EXTREME REALTOR MARKETING

Joel Olson
Canadian Mortgage Experts
2:45 pm - 3:30 pm


No matter how much we try to avoid it, the referral source who interacts with the most amount of clients looking for a mortgage is a Realtor. The problem is, mortgage brokers 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 incurring problems. Learn how to target the Realtors that nobody is chasing and how to run events that will put you in front of fifty Realtors a month.
