Now is the Time for Action
By Real Estate Recruiting Coach Judy LaDeur
A lot has changed in the last couple of years. It feels like everything in some ways, doesn’t it? For many agents, this was a time to re-evaluate their entire career and the way they do business — and that includes where they hang their license.
Just as agents are finding tremendous success picking up the phone and contacting everyone in their sphere to reconnect, check-in, and ask how they can help — now is the perfect time for you, as brokers and recruiters, to do the same with the agents who have left your company over the past ten years.
For some of those agents who thought the “grass was greener” elsewhere? Many have found out that it is just as hard to mow somewhere else. That leaves an opportunity for you to open the door again and invite them to see what they’ve missed in their time away and what you are currently doing to help agents shorten learning curves, fire on all cylinders, effectively use technology and system tools to connect with clients and customers virtually — and what you are doing to support agents during this chaotic time.
Which of your good agents did you lose over the past 10 years? Do you want them back? Pick up the phone and call them. But first, give some thought to the qualities that the agent has, or a funny situation that occurred when they worked for you. Which sincere compliment can you give that agent? Why did they go to that firm? Are they missing out on brand awareness, resources, tools, training, technology or broker support? Maybe you’ve set up a new training system, or mentoring program, or added marketing tools? Is your agent production through the roof? Are they making more money than the average agent in your market? We are in the midst of a strong and emerging market. These are excellent times to build your office and increase your market share. Ensure that you are a part of the celebration by working today to change your future in a positive way!
Next, reflect on the relationship – and genuinely make the first part of your call about checking in. Seeing how they are doing. Learning about what — if anything — they need or might be struggling with. Let them know that you care and that you are there. In that conversation – they might realize that now is the perfect time for them to “come home” — sometimes the PAST can be a great part of a new FUTURE.
