Takeaways + Tactics
It’s important to visualize success and go over scenarios in your head with role playing so that when it comes to the crunch you will be ready.
Follow up with people by using postcards and phone calls over the first 8 weeks, it will take that long to put you in their mind.
Gifts can be great in follow ups and listing presentations, but try and personalize it to the person by doing some research on their interests on their Facebook or LinkedIn page.
We began this episode by answering a question about how to deal with a client who may be annoyed if you sell their house straight away and accuse you of making easy money on them. Next, we discussed how to act when someone has asked for a cold showing and the importance of taking a partner with you if you do not feel comfortable going to the house alone with a client you have never met. Later in the episode we spoke about the perfect follow up plan and compared approaches. We finished up the episode by talking about the importance of positive thinking, visualisation and role playing and how these things can help you in your real estate career.

Role Playing Importance
You can use visualization and role playing to increase your chances of being a successful real estate agent. Role playing is 90% mental, 8% physical and 2% logistical, so if you can conquer the mental side of it and start having authentic arguments with yourself then you will be much better prepared for the real thing. You need to put your ego aside and accept criticism as that is the only way that you will truly grow as a person and as an agent. You must stop worrying about everything going positively as struggles and failure are all part of the natural course to success.
