Thanks everyone for the insight, I am new to RE Sales and I am still in school and looking to start off running wheels down.

I am new to the RE game but not to sales, in my experience the keys to the success of any sales person is being genuine. Connect to those you can, do not spend too much time on those who won't budge and most of all remember, people do business with people they LIKE!

Hey Little John,

Looks like you have gone full circle. Your original plan
was to door knock a area of 6000 homes, then you got lost
in the woods I suspect due to Lucky. It's okay to blame
Lucky, I do the same thing.

With the warmer weather finally here I'm planning to head
out this comming week. I dont have the balls to door knock
in the evening, mornings feel safer for me.

Bill's advice sounds solid, I have no idea how a person can
work from 9 - 5 in a different field and then start up their
real estate business in the evening. This business is a lot of
work and requires a lot of focused solid hours of work for results to be forthcoming. Plus i dont think a agent would really be "tuned in" to what is going on if he is not in the
trenches all day long. Sellers arent stupid and they can tell
it you are dialed in on your game or not.

We all want to see you beat Lucky.

Have 3 solid seller leads and 1 buyer lead from someone whos lease ends June 31st and has to stay in the same elementary school. The 50 contacts to leads ratio is panning out to be correct. I knock from 5:45 to 7:30 and do 15-20 contacts a night.

You are getting good results and some healthy exercise. What does Bill want you to do between 9am and 5pm?

I thought I would reactivate this thread when I noticed the title while surfing. The reason is a new agent, the husband of one of my doctors office workers was in the waiting room when someone asked me a real estate question. I am currently in a state unlicensed while getting medical care from some real doctors, the doctors at UCSF tried to kill me twice and I am not going to give them another chance.

Anyway I told him door knocking and he turned green and lost interest, but I gave him my number and said we should have breakfast while I give him a free beginning course.He put the card in his pocket instead of the waste basket that he was glancing at.

About a month later he called after his wife chewed him out and said he was an idiot. He said his broker had told him I was a century out of date, i didn't know his market, and the fuller brush man was run out of business a long time ago. I just said would you like to have my bank account, or yours, or your brokers. He said his brokers, I said then do what he wants you to do and do as he does.

Just because I moved to a new state doesn't mean I quit real estate, I was an investor before I was a broker, and guess who showed up at a property I rehabbed to try for a listing.

He asked how I found the property and I told him the same way all us old dinosaurs do, door knocking. I will clear on this one deal what your hoping to earn all next year, how much did your brokers instructions make you? He said he could have made three times as much flipping burgers. He gets lesson one next week. Which is don't sneer at door knocking, Internet or not.

The more things change the more they stay the same, I
enjoyed your story thank you.

I hope your new treatment is getting you stronger, not
having your health is real tough and no fun at all regardless
of how many homes you have sold.

I was browing through your site and I notice that the first question you ask when people open the door is "When are you folks planning to move?". So you actually use this? I find that a bit aggressive, and not sure it would work for me. i wouldn't be comfortable asking.

What do others say when they knowck on the door?
