Mick,

This is also known as push/pull.  We like to pull, some like to push.  It is really  very simple, some like to be pursued, some like to be attracted.  We like to be attracted and run out of the door when pursued...We run our business by attracting, and the few times we have pursued we hated what happened.  A

There has to be an element of both, even if you are thinking you are attracting business you have got to pursue something to get the attraction. Prospecting is pursuing.  Marketing is pursuing so that you may attract them. Calling leads from an open house, a website registration, a conversation at a party - that is pursuing and that isn't bad.  Chasing is different than pursuing.  -Kasey

Like a pack of wild dogs. Run them up a tree and don't let them down until they sign.

That is how it appears from the owner side when a listing expires. Agents lay siege to their location and are unrelenting.

How do I run mine? IT is more like a sniper. Targeted, specific, fluid and blends into the landscape..
