Is your real estate world constantly shifting where one month you feel like oh my gosh, business is booming! and the next... tumbleweeds are rolling by?
If you ever have days when you wake up wondering... where will my next paycheck come from?
Then you should keep reading.
In fact, you should read this twice.
But first, don''t you love it when people say...
They have no clue at all. They should try to sell real estate for a little while.. I mean, most people have no idea what you go through to scratch out a good living.
You are the FOUNDER AND CEO
You are the ACCOUNTANT
You are the THE MARKETING DEPT
You are the PROJECT MANAGER
You are the CLOSING COORDINATOR
You are the CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPT
You are the person responsible for generating new business (which is the most important) and this has to be a main focus every day.
Maybe you have an assistant. Maybe you have two assistants. Maybe you even have a few buyer agents...
Regardless, business is tough and whether you are a top agent knocking down new deals every week, a brand new salesperson looking for your first buyer, or anywhere in between, I am sure you will agree... having a STEADY STREAM OF BUSINESS IS IMPORTANT.
Having transactions every month is BETTER.
And having a CONSISTENT PIPELINE OF CLOSINGS happen every year is the BEST.
But no matter where you are businesswise, the funny thing about real estate is...
You can have the best day, the worst day, the best day, the worst day and then...break for lunch.
With that said, it's good you are here, because you have the power to change this cycle...
FSBOS - They don't want to hire you.
EXPIREDS - They are frustrated.
OPEN HOUSES - Slow and unpredictable.
WEB LEADS - They think you're a stalker.
Get stuck in rush hour traffic on a Friday only to have a FSBO tell you "bring me a buyer and I will pay you 1%" - (SERIOUSLY ???)
You can wonder if you are going to continue getting undercut by discount companies.
You can have people look you in the eye, promise to hire you, and then forget your name 5 minutes later.
And sure, these things don't happen all the time, but when they do...
It feels like you are chewing on tin foil.
Only working on referral.
Never having to pitch someone.
No more agents undercutting you.
Selling homes month after month.
Most agents think that you have to be in business for 20 plus years to get a steady stream of referrals. That's true if you choose to think it is.
But how do you get referrals sooner?
It's simple. STOP SENDING JUNK!
Mundane drip campaigns we have seen in the industry should be avoided at all costs. Life is already too noisy...
Recipes, newsletters filled with real estate jargon, articles about how the interest rates might go up.
If you are not careful...if you don't provide REAL VALUE, you risk being ANNOYING. Being ANNOYING is the KISS OF DEATH! Being annoying means NOT HAVING REPEAT BUSINESS. Being annoying means NOT GETTING REFERRALS.
Providing VALUE after the closing is the BEST way.
That's a great question! How would the founder of a technology company know all of these things about your real estate world?
Well, I am not the average tech guy.
I am just like you. A hard working real estate agent since 1995. I have been fortunate to have had pretty good success. I was even named "The Best Realtor" in my city.
I built the BellaRuby Closing Gift to help my own business and have shared it with several of my past clients.
Here is a review from one of them:
As homeowners with busy lives and demanding jobs, my husband and I find ourselves constantly asking each other, "where did you file that?" "Did we save that?" "Who can we get to fix that?"
This software is a perfect one-stop vault for all of the items you know you should save but don’t know how or where.
Probably most helpful to us is the network of service providers and connections. Having this contact network at our fingertips is invaluable. It is the first place we turn—whether for needs around our own house or to recommend to friends and family.
Julie Foster - Homeowner
Julie is one of my favorites because she sent me the following referrals: Michael, then Brittain, then Darcy, then Jaimie, Hillary and Cullen and finally her sister, Becca.
Without her, I would not have had these 7 closings. I am her biggest fan.
We created this system for past clients like Julie.
Standard CRMs have been around for a long time, and they certainly have their place. Traditional contact management systems are designed to keep you organized and remind your clients that you are in real estate. In today’s mobile world, you need to do more.
BellaRuby is DIFFERENT.
Your clients get a software to help them maintain their home (FREE OF CHARGE) and you get to provide more value and stay connected forever. It is a set it and forget it system that keeps you relevant, and in their lives for the long term.
Giving the gift is fast and easy.
Your time is valuable and you will find there is a zero learning curve.
Upload your photo and logo so your branding sits front and center, then start adding people and their documents:
The name of the appraiser, the survey, the attorney, their home inspection...
This easy access to the closed transaction is a natural extension of the already stellar service you provided getting to the closing table.SEE HOMEOWNER INVITE
Because your connections matter.
You already send people business every day. You should get credit for it.
Invite the business owners you love and trust to become a part of your automated referral network.
Share your connections with buyers and sellers that need them...Become known as the go-to agent in your community that gets things done.
Call it karma. Call it goodwill. Whatever your flavor, GIVING WORKS.SEE HOMEOWNER INVITE
Get clients to remember you forever.
Just before you invite your clients to start using their new home management system, you get to sprinkle in a little personality.
BellaRuby will fire up your webcam so you can congratulate them on their new home.
Make sure to mention the date, so they can reflect back years later and remember the exact day that you sold them their home.
This Time Capsule feature is a powerful way to help you stay personable and to become their agent for life.SEE HOMEOWNER INVITE
Become even more valuable.
The BellaRuby Closing Gift keeps you involved in their home management system with a set it and forget it approach to staying in their lives.
Would you be impressed if your real estate agent reminded you to clean out your dryer duct vent ?
Or how would you feel if your real estate agent reminded you to shop for a new homeowner's insurance policy to see if you can save yourself some money?
Strengthen your relationships, add more value, and stay involved long past the closing.SEE HOMEOWNER INVITE

There is no magic pill, but...
Did you know that David Copperfield is the most successful magician on the planet?
And even though he owns 9 private islands and could never spend all of the wealth he has built, he still performs over 600 shows in Las Vegas every year.
Think about this for a moment. Over 600 shows a year!
There are magicians that are vying for the top spot every day. There are the Chris Angels and the David Blaines of the world that have built a strong brand themselves, and are pushing themselves in big ways.
And sure, David could take a backseat to these new acts. He has had a great run. He could just coast into his golden years. He certainly has more money than he will ever need again, but he doesn't.
He loves what he does and continues to push himself. David Copperfield knows that there is no magic pill to success.
Twice a day he performs at a high level because he believes in the power of consistency, hard work and knows what it takes to stay on top of his game. He is fully committed to his craft, and every day he makes the decision to move forward, not just stay in the same place.
So what will YOU do?
You are officially invited to join the BellaRuby community of real estate professionals that have made the decision to do more for their clients than ever before. Agents everywhere are providing more value and are staying in the lives of the people that matter.
These agents have started to build a more consistent real estate business, by GIVING.
We hope you will join us.
