I was in the business 15 years ago, but when all the listings dried up I had no money left in the bank to stay in the business. I did do some prospecting but I didn't stick with it i.e I didn't do it everyday.ve

If I had it to do over again..I would take the advice from Mike Ferry and start everyday with a plan. For example, I would door knock on Tuesday, Saturday & Sunday from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm..people are normally home on the weekends.

Monday I would preview property on vacant homes that are on a lock box. Wednesday I would work in the office and take floor time, that would leave me with Thursday and Friday as my days off.

With the prospecting I need to contact 100 people i.e I need to hear 99 " no's " for every " yes " I get.

Well, that's the plan. I want to work with sellers as opposed to buyers. What do you think ? Is it realistic ? Do I need to prospect more than three days a week ?

Any advice you can share would be helpful. TIA.

Logan,

Also, can I door knock if I don't have a real estate license yet..and give those leads to another agent and split the listing commission ?

Nobody door knocks in my location, just the religious people JW's.

I am wanting to get back into the business and door knock again.

Logan,

Logan,
In my state the regulations prohibit a licensed agent from giving anything over $25 to a non licensed person in regards to a RE transaction.
Your laws may differ.

That sounds like you'd be willing to impersonate a Licensee . . . . not likely to get you off on the right foot !

And as your fellow Licensees catch wind of your willingness to do this, you will find that it follows you for a long time. That's NOT the kind of reputation, or 1st Impression you want to create in your home territory.

Get that License re-instated first . . . . if you had a License 15 years ago, you already know this. The Law hasn't changed in the past 15 years.

When are you scheduled to sit for your Real Estate Exam(s) ?

Waao! Door knocking 7 hours straight? I don't see anyone being able to continue after 2-3 hours. People usually start feeling disoriented after 2-3 hours of walking, door knocking and talking.

Logan,


How would you identify yourself when you DO talk to a homeowner? In my province, bird dog fee is not allowed. What you will be doing in unlicensed practice which is not allowed
