How do you personally manage to balance keeping an orderly stable schedule but still remaining available for when the go, go, go realtors call?you have to realize the environment they work in. Its a go, go, go job. So when they call you will need to be ready to respond right away.
Other than that, they are the best referral machines out there. They know EVERYBODY!
Do you actively go out to find Realtors or do they typically find you?It depends on the agent and listing. Some want it done yesterday, some are willing to wait a few days.
Make sure the home has power and water or that you can supply those if needed. Also make sure to discuss payment BEFORE you commit to the job. Some agents are willing to pay upfront, others expect that you will wait for payment until the sale closes. That could be days to months or a year. Usually you can work with them and once you establish a rapport with them it should be smooth sailing.
I have a bunch of awesome realtors that throw tons of work my way, but I also have a wont work for that realtor list because they gave jobs and never paid...
mostly its awesome
funny, there have only been a couple instances where the Realtor actually paid for the job. Usually the person selling the house writes the check.
Either way, the person selling the house has put their trust in the Realtor and when the Realtor says they work with xyz painter or xyz carpet cleaner, the seller almost always goes along with that recommendation.
no they were referrals themselvesLOL... i wish i had kept a list of the deadbeats.
I wish there was a way to disqualify the deadbeats before they tie up time & resources. Somehow they always seem to sneak in.
Did your past deadbeat realtors find you via SEO or Social Media marketing or were they referred to you?
