on May 6, 2019

Let’s say you’ve got a situation where one of your commercial real estate clients or prospects has told you that they have a commercial real estate need, but they’re not responding back to your messages when you’re following-up with them.

The Power of Utilizing Testimonials in Your Commercial Real Estate Agent Listing Presentation Packages

on Apr 22, 2019

Something that’s important to understand when making listing presentations is that you’re constantly being compared to your competitors, so you need to clearly stand out as the best choice your owners could ever make in a commercial real estate agent. With this in mind, utilizing testimonials in your presentation packages from people you’ve already successfully closed transactions with can definitely help you stand out, because people are used to hearing salespeople talk about how great they are, and why they are definitely the best. But reading 10-40 testimonials from your past clients, discussing how great their experience was in working with you, can get your owners to believe that they’ll have this exact same kind of experience with you when they hire you to list and market their property…

Bill Lee: A Tribute to a Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Icon

on Apr 1, 2019

Over the years, very little has been done on a large scale to transform the lives and the income of commercial real estate brokers. But in 1979, Bill Lee had a vision, and he asked himself the following kinds of questions:

  • 1) Since brokers are the ones generating all of the income for commercial real estate brokerage companies, why should they be giving away so much of their money to the company and to outside shareholders?

  • 2) Why is it that brokers need to be paying for big salaries and for the overhead of executives located in smoked-glass office towers hundreds or even thousands of miles away, when the brokers can’t quite understand what these people are even doing to help them to make more money?

  • 3) Can we develop a commercial real estate brokerage company with a prominent national presence, where the profits would go directly back into the pockets of the brokers themselves, and the management and the running of the day-to-day operations of the business would take place 100% at the local level of the individual brokerage office, without needing to follow the mandates of executives who are often located many miles away?

With this in mind, Bill Lee moved forward with his vision, he created the Lee & Associates brand, and the resulting growth of his vision has been quite astounding…

How to Make Sure That You’re Not Wasting Your Time Making Listing Presentations

on Mar 26, 2019

One of the situations that you definitely want to avoid when making listing presentations, is making a presentation when you have zero or very little chance of landing the listing. This can happen when the decision maker has already determined who they’ll be listing with, but they just want to receive some additional listing presentations for their own due diligence. In addition, within the corporate environment, the person may be told by their boss that they should receive 3-4 listing presentations in total along with the broker presentation packages, even though the broker who will get the listing has already been determined by the company.

So with this in mind, here is a question that I recommend you ask an owner whenever they’re inviting you to make a listing presentation to them…
