GET SOCIAL As an agent, you should learn everything you can about the areas you work in. Visit public gatherings, including ballgames, church socials and community events. Make friends and listen to them. Not only are these your greatest source of information, they are also your future customers. www.RealEstateExpress.com 1-866-739-7277

CATCH THE NEWS Local news organizations, real estate blogs, social media, papers, television, and radio are great resources for concerns, events, and other outcomes that affect areas and neighborhoods. A few minutes skimming through the local news can alert you to new developments or issues that you can add to your real estate arsenal. www.RealEstateExpress.com 1-866-739-7277

GO EXPLORE Get out of the office and explore. Drive through the neighborhoods, take a walk through the parks, stop at the yards sales. These are opportunities to learn your turf and do some networking. www.RealEstateExpress.com 1-866-739-7277

JUST ASK Be responsive to all questions from clients or prospective clients, even if there aren’t any answers. It’s ok if you don’t know everything. You don’t have to instantly have the answer to every question, but you should make every effort to find the answers. Ask your network for information you don’t have, ask clients what they want and value so you can find the information they don’t have. www.RealEstateExpress.com 1-866-739-7277

NOW GO! Real estate agents are like detectives, treasure hunters, and tour guides, all wrapped into one. The better an agent knows the areas and neighborhoods they are working in, the better they will be able to answer their client’s asked and unasked questions and help. Ready to get started?
