March 1, 2016I’m soooo excited about this episode of the #TomFerryShow.
My friends, this is the one episode you’ve been waiting for that is going to make the biggest difference in your business.
Bookmark this video and watch it over and over again to ensure you are mastering every step of these powerful listing presentation tips.
Now, let’s get into it …
Would you say that your listing presentations are stale and generic?
Do you walk into an appointment saying the exact same spiel as the three agents before you did?
It’s time to up your game, stand out from the competition and get the easy YES!
Tip #1: Know Your Customer
Research your customer before the appointment:
Check out their social sites (no, this isn’t considered stalking)
Look for commonalities that you can build rapport on
Pre-qualify your customers
Who are the decision makers?
What are their exact needs and desires?
When are they looking to make a decision?
Tip #2: Do Your Homework on the Market
Go beyond the comps!
Really know the features of each recent sale, know the neighborhood, the culture, the community – everything
Tip #3: Show up Mentally Prepared
Don’t be LATE! This disrespects the client and does the opposite of building rapport
Visualize speaking with your customer and your desired outcome for the meeting
Set your mindset to knowing that you are the obvious YES
Don’t be over-confident – move and speak with elegance surrounded by trust
Would You Like to Generate and Convert More Leads in Less Time?
Starting the meeting with a story that immediately captures interest and differentiates you from the rest
“I’ve been on 62 of these appointments and 58 people chose to work with me. My goal is to make this as easy and quick of process as possible for you.”
If you’re a newer agent: “Our firm has successfully listed and sold over 275 homes and every week at our team meeting we debrief. We discovered there are 5 questions that every customer asks. Would you like to know what they are?”
Here are the 5 questions:
How are you going to get me the most money?
How much time is it going to take?
What’s your track record?
What’s your marketing plan?
Who else is involved in the process/team?
Tip #5: Share Case Studies, Not Promises
Continue the story by sharing case studies of similar customers. This allows you to demonstrate your expertise and experience in an engaging and memorable way.
“When I helped Tom and Kathy sell their 3 bedroom, 2 bath home down the street, what worked really well was …”
Here’s the flow of a case study (image below) that works
Earned the listing

I know a lot of people who achieved truly extraordinary sales years in 2020. Yet back in early/mid-March, many of those same people felt frozen in their tracks, wondering if they’ll be able to sell another house until the pandemic was over. So what changed? They got resourceful. They innovated. They adapted. And perhaps even […]

But it’s an occasional reality of today’s market. For whatever reason – location, price, quality – certain homes seem to be […]
