Door knocking here is now illegal, unless you purchase a pricey permit to do so. I don't know of any Realtors in the area who have done that.

As well, cold calling here is passe.

Both were great ways to drum up business 15 years ago. But not now.

Many of our buyers & sellers are members of the military community and they do shop online, at least until they select an agent.

I think it has more to do with privacy, security, and freedom for the resident than anything else. wink

I used to go door-to-door at one time. I just never really had luck with it and I door knocked thousands of door over my career.

I generated one listing out of it, but tons of leads.

My best advice with door knocking is to always have some type of "soft" opening. Like an invitation to an open house. Never ask someone if they are interested in selling first thing after your intro, unless you like people calling the cops on you....

Here is a script from my blog if anybody is really interested:

Not everything work for all. Door knocking works for people who know how to "sell". You will hear a lot of objection/rejections and after a while, it might make you feel down. Keep your hopes up and learn some door knocking best practices. if you know what to say when they open the door, how to handle objection, how to attract attention so that they listen to you for a minute, then door knocking works like charm.

I had agents knocking my door and as I opened, first line I heard was, I'm so and so and looking to see if you are moving or selling your house! If I said NO, they would turn around a go away smile Thats not how to door knock.
