Just staying in touch regularly is what keeps my business at an 80% repeat and referral year in and year out. And I don't particularly do pop-bys...

This is a relationship business - use your CRM and reach out to your sphere, organize events for them and visit with them - you'll soon have a 95% referral/repeat business. Good luck, Chris!

1)  when asked for information,  I provide it. I don't "pop by"

2) I hold open house events where my goal is to present and show off the best qualities of that property.  I have, in addition to showing the property at the open house, made connections with neighbors,  possible buyers and probable sellers.

When lived in Los Angeles, I hated those pop-by's. And in Napa, thankfully our home was up a long winding hill with a gate.  I hated the stuff in my mailbox as the bottom also.  Luckily, here, no one pops by.  

I agree with Nina Hollander style, it worked for us in our commercial real estate firm.  A
