Is there one question that could increase commissions like crazy? Think about it for a moment.

Figure it out?

If not no big deal you defiantly are not alone. But the question is this, "Do you have a real estate agent where you are moving?" This one single question can lead to more referral fees (<– check out the linked blog for a deep dive) and relationships (<– pssst check this out to) then anything.

Let's talk about it.

The Question and Conversation

This simple question, “Do you have a real estate agent where you are moving?” immediately places you in a space to gain a future commission. It puts you in the position to increase commissions, overall. Many clients will not have another agent lined up and here is your opportunity to help them and yourself – it’s a win-win situation set-up. We love those.

If your client does not have an agent where they are moving to, you should be sure to offer to set them up with one. Additionally, should the client want options, you can offer to set them up with more than one prospective agent that they can then interview.

During that same kitchen table conversation, remember to always tell your clients that at no additional cost to them, they can use you for advice where ever they go and that by relocating to a different town, they still have their relationship with you as their agent. Let them know that you are happy to search some comps on a potential property or just be a third eye on something they are considering as a professional courtesy of the relationship.
