Thoughts, ideas, insights, and tips on writing for real estate - from a former real estate broker turned real estate copywriter.
What makes you the best agent your prospects could choose? How is your service better than the service they’d receive from one of your competitors? You do need to know the answer.Otherwise, you won’t be able to convey it to your prospects.I’ve learned that many agents do not know, and in fact man...
Better prospecting letters – or anything else – begins with good grammar, combined with correct spelling.But I harp about that – and about proofreading – all the time. Today is about the content.If you want to write better prospecting letters to attract real estate clients…Begin by realizing that...
Yes, we're already 1/12 of the way through 2021, but it's never too late to create a good habit.Commit to “Working when you work.” “Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a ...

It was all about people not having the courtesy to respond when they've requested something and you've sent it - even after you've asked them to let you...
