching out in a cold call?

What about your "presentation" when you get there? As I'm sure many sellers are probably weary of the sales process at this point.

I ask as a future agent myself. Am in process now of scheduling the test for my license.

Cold calling is a great way to get business, but you need to be a fluent speaker.
