How to Approach Your Sphere of Influence Without Sounding SalesyThis question keeps popping up in our Success in Senior Real Estate courses.
“What is the best way to approach my sphere of influence without sounding salesy?”
My favorite approach to contacting my tribe is simply this:
“Hi. I was just thinking about you today and wondered if there was anything I could do for you today to make your life easier. As you know, as a real estate agent, I am connected with lots of different community resources and information and it would be my pleasure to help you in any way – real estate or otherwise. As you may recall, my specialty and my passion is in helping elders with either aging in place or making it easier for them when moving into something more manageable, so don’t hesitate to call if you know of a family or neighbor I can help with this. Make it a great day!”Chances are you are leaving a message and people truly appreciate the fact you even thought about them and took the time to reach out and offer your support.
