Getting a Buyer To Take Action Now!

Getting a Buyer To Take Action Now!

Nothing is more frustrating than getting your leads down your Reel Geeks funnel only to be met with indecision.

Buyer indecision is one of the most common pain points for many realtors. Fortunately, Dirk Zeller walks us through his methods for getting buyers to take action.

Strap in and prepare to take action as Dirk shows you his tried and tested methods for turning a “maybe” into a “yes!”

Get face to face.


Create the Sense of Urgency

“[The real estate market is] better today than it will be two or three years in the future.”

Dirk concedes that buyers would have been better off investing in properties a few years ago. Nevertheless, he emphasizes that no matter how bad things seem, now is still the time to dive into the housing market. 

It may not be the best time in history to do this, but it will prove to be a wiser decision down the road. As a realtor, you should emphasize this idea as you engage with your leads. 

We've got to read people.


Point Out the Opportunities for Negotiation

“Sellers are more flexible.”

You should also point out that your buyer leads are in a better position now with developers right-sizing their offerings. These massive adjustments are a function of the opened market inventory and a less-saturated buyer pool. 

These developments lead to developers being more open to negotiations. Frame the flexibility as an opportunity for your buyer leads, and you will be nudging them towards action in no time.

Emphasize the Benefits of Ownership

“You’re either paying someone else’s mortgage or yours. Which is to your preference?”

Some of your buyer leads may be renting, and that’s fine. However, if you’re nurturing them as your leads, present the benefits of owning a property. Doing this can encourage some of your leads to take the plunge and take action on a new property — preferably one in your listings. 

Getting Face-to-face

However you wish to approach your conversion efforts, make sure you meet your leads face-to-face. You don’t need to drive half an hour away to meet any one of your buyer or seller leads. A simple Zoom or Facetime meeting will suffice.

Dirk said it best. When you get face to face: “Your conversion rates go through the roof.”

Choose Leads With the Right “DNA”


“Are you watering a dead plant?”

You don’t have to have a meeting with everyone on top of your conversion funnel. You optimize a great deal by qualifying your leads. Dirk presents his DNA formula for separating quality leads from the ones you ought to leave out. 

Based on his formula, the ideal lead wants to buy a property (desire). Also, a quality lead has a “gap” in their personal lives that a property can fill (need). Lastly, high-quality leads have the financial resources and decision-making power (ability and authority) to “pull the trigger,” so to speak. 

A lead that ticks all these boxes is worth arranging an appointment with. 

Final Step: Encourage Action With an Appointment

Once your lead has consumed enough market information, you can reach out for an appointment. However, Dirk recommends framing the meeting not as a sales appointment but as one where you’re asking for help.  

Present yourself as wanting a better idea of your lead’s wants and needs. During the conversation, you can determine which of your listings will be to the lead’s liking. Later, you can present options that will turn your lead into a buyer. 

Turn a “Maybe” Into a “Yes!”

The market may seem dismal. However, beneath the fears and uncertainty, buyers wrestle with opportunities for future gains. 

Present these opportunities to your leads, and you will convert your leads into buyers in no time.

Keeping It Real: The Resources To Equip Your Real Estate Team for Success



In this episode of Keeping it Real, Sascha Chatman and  Frank Klesitz, CEO of Vyral Marketing, break down how you can equip your real estate team for success.

Learn more about the resources needed to manage your own team of real estate agents. Of course, a capable workforce is one thing for generating leads and obtaining success in the real estate world. However, having the right resources available is one of the critical factors needed to equip your real estate team for success.

Discovery Phase

The discovery phase is meant to determine whether or not the agents being recruited are the right fit for their real estate team while providing the necessary details for the agents to know what their team is about. Sascha first discusses their team goals and strategies to ensure agents know exactly what they're walking into. He also discusses other matters, such as expectations from the agents themselves and their commissions.

The discovery phase may be one of the most important parts of knowing how to equip your real estate team for success. In order to succeed, you need to have a reliable workforce on your side that shares the same goals and is willing to cooperate with the rest of the team to move forward. Having a compatible and efficient team is one of the best resources you can have in real estate, as it can significantly affect your business' productivity.

Agent Utility Belt

This is the highlight of the entire video. Sascha compares his utility belt of resources to Batman's belt of tools and trinkets. This belt essentially exists to store all resources and keep them within reach. Don't get the wrong idea, though. It's not an actual belt. Instead, it is usually a cloud or a compilation of all your valuable resources, such as videos, links, and other agent tools. Having a utility belt that is curated specifically for your team and your needs could help increase the productivity of your workflow because you won't have to scavenge for resources when you need them.

Not only does it make you more productive within your workplace, but it also gives off the sense that you are reliable and organized. When clients ask for something, you will easily have it within reach. 

Clients understandably have many questions before closing the deal, so one of the best ways to answer them is to grab a resource from your utility belt. For example, you're talking to a client about title insurance. Instead of answering their questions yourself, you could take an informative video from your utility belt and ask them to watch it. This makes it easier to understand and relate to.

Having a utility belt is a great way to equip your real estate team for success. It also comes in useful during business transactions. All in all, it's one of the best resources that a real estate team can have.
