create steady agent to agent referral streamOne of the most untapped opportunities in real estate is effectively working the massive income generation in agent-to-agent referrals. It is not enough to be managing one database, but agents should be managing four separate databases.

Sphere of influence ( P2P ), Business owners, service providers ( B2B ), Suspects and prospects (Leads) and the fourth being agent to agent database.

This week I want to share how so many of my coaching clients are crushing the agent-to-agent database and generating six figure income streams annually from just this one opportunity. The benefits of mastering this opportunity are endless.

People are relocating all the time, they are higher quality referral leads, easier personal client to deal with and you become the go to person for agent referrals in your market area if it is worked right! So, let’s get started….

Step 1. Research where they are coming from?

Take some time to look at the data and see where they are coming from when it comes to your market area. Here are some resources that will help the research and identify the sources for your specific trading area: Be strategic with your targeting of referral agents and find where they are coming from first.

Step 2. Find the agents and offices where they are coming from

Once you know the agents and offices where they're coming from, assemble your database.

FACT the last 16 years we know 60% on average each year come within 60-mile radius that did business with our brokerage. Hence targeting the offices and agents first within that region makes the most sense. Find the agents, offices, brands that don’t have a relationship in your area, find their contact information ( name, email, mailing address, mobile), assemble a database. Great resource to get some excellent inexpensive help with all this work is using a virtual assistant

Step 3. Place the database into a contact management system.
