2010 CAR Expo: “Top Producers Panel”
Top Producers Marie Chung, Bob Wolff and John McMonigle addressed a standing-room-only audience of brokers at the California Association of Realtors (CAR) Expo 2010 in Anaheim, CA. Some key points they mentioned:
Marketing & Client Relations
McMonigle and Wolff farm within a 3-mile radius of their respective Newport Beach and Dana Point offices, while Chung’s team of 58 agents covers 5 counties including Los Angeles and Orange.
McMonigle uses electronic/new media and traditional print/ad marketing tactics, as well as properties such as M Magazine. His company has also invested in a CRM from Salesforce.
Chung also uses electronic/new media and traditional print/ad marketing tactics, and is launching a new website with CRM integration with a Salesforce-based, real-estate-specific system. As a broker-owner, she focuses on securing many agents to hold open houses for maximum exposure through multiple networks. She also speaks at many industry conferences in order to maintain the crucial relationships with bank clients for future business, which she feeds to her agents.
All three Top Producers leverage their marketing and support staff, delegating all but the exceptional sales functions that are unique to their success.
Adjusting to Market Conditions
Top Producers are working more diligently to compensate for economic conditions; for example, Chung’s team at Modern Realty brainstorms on a daily basis to produce creative marketing tactics to maintain the 200% productivity level they’ve enjoyed historically. McMonigle’s company has expanded this year to touch 25,000 prospects in an attempt to maintain its productivity level. Wolff continues his relationship building with his former clients (community influencers who refer the majority of his business) and diligently spends focused energy on new prospects based on a strategy called the Dollar Productive method.
