There are a lot of ways to solve objections that come up in appointment. We can handle them with our words, or take care of them way in advance with a book.

Key Quotes

One of the best ways to solve an objection is to destroy it before it even comes up, and a book does that for your credibility. -Matt Johnson

Most Realtors never even write a blog, let alone a book. -Chris Bentley  

For most agents the ideas of writing a book is immensely overwhelming and intimidating because it feels like a major time commitment, but it doesn’t have to be. It can actually boost your credibility in a way other types of content don’t. If you write a book on a subject, people are going to assume that you know a lot about it, and that will make any appointment and listing presentation run so much smoother, and make it more likely that you’ll get that client.
