$1000 American Express Contest–3rd Quarter

First Team is very supportive of its agents, and the marketing department  provides us with numerous downloadable marketing pieces among others. Here’s the original Q3 AmEx Contest O-Flyers which I modified to cut down on cost when my husband and I distribute them to our Farm area. Cutting down on graphics is always my first target when we print our own flyers such as this one — Q3 AmEx Contest F-Flyers.

Below is the enlarged CONTEST RULES from the original contest flyers for ease of reading and information purposes only, and not meant as any interpretation or deliberate changes in layout or other perceived discrepancies. Note: If it gets too dificult for the color to read, highlight the text with your cursur. I still can’t find a more suitable theme or format.

Closing Escrow in a Week

Closing escrow in a week?!  As new Realtors…my husband and I could only dream this…especially if I keep sitting on my A$$ blogging instead of walking…KNOCKING doors in our farming territory. I’m just postponing the inevitable–as our managers said…we need that face time if we want returns on investment.

Four months of training (there’s so much to learn), distributing flyers (we need face recognition…we’re not burglars), building websites (now blogging –we need exposures), and what nots! We need some reality check in breaking the bank…no, no, no…I did not say ‘breaking into a bank’ though it feels that way sometimes.  😦 ):

To delay that door-to-door contact, my husband had been very good in searching for possible Open Houses even as far as an hour drive to San Bernardino. No LEADS so far, just MISleads and MISSleads! I’m starting to lose my sense of humor. We keep telling ourselves we don’t mind going far…it’s a first-hand look at the market out there. Who are we kidding? So when we found one First Team listing agent close to our farming area, we were delighted to contact him. When he said, he will ask the owner…we were hopeful!

A week or so–just now as I was blogging–my husband contacted the listing agent again, and I heard “That’s great!”…I had the not-great-for-us feeling. True enough…that house on Trevor Street sold in a week! A cash buyer walked in, and escrow closed in a week! What a dream if we could have one that way. Indeed…a lost dream of having an Open House close to our farm where we can invite the neighbors. Now, we should practice our KNOCKtiquette!
