    Building Your Dreamer Teams

    Building Your Dreamer Teams

    Inspired by a conversation involving the topic of ‘looky-loos’, Matt and Garrett take the opportunity today to delve into the crucial role of language in real estate, revealing how rephrasing terms can open up new opportunities. Highlighting the transformative potential of viewing potential clients as "dreamers" rather than just "leads," our hosts emphasize the importance of recognizing their long-term aspirations and goals.
    Matt and Garrett go on to explore the nuances of engaging with clients in the dreaming phase of their real estate journey, stressing the importance of providing attention and care to those envisioning their future, even if they are not immediately ready to buy or sell. They note that, by shifting mindsets and treating dreamers with the same respect as ready-to-transact clients, agents can cultivate a robust referral network. Practical tips, personal anecdotes, and strategies for creating an engaging open house environment are offered throughout the episode, illustrating how these approaches can lead to long-term success in real estate.
