Adventures in Door Knocking - Chapter 15

One of the people I door knocked told me his son used to be in real estate and now he is unemployed.  How sad! I gave the man my business card and told him to have his son call me.  We are hiring and as matter of fact, Exit Realty is the fastest growing franchise in the world.  We are the only Real Estate company that offers life long benefits for both when agents retire and for their beneficiaries and compensates agents for helping their peers for life.

The highlight of my morning was watching a class full of toddlers walking in the neighborhood.  Each of them was holding their “buddy’s” hand with parents strategically placed for added safety.  Their teacher was in the front showing her little learners about the changing leaves.  Absolutely adorableThe parents, the teacher and the crossing guard were all very friendly.  None of them were moving, but each of them graciously took my business card. 

Young families make up a large percentage of real estate clients.  Many parents are looking for more space, once their children are more mobile.  A newborn does not require a lot of toys, and technically neither to toddlers, but friends and family seem to think otherwise and often time parents move before their kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room double as playrooms.  Something else very common amongst younger families is that they have not been educated on the value of owning a home.  Often times they think that they cannot afford to own.  What many renters find out that for many people their monthly mortgage payments would be less than their monthly rent checks and it is a tax write off.  Even more exciting than many long-term savings accounts (retirement plans, annuities, etc.) offer special incentives to first time buyers at little or no-cost.  Interested in more info? Give me a call! I would be happy to give you a no-obligation complimentary real estate analysis, if you are buying, selling or both.  I have actually told people that now is not the time to buy or sell.  It is more important for me to earn your respect and your trust than to earn immediate money.

I found a mover this morning; a husband renting with his wife, two children and their grandma.  They want more space, privacy and are tired are paying rent.  I’m looking forward to welcoming them to the “homeowners club” and educating them about all of it’s benefits.

I then was informed of some very sad and surprising news.  The real estate company that rented me my very first apartment out of college went out of business.  I feel like the company had been in business forever.  I found out when one of the people that I door knocked told me that his son used to be in real estate and now he is unemployed.  How sad! I gave the man my business card and told him to have his son call me.  We are hiring and as matter of fact, Exit Realty is the fastest growing franchise in the world.  We are the only real estate company that offers life long benefits for both when agents retire and for their beneficiaries and compensates agents for helping their peers for life.  If you or someone you know is looking to enhance or even begin your real estate career, anywhere in the United States or Canada, call me for a confidential interview, today.  No experience is necessary simply the desire to want to help educate people about real estate, one family at a time.
