How can you consistently:

1) Stay in front of your SOI

2) Leverage yourself

3) Provide value

4) Be known as the local authority in your area

5) Be known as the knowledgeable real estate professional you are

6) Receive leads and referrals

7) See who are potential buyers and sellers in your sphere

Through a custom, digital STRATEGIC Realtor® Newsletter…DONE CORRECTLY.

This is one of the best ways to stand apart, leverage yourself, provide helpful community information and provide valuable real estate information to your sphere.

A Digital Realtor® Newsletter is a MUST IN YOUR BUSINESS.

4. Optimize Your Real Estate Website

Your professional real estate website is your “real estate” on the web. 

It’s where anyone can stop by your “store” and get to know you, your professionalism and what you have to offer as a Realtor®.

Get people use to using your real estate website rather than Zillow or any other website out there.

Make sure you have search features for available properties, the ability to get a CMA from your site, a contact management system built into it and the ability to have articles on it.


You also want to drive people to your site every chance you get and have them get used to using your site over other sites.

You want your site to be so good that they recommend your site to other people to use too…that’s what happened to me with my Realtor® website.

8. Ask For Referrals

Referrals 4 lines drawn under write names

Real estate agents get so busy with the multitude of tasks, clients and other projects that it’s easy to forget to ask for referrals.

Have systems in place so you regularly receive referrals:

• Remind your sphere to send you referrals in your digital real estate newsletter

• Ask for referrals when you close

• Send feedback questionaires when you close and ask for referrals

• When making phone calls to your sphere ask for referrals

• Build relationships with professionals in the industry and ask them to send you referrals

• Create a reward program for those who send you referrals.  Check with your state or country so you know the legal limits and ethical requirements when implementing your reward program.

• Head over here for more ideas to generate real estate referrals

9. Have A Real Estate Business Plan

Dartboard with arrow in bullseye says SET YOUR GOALS

Have a real estate business plan.  Write down your real estate goals and how you plan to achieve them.

A Harvard study showed that 3% of their graduating students earned 20 times more than the rest of their class by writing down goals and having a plan.

I can’t emphasize how important this one is.  Regularly review your goals, where you are in achieving them (make sure you have deadlines for them) – reflect where you are in achieving them and make adjustments where need be.

You can take your real estate business to new heights with established goals, plans, focus and CONSISTENT EXECUTION.

10.  Use A Real Estate Business Scorecard

Scorecard that says NUMBERS

Maintain a regular log or scorecard and track where you are on achieving your goals.  I keep a daily scorecard.

Keeping a regular scorecard allows you to see when you’re on track to achieving your goal/s and when you start to veer off.

If you start to veer off you off from achieving your goal/s you can readily catch it and adjust your plan (actions) immediately since you’re watching the trajectory regularly.

I introduce how to use a scorecard in this Realtor® Planner.

11.  Get Reviews

Consistently ask for reviews and place them everywhere.

These third-party endorsements give credence to you as a professional and many people will relate to the various stories your clients write in their reviews.

These reviews make you relatable and also show that others found you and your services to be beyond their expectations and were exceptionally satisfied with you (and your team).

Place them on:

1) Your real estate website

2)  In your digital newsletter.  Start with one review in your newsletter and link to the others on your website so your sphere can continue reading *what others say.*

3) On your social media accounts

4) Invite people to Yelp you

5) Invite people to leave a google review

You work hard in your real estate business. You ensure you provide the best care and service for your clients.

Your clients will be thrilled to provide you with reviews. 

You have to ask them!

12.  Utilize Accountability 

Real Estate Agent Group Coaching

Take your business to the next level by having an accountability partner and/or business coach.

Setting goals are a must and AND, if you have specific accountability with a person with whom you’ve committed, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%.
