On one of my most recent listing appointments I was going up against a well known listing agent. The seller said this agent has been trying to get him to sell his property for quite some time but according to the trust the seller had to interview more than one agent. At that point I asked the seller if this other agent was going to use the latest technology to get information to potential buyers as they were sitting outside his house. He said the other agent didn’t say anything about getting info to buyers cell phones. I then asked the seller to take out his iPhone and dial the Virtual Agent number. In a matter of seconds he was looking at a home I had listed in Lincoln for $800,000. He was impressed that I would use the same expensive technology to sell his $150,000 property. That alone got me the listing.
I recently listed a duplex on a dead-end street where I expected very few people to drive by. I had at least six hits on my Virtual Agent rider, and from those I connected with several peoople. I am now working actively with one of them, to find a home, and another wants to buy a duplex in two months.
Also, I had a listing about four months ago, and had a number of hits on the rider; from one of them, I gained not only a client but we have already closed a transaction on a home ! I really believe that Virtual Agent is an awesome tool for increasing our leads.
