Real Estate Brokers Benefitting Clients & Making Money!
There are literally too many sales to document here. However we have mentioned a few to show you that no matter where you are, no matter what kind of commercial real estate you deal in, and no matter how you do business, there is now a way to increase your opportunities. In a Training and Orientation Program that we provide all new members, we will show you how to "mine" information that can make you money. The first in areas are reporting big results.
The ICI World Network believes that real estate brokers and salespeople make sales . . . not the internet. Unlike amazon.com which sells books on the internet, real estate is sold by people to people. It is very much a relationship business and one should build relationships to do business.
A good example was Sales Representative with Coldwell Banker. Someone called on his one listing on ICIWorld. It did not suit him. They discussed that prospects situation and ended up that he sold that prospects property and collected $150,000 in commissions on February 8, 2001!
It is not the listings that are important, it is the people!
The internet and information services help provide the connection and introduction in a timely fashion. This vital link has helped the following brokers do what they do best . . . serve their clients.
More sales that we heard about recently: An independent broker at Coldwell Banker looked for a member. He found one who subsequently had a tenant for a building that he had and they leased it. Thousands of dollars in one phone call. In that sense it is another referral network.
An independent broker, was sitting at home, cruising on ICIWorld, did a key word search for power (for power of sales) found one. He got together with a Re/Max agent and sold it within 3 days of finding it. It was a 25 unit power of sale.
$239,000 in commissions with a Sutton Group Sales
Another was a successful lead for an auction that netted a broker 5 figures
A Re/Max broker double ended a $1.2M motel. Has now sold 2 more to buyers from Europe.
One of the largest sales on the internet presently being worked on now is $80M and it is going through various approvals in California.
There are many more sales but these are some of them.
One of the more powerful features is the ability to print out a list of buyers. This is very effective when used in a listing presentation. It is the power of an industry to help you in your individual affairs. One broker attributes 7 deals to the powerful listing presentation. Printing out statistics in color shows 70 countries of the world. In a listing presentation this is very powerful. Where there are a lot of buyers, print them out. It too is a powerful listing tool that can be the difference between getting a listing and not getting a listing . . . between making money and not making money.
And this is all . . . the beginning!
One independent broker had a $1,000,000 property on the service. He received an email from Geneva Switzerland and after a while of going back and forth with email and eventually showing the property, sold it. The accountant customer had received the golden handshake from his firm and was returning to his home country. Not only did the broker sell the property that was on ICI World but he later he sold the family a home for $500,000.
The Market ICI World
Commercial Real Estate World Network
Contacts make . . . contracts!
Until you start doing what we call "The Ultimate in Marketing on the Internet" you really have not arrived on the internet. Every new member receives a ten point training program to ensure they know how to best market your property. It literally is the difference between doing deals . . . and not doing deals. We are able to demonstrate this during the training session!
One independent broker competed successfully against a major large broker to obtain a listing that he subsequently sold. The seller was having trouble deciding who to list with and when the member of this service presented the ICI World service they listed with him.
