Extreme Realtor Marketing: Pandemic Edition

No matter how much mortgage brokers try to avoid it, the referral source who interacts with the largest number of clients in the market for a mortgage is a REALTOR. The problem is - mortgage brokers often get stuck chasing realtors who are low producers or high maintenance. The rest “have a broker” or “all their clients are already pre-approved.” There is a way to attract more realtors, quicker and without all the headaches.
 
In this timely, business driving session, learn how to:

  • Target the realtors that nobody is chasing
  • Host events that will put you in front of fifty realtors a month
  • *NEW* Win over new realtors even when you can't be face to face
  • *NEW* Help your realtor partners win more deals without meeting clients face to face

Looking Forward… Surely There’s Something Positive Here!

When the COVID-19 pandemic crisis first hit, all any of us could do was react as best we could to the multitude of challenges that were being thrown at us. It’s been overwhelming and has brought out the best and the worst in us. As we start to talk about rounding the corner, we know that the society we had to step back from isn’t going to be the one we step back into, which is both exciting and frightening in the uncertainties and the possibilities. 

Since one of the few things we ever have control of is ourselves, it’s time to consider your best self and to choose your most positive and sustainable approach to the opportunities and challenges that are facing us as we look forward.
