Too many agents are acting as order-takers instead of advisors. Why is it so important to be assertive? How do you break into the high-end listings consistently? What are some opportunities these properties create? On this episode, Bob Hurwitz, broker, CEO and founder of Hurwitz James Company shares his strategies for breaking into high-end listings.
It’s important to differentiate yourself, especially when you’re competing with agents who have already made inroads into the high-end market. -Bob Hurwitz
Takeaways + Tactics
- Most properties fail to sell in their first iteration, which presents an opportunity for smart agents.
- Use marketing to create a sense of urgency.
- If you market properties in an intelligent way you’re going to get buyers coming to you directly.
The difference between a home selling and a home languishing on the market is heavily reliant on the skill of the agent. It’s important to market and communicate well, and differentiate yourself from the pack. The secret with luxury and high-end listings is that “first doesn’t always mean best”. When properties don’t sell in their first iteration, that’s the time for you to step in and make it sell. Have the guts to step into the batter’s box!
