Referrals are going to be one of your best choices to get more listings. Check back in with people you have sold to in the past and hand them a stack of business cards. Ask them to pass your name along to their family and friends and share their great experience in finding their perfect home with you. Expanding your search through past clients is a great way to add credibility to your work – they know you best.

Leave your face on their front door. Our doorhangers are an excellent tool to introduce yourself to the new neighborhood and show them who the local expert is.
