What a Title Insurance Sales Rep Should Mean to a Realtor

 

Title Insurance Sales Rep on a computerI was meeting with someone last week and he said: “If Title Companies stopped bringing bagels and donuts to Realtor offices, bakeries would go out of business!” We had a chuckle but the more I thought about it, I agreed with him. In many markets around the country, the Title Insurance Sales Rep behaves and is seen as just that…the “order taker/bagel pusher.”  It is time to change the mindset of the real estate agent and start adding real value.  I can’t tell you how many times I offered a marketing solution, taught an agent a valuable lesson in real estate technology, or helped them in their business and they said–“Wow, I didn’t realize Title Company people offered this help for agents.”  Ever have this happen to you…or never happen to you?  So how should the Realtor view their Title Insurance Sales rep?  As an order taker/bagel pusher or more? Much…much more.

Set 2nd Half Real Estate Goals

July is here.  That means “Half-Time” of the 2015 real estate year!  Have you met the real estate goals you have set? (hope you did).  Right around now is the time where Realtors and Lenders hit me up to help them “create more business.” Not because they haven’t had a successful year up to this point, but because the Spring Market is nearing an end, and the market tends to slow down with the start of vacation season.  It also is the time where agents can reflect on what they have done so far, and what they want to do to improve going forward.  Sometimes these things are big, sometimes, they are just small tweaks.  Here are 5 real estate goals to set for the second half of 2015 that can help improve your business.
