Has anyone had any great success with door knocking?  As a loan officer, I see it as a potential I haven't really tried yet.  There are so many homes for sale in my area, I think I'd like to try door knocking and presenting the home seller with some information for when they do sell their home.  ...

Tonight I had the opportunity to stop in and visit a friend.  By the way, I am away from home on a personal matter.  So, I stopped in to see an old friend.  Now this friend has received my cards, has received calls from me begging for a referral, and I always just stop in and say hi when I'm arou...

Hello Active Rain community, Everyone refers to the summer as the 'busy season' and the holidays as the slow season.  What do you do to prepare for a slowdown, based on seasonal activity.  It's makes sense that people aren't out home shopping as much in Dec and Jan as May and June.  How do you ge...

We all tell our clients that they can reach us anytime. You can reach me night or day, 24/7.  I work weekends.  Call me on Sunday.   These are all lines that we've all heard in our personal lives as well as business dealings.  I even recently ran across someone in my area who promised to return v...
