Quotes

  • Geographic farming can be a really good thing if you’re new to the business without much of a social sphere because the relationships you build through geographic farming will eventually become your social sphere.
  • The cornerstone to the whole geographic farming program is consistency and personal contact.
  • When you’re out doorknocking, don’t talk real estate unless they bring it up first.
  • We are the best we’ve ever been; but I know that, next year, we’ll be even better, because we’re always looking for ways to improve every year.
  • You’re really looking not only for the business in the farm but, even better, the referrals.
  • When you’re giving, it does come back.
  • At the end of the day, I know this formula works, if it’s worked.
