Proof You Shouldn’t Let Go When A Lead Says “We’re Not Planning On Selling.” (16:15)
Federico shares a success story! He followed Chad’s advice and got his foot in the door with a personal representative who initially said they weren’t planning on selling the property. All he had to do was refer them to a few vendors (who might now feel a sense of reciprocity about those referrals!). After some time passed, the personal representative called Fed and said she was done – She wanted help selling or leasing the property and she couldn’t think of anyone better for the task than Fed. This underscores not just the importance of follow-up, but the impact of leading with value first.
