When active, spent most of my time on getting and servicing listings. That said, when inventory increased so did buyer demand and that moved the needle temporarily.

When I was active I'd say about 40% Peter Mohylsky, SoWal Is HOME. I worked mostly with Builders/Developers so I always had a constant supply of homes to sell so 60% of my time was promoting those listings.

That is the only one easy. However, sometimes it takes a month to sell. Before just 1 weekend. You are done.

If an agent focuses on buyers, they get buyers.

If an agent focuses on sellers/owners/listings, they get sellers and buyers.

Of course their are exceptions. But a business model based on exceptions does not work well for long.

I zero in on listings and in that process create buyers.
