Stay the Course: The Art and Science of Follow-Up in Estate Agency

Follow up calls

Once upon a time, in the mystical world of estate agency, there was a saying, "List it and leave it."

Thankfully, we've evolved past those dark ages. If we learned anything from the ghosts of estate agency past, it's that follow-up is the lifeblood of our industry, the magic potion that turns leads into clients, and clients into lifelong fans.


The Pursuit of Happiness (and Profit)

Imagine this: You're a sailor, navigating the rough waters of the vast real estate oceans. You've got your sights set on Treasure Island. You've got your compass (your marketing strategy) and your map (your client list). But instead of setting sail directly toward the island, you decide to drop anchor halfway, hoping the treasure will somehow find its way on board your ship!

Sounds ludicrous, right? But that's precisely what you're doing if you're not following up with your investor leads, especially after you've been hosting a property investor seminar and filled the room with ideal clients eager to fill up your bank account.

Following up with your post-seminar clients is the equivalent of sailing all the way to Treasure Island, digging up that chest of gold, and bringing it onboard your ship.


The Art Of The Follow-Up

The art of the follow-up lies in timing, tone, and tenacity. It's about striking when the iron is hot, but not so often that you're seen as a pest. It's about showing genuine interest and offering value, not just pushing for business.

The key to prospects looking forward to your call rather than diverting it to voicemail? Offering value.

Consider the property investor who attended one of your seminars or webinars. Rather than waiting for them to reach out, send them a follow-up email with a summary of the key points covered in the webinar, or offer to answer any questions they may have.

Even better, share some resources with them that you think will be helpful – like the latest market insight which shows the up-and-coming areas where rental demand is high. Or prime them for the latest deal that's just about to come on the market with you. This value-first approach shows that you're proactive, attentive, and eager to serve which wins trust.

The Science of Follow-Up

When it comes to the science of follow-up, it's all about understanding your audience, tracking your interactions, and making data-driven decisions.

Implementing a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system can work wonders here. It will help you track your interactions with each client, reminding you when to follow up, and providing valuable data about their responses.

With this information, you can tailor your approach to match their preferences, increasing your chances of success.


The Fortune in the Follow-Up

In the end, the fortune is indeed in the follow-up.

It's the difference between a potential client attending your event and then forgetting about you because life got in the way, and actually becoming a client who gives you revenue-generating opportunities.

It's the difference between a one-time client and a repeat client. And most importantly, it's the difference between an unsatisfied client and a raving fan who refers their entire network to you.


Reeling In Lost Leads

Sometimes, leads can go cold, and like a sailor lost at sea, they drift away. However, with strategic follow-up, you can reel them back in. This is where a long-term nurture campaign comes in handy – even if it's just a weekly email with general market updates.

So don't be afraid to reach out to those cold leads. They showed interest in your services once; there's a good chance they still need them.

Just remember - keep your follow-ups relevant and personal. A simple, "Hey, we noticed you were interested in investment properties a while back. We've got a few that you might like," can work wonders in the curiosity stakes!


The Power of Persistence

Persistence is key in the follow-up game. Yes, there's a fine line between being persistent and becoming a nuisance, but don't let fear of crossing that line deter you from following up.

Remember, our memories are fickle things. Just because someone doesn't respond to your first or second follow-up doesn't mean they're not interested. They might have just forgotten or been too busy at the time. A friendly reminder that you're there to help could be just what they need.


Follow-Up Finesse

Now, we've talked a lot about the importance of follow-ups, but let's not forget about the how. Your follow-up should always aim to provide value, not just ask for something.

For example, instead of merely asking if they're ready to buy, offer some value. Share a blog post about the current property market or give them a sneak peek at a new property that's just come onto the market. Maybe you found a YouTube video that you think might offer them some insight into their business that they'd never had before.

Show them that you're not just interested in their business, but in helping them succeed.
