“How To Get More Appointments On The Phone Without Answering A Single Question”
Dear Real Estate Professional,
I invite you to consider that you can get more appointments every time you make a call and every time you answer your phone, simply by not answering a single question. You may now be thinking, “If I don’t answer a question, how can I be helpful?”. The short answer is you don’t want to be helpful until they are your client, but there is more to it than that.
I’m sure you will find not answering questions is actually being more HELPFUL than ever before.
Control The Conversation And Bring Them To Your Office
The first step to getting more appointments when you are on the phone is answering questions. Certainly, most real estate agents, allow the person calling to start answering questions. When you are answering questions you have the chance to be rejected AND you don’t know where the conversation is heading.
Whether you are getting leads from sign calls, magazine ads, or your website, one of the most common questions that gets asked by buyers is “what is the price of the home?”.
Instead of answering this question (which often leads to them hanging up), I invite you to consider putting yourself in immediate control! Instead of answering their question, simply state the following:
“Great, thanks for calling, let me look that home up for you.”
That simple statement will give you the opportunity to STOP answering questions and start asking.
A Good Telephone Script Leads The Buyer To The Only Right Next Step…Meeting With You
Now, that you know you don’t have to answer questions anymore, the next step is to start asking questions that lead the buyer to the logical conclusion of coming to meet with you. Before we dive into questions that will lead to appointments, it’s important to understand what questions are absolute disasters. Here are a few things to AVOID asking about when you want them to actually come and meet with you.
- Questions about the number of bedrooms
- Questions about the neighborhood they want to live in
- Questions about what they can afford
Questions such as the above actually give the buyer little reason to want to meet with you! When you want more appointments from your phone calls, it is important to ask thought provoking questions where you are viewed as the person who has the answer.
Consider questions that reveal the following:
- Questions that demonstrate they have options they didn’t know about (additional neighborhoods, loan options, etc)
- Questions that demonstrate your process saves them time
- Questions that demonstrate your service saves them money
Getting more appointments from your phone calls isn’t about giving someone your resume and saying how “great” you are, rather it’s about demonstrating that you are there to help them.
Unfortunately you can’t just say “I am here to help you”. Asking questions that help them to understand you are there for them will bring them right to your office!
