Text messaging etiquette for real estate marketing.


I don’t like texting. It’s not the practice of sending a text message that I don’t like. It’s the fact that “text” has become a verb. It’s in the Oxford Dictionary now.

Sending a text has become such a convenient way to communicate. Everyone does it. In fact, it’s now the primary source of communication between my Mom and me. Don’t get me wrong … we still talk a couple of times a week, but we text every day. She said she’d never do it, but I get a text every day about something, which is cool.

It’s just incredibly easy to send a quick message via text. And that is precisely why it can present a challenge for anyone in a professional setting. It is probably the most casual means of communication. Out of habit, we now text and we sometimes forget the standards of communication – like grammar and punctuation. There is a limited number of characters available in a text, and for that reason, many people abbreviate.

Is texting in a professional setting inevitable? Probably. If you must do it, use discretion. Serious topics should not be covered in a text. Meeting times should not be changed via text. Anything which could escalate emotionally or is in any way confrontational should not be sent in a text.

Some of the funniest things posted on Facebook involve unfortunate text messages. They are either sent to the wrong person or autocorrect rears its ugly head. If you are texting someone, make sure you are giving the conversation your full attention and not making them wait while you are communicating with someone else.

Don’t use an emoticon in a text to a client. If you wouldn’t put it in an email, don’t use it in a text. And for Pete’s sake, don’t LOL. Ever. Coming from a professional, that is highly annoying to most people.


The most important thing to remember is that the quality of your messages reflect upon your business, your credibility, professionalism and tech savvy. No matter who you’re communicating with, don’t hit send without a quick check for spelling and grammar.

The only time I would advise a REALTOR® to text a client is if they’re running late on the way to a meeting with that client. Otherwise, send an email. You can always go “old school” and use your phone to call the client. An actual call might be the best choice for good relationship marketing, because it makes a client feel like they are your priority – not just an afterthought.

The knockout punch REALTORS® don’t see coming.


Fifteen years ago the idea of purchasing a home without a REALTOR® was unthinkable, let alone undoable. You needed a real estate agent just to have access to the homes that were listed in your area. That has obviously changed — it’s no secret that the majority of home searches start online. Today, a client could show up to a home knowing more about it than the REALTOR® representing them. The Internet has already grounded travel agents, shredded year books, and taken some of the swagger out of car dealers. With all these “middle men” going the way of dinosaurs, what does the increase in Internet usage mean for the REALTOR®?

Recently, I began the process of interviewing REALTORS® to help me with the purchase of my first home. This experience has been quite an eye-opener. Every REALTOR® has been quick to tell me why they are clearly the best REALTOR® for me. Whether it’s the large volume of homes they helped close last year, their winning smile and customer care, or simply that they won’t rest until they find me the home of my dreams. Yet they are all still missing out on the biggest question...

Why do I EVEN need a REALTOR®?

Don’t kid yourself by thinking that people aren’t starting to ask themselves that very question. I believe we can all agree it’s something that has been brewing in our age of optimization and small, agile work flows.

If I’m starting to sound condescending, or like I’m making fun of the REALTORS® with whom I’ve been working, that’s not my intention. What I’m trying to do is serve as a wakeup call. Sometimes we get so focused on our “daily grind” that we completely miss the 10-ton elephant in the room … even when he’s charging right at us. I know I’ve done it. There have been plenty of sales calls where I immediately jump in and start talking about paper poundage, ultraviolet coating and print quality, and forget to ask if the person even needs or wants business cards! We spend so much time in our marketing trying to tell prospects why they should choose us. Yet, we hardly spend any time at all asking ourselves why they even need our services.

Let’s face it, you don’t NEED a REALTOR® to buy or sell a home. If a person decided not to use a REALTOR®, they’d have to be a braver (or more foolish) man than I. Chances are, your prospect has gotten along so far in their life without you, (or me for that matter.) The status quo can really be the biggest hurdle we have to jump, yet it is probably the one we prepare for the least. So, now is the perfect time to change that. 

Recently I was invited to a Bellator Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fight. After the event, as I was talking to one of the judges, he said something about “knock-outs” that really stuck with me. He said, “The first thing every fighter asks after he recovers is, “What happened?” It’s always the ones we don’t see coming that put us down.”

I challenge you to take this opportunity to make sure your “pitch” includes the following three things:

1) Explain to the prospect why they WANT to do business with you. Make sure you’re focusing on their wants, not needs. We’ve established that the prospect doesn’t need you, or any REALTOR®, for that matter. That’s a good thing, because people get more excited about things they want, especially when they’re emotionally invested. Play to their emotions by calming their fears and overcoming their objections. Just as it is with a lawyer … you don’t ever need one, (you can represent yourself in court,) but you definitely WANT one!

2) Keep the prospect at the center of everything you do. For many of you, this is just a reminder of something you already know. However, it is very much worth repeating. In 2012, even though 42% of home buyers say they found their home online, 89% still used a real estate professional. This means that public opinion is very much in support of REALTORS®. We want to keep it that way. If public opinion ever swings the other way, and REALTORS® fall out of favor with the public, we’re all out of a job. So, don’t simply stop with what you can do for a prospective client, but focus on WHY they want a REALTOR® helping them in the home buying or selling process.

3) Be a consultant not a salesperson. What’s the difference between salespeople and consultants? Salespeople are “yes men,” they never say no and will tell you just about anything to close a deal. Just think of the stigma of the “used-car salesman” — we don’t want that stigma attached to REALTORS®. Consultants are trusted advisors who care about quality service and their reputation more than the current “deal.” This might sound backwards, but your client wants your expertise. Expertise and service are the only things you have to offer, without them, you’re sunk. Your clients don’t want to be sold a home, they want to buy a home. Meet client expectations whenever possible, but be realistic. Don’t be afraid of telling a client what they may not want to hear, even if it leads to some friction. In the end, when your expertise has led to a better outcome for them, they’ll thank you … or they may not. Either way, your reputation will remain intact, which is crucial to your business.

Habits of the Most Productive Real Estate Agents


Take a look around the office, and choose two or three people who you know are successful. What makes them produce at that level?

Chances are good that the REATLTORS® you admire share a few common habits that you can adopt for yourself. Even if you’re a seasoned pro, there are some things that people do differently that you can adopt for yourself to make you more efficient, more productive and a better agent.

Here are some habits of highly effective REALTORS®:

They manage their time well 
With all a REALTOR® has to accomplish, getting through a busy day is a marathon with a few sprints thrown in. Time management is vital.

They respond quickly 
The cliché is that, “the early bird gets the worm.” Because real estate is a relationship business, REALTORS®, as a rule, have to be available to their clients when the clients need them. Phone calls, emails and texts are returned quickly and questions answered thoroughly.

They are transparent 
Any real estate agent worth their salt lets the client know what is going on every step of the way. A buyer or seller should know at any time during the process exactly what is happening and why. If you’re using social media marketing for real estate, they should know what you’re doing and what the expected outcomes are.

They do the little things well

Part of becoming an outstanding agent is looking at the big picture when it comes to their job. Yes, they do the big things well, but doing the little things, like remembering people’s birthdays and sending thank you postcards is part of their brand.

They know when they’re most productive 
Being a real estate agent is one of those jobs you don’t just turn off. You get phone calls at all hours, from colleagues and clients alike. If you’re an early bird, use that time to be productive with paperwork and research. If you’re a night owl, use that time. By the way, what’s the bird reference for the people who say they’re most productive right after lunch? I really should come up with a name for those people — hummingbirds?

They take time for themselves every day 
Going to the gym or doing something they enjoy, and just getting away for half an hour allows the brain to recharge. This in turn helps focus, maintains energy and increases efficiency.

They constantly learn and try new things 
Continuing education is essential. So is learning all you can about your community. Finding and trying new techniques to generate real estate leads is essential to staying competitive. Stepping outside their comfort zone is the norm, not the exception.

Of course, there are more habits of highly effective REALTORS®. What do you think is most important to an agent’s success?

Communicating Effectively Starts with Listening


As a REALTOR®, communication is a very important skill that will determine the level of your success. From your initial meeting to closing, how you communicate with clients and colleagues alike is vital. And we’re not just talking about how you speak; how you listen is probably more important.

One of the things taught in most interpersonal communication classes is that the best communicators are the best listeners. As you sit with your clients to discuss what they’re looking for in a new home, there are steps you can take to ensure that their needs are being met.

Avoid ambiguity

If the client says something vague, make sure to follow up with questions to nail them down. You don’t want to get further into the process only to discover that they want a swimming pool.

Don’t multitask

Everybody’s busy, but if you’re trying to answer an email while a client is on the phone, you increase the chances of missing something important.

Find a quiet place

We’re not saying “Don’t take a client to a lunch or dinner meeting.” We are suggesting that you find a quiet place to discuss things. If you’re meeting in a public place, make sure that it’s one where you can hear what they are saying.

Take notes

Some people are afraid to do this during a professional conversation. Don’t be! Taking some notes ensures that you won’t be guessing in the later stages.

Analyze non-verbal communication

A facial expression, crossed arms or a cock of the head can sometimes tell you more than what they’re actually saying. This is especially effective while negotiating with the selling agent.

Being a good communicator is essential for success in any business, but especially as a REALTOR®. You’ll find as you work on your listening skills, you’ll become more effective for your clients.

We listen, too! We’d love to hear your feedback about how to communicate more effectively with clients.
