Hi and welcome to your Weekly Salestip for [date] 

The secret of referral and repeat business is strength of character.

Many salespeople make the mistake of attempting to open doors on personality alone. True, personality and rapport building skills are essential to winning business. There is however one other attribute, which plays are big part in building your business - Your character!

Without a strong character, built on honesty and integrity it soon becomes apparent that your sole intention is to merely win the business! Sure some of the time this works, however if the business is not transacted with hard work and honesty the potential for referral and repeat business could be lost.

We work with many salespeople who have built their business on hard work, honesty and professionalism. These people have the work ethic to focus on the task at hand, avoid senseless gossip and act courageously if they are presented with an issue which requires attention. It is fantastic to see these people reach incredible heights and build their businesses to the next level.

 Everyone has this ability - we sometimes need to be reminded and the start of a new year is an appropriate time to bring true professionalism into your craft. Make the time this week to call those past clients who have benefited from your expertise and integrity and see who they might know who needs Real Estate assistance.

You may be pleasantly surprised by the positive response to these calls - and without a doubt some of them will lead to business.
