Creating a Team or Partnership? This is your MUST-HAVE!

Expectations in a team or partnership.

I have worked with dozens and dozens of partnerships, teams, and businesses through the years. The vast majority of them wind up falling apart. Agents and brokers form alliances with the best of intentions – I am good at this, you are good at that; let’s leverage our time and resources – but usually don’t […]

Ask Denise: Homeowner Equity Report

Q: “Denise, tell me more about this homeowner’s equity report to send to past clients that I have heard you talk about.” A: The Homeowner’s Equity Report is a fantastic tool that can be added on to Annual Client Review or it can be a completely separate report that you send. Basically, you are showing […]

Automate Your Business for the Holidays

Every year in mid-November I hear the same complaint from agents. They come to me and say: “Denise, everything is slowing down. I feel like there’s no point to doing anything right now. So I think I’ll just ramp things down and plan next year.” While it’s a good idea to plan next year, it […]

The Danger of Not Doing Your Research Before You Open Your Mouth

I received a call recently from a client that was upset because she had lost a listing that she was sure she was going to get from a past client.  When I asked her why she thought she did not get the listing she told me that she had no idea.  So, I asked her […]

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s Zebra Report. This week I want to talk about Covid Communication.

Ask Denise: How to Measure Market Demand

Q: Denise, I have been watching your weekly Denise Live and your Market Survival Guides. I want to take some of your ideas and put together a report for my past clients. But I noticed that when you talk about inventory, you indicate that to measure demand, we should look at homes under contract (pendings) […]

Finding Buried Treasure When Digging for Data

Hi everyone. Today’s Zebra Report is about something I’m extremely excited about, and I’m dedicating today’s Zebra Report to Blair. Blair is the daughter of one of my long-time clients, Kitty. Blair is intelligent, energetic, and really personable, but for any new agent coming into the business, knowledge is power. We had a call together […]

Ask Denise: Niche Mailing Campaign

Q: “Denise, I am taking your advice and doing some focused lead generation for the next 90 days. I have identified a shortage of small homes (less than 1000 square feet) in a very popular neighborhood just outside the city center. There have been eight listings that have come on the market in the last […]
