Key Quotes

Farming is a process that takes about 18 months to really start paying off. -Matt Johnson

Getting a winning offer comes down to building trust so that a client believes in what you say. In farming, you do this by showing community knowledge and expertise. You make that even more successful in a high turnover location that doesn’t have a dominant agent or team. Most importantly, you must like the area so your interest, passion and knowledge oozes in your communication.
