STOP The Madness!

ATTENTION fellow real estate agents of Arizona! If you have money to burn, there is a worthless marketing campaign out there just for you. It might seem like a small investment to satisfy your sellers with absolutely no return. I'm refering to the endless array of email flyers about numerous listings that fill my inbox every night. Every morning when I sit down at my computer the first thing I do is empty my inbox with a big fat KABOSH on the delete key. We are in the business to make money not give it away, especially in this market. Please be more resourceful with the use of your money and time. It is time to go back to the old fashion practice of building relationships and using creative imaginations to attract visitors to actually step foot into the properties we have listed. I have faith in the quality of individuals involved in this industry. Strive for a higher level of professionalism. You can do it!
