Case Study – Bill Byrd – All The Leads Reviews

A lot of interested prospects ask us for All The Leads reviews when they first hear about our service.  It’s often hard to capture the stories we hear every day from our best (and therefore busiest) Subscribers, but Bill was generous enough to take the time needed to set up Skype and do this case study interview with me so you guys can benefit from what he has learned.

Next month Bill will have been with All The Leads for 2 years and, as you will see in the interview, he has done 54 probate deals not including the ones he has sold a second time after renovation and the one he’s living in now.  He gives All The Leads a lot of credit for our complete Probate Lead System but I’ll tell you that his massive success comes from his will to serve and from taking action until he found what worked.  We worked together for months with NO results but he had a long-term mindset and after customizing 3 different letters and shaping his offer to fit his market, his business took off like Elon’s Falcon 9 heavy rocket yesterday.

 

If you are a real estate agent or real estate investor looking for real estate leads and you want to offer a service to your community then you really need to consider becoming a probate expert.  Over the next 40 years over $136 Trillion in assets will pass from one generation to the next and nearly 80% of that wealth is locked up in real estate.  This is an opportunity for you to build a strong pillar in your business while your competition is still out begging for business from the same leads they’ve worked for the past 20 years.  All The Leads provides a system driven by ever-expanding knowledge and experience.  To see how many leads we gather in your county each month click here.

Why You Should NOT Scrub Your Probate Leads…EVER

Let me preface this post by saying we are here to serve the consumer and our Subscribers who trust us to provide probate leads to reach them, and everything we do and suggest is with that in mind first.

A common misconception is that the “deceased last known address” column is the MOST important thing we give you.  I’m here to cast it in stone that it is the LEAST important column in all of the data we give you.  The Personal Representative’s phone number is the MOST important data we give you and their address and the attorney info is close behind.

Because of this misconception, 0ne of the most common things I hear from new Subscribers who are high-analytical is “Well, we need to scrub out list first then we’ll start…” or some variation of it.  I’ve covered this on many Mastermind calls but I realize that we have so much content it sometimes gets buried in the hundreds of hours of archives so I made this video for you:

It’s ultimately up to you how you approach this campaign and how you run your business, but I’ve trained thousands of agents and brokers over the last couple of years and I’ve seen millions of dollars made by those who take our advice, so I’m set in my opinion on this.  Remember, we didn’t ask you or anyone else to sign a contract so everything we teach is to make you successful so you trust our opinion and stick around.  Now get out there and make the world a better place!

Case Study – Rodger Lecy – Probate Leads Subscriber

Rodger Lecy has been working probate leads for real estate listings for a little over a year now.  He was slow to start but once he graduated Probate Mastery he had the confidence to kick his efforts into high gear and now owns this nice in his market.   His first opportunity was on an $8,000,000 farm held in a trust that was handed to him by an attorney who was so impressed with his service to probate clients.  Rodger hasn’t closed the $8,000,000 deal yet because the family isn’t ready but when he does we’re going to need to update this video.  Even without that deal Rodger has done really well and is building momentum each and every day.  He truly has a “provide value first” mindset and is one of the best agents in the country as far as putting the people and their needs ahead of his own interest in listing the real estate.  Here is Rodger’s story…

3 Ways to Find Cash Buyers for Your Probate Listings

Part of what we teach in Probate Fast Track is to build a probate team to help you bring value to clients.  One of the key positions on that team is a reliable cash buyer or many cash buyers who can close quickly when the situation calls for it.  We discuss this often on our weekly Probate Mastermind Call so I thought I’d share 3 ideas that you can implement today to find cash buyers for your probate listings.

 

Conversion Rates for Probate Leads

One of our Subscribers called in this morning with a common concern of those in competitive markets.  He was finding that many of the Personal Representatives on his list have already sold the property and wanted to discuss conversion rates for probate leads.  This happens.  Many families list the property even before the death because they need to dispose of assets to pay for long-term care or they are downsizing or a myriad of other reasons.  Don’t focus on houses you can’t list, this just detracts you from ones you can list.

The good news is, he was blown away that out of 100 calls he has already had 45 conversations which DESTROYS his usual contact rate of 3 per 100 when prospecting expired listing leads.  In the past year our best prospectors have reported a 2:1 contact ratio during the suggested time blocks (Tue/Wed/Thur from 8am-10am and 4pm-7pm) so his findings are in line with theirs.  There is no problem with his leads or his market he just hasn’t found the folks that DO need his help yet.  Successfully listing properties requires diligent effort and discipline…PERIOD.

So, in this week’s Tips from the Trainer we discuss the mindset it takes to succeed and the conversion rates for probate leads when you are diligently prospecting.  Enjoy…

Probate Case Study – Bud Thomsen

Bud is one of our biggest contributors on the Weekly Probate Mastermind call and has graciously volunteered much of his time to talk to other agents and brokers who are considering adding probate as a service niche in their real estate business.  Bud has also done a very good job at becoming a valuable resource in his market by providing a high level of service to families in transition.  Because he has done so well we asked if he could take a few minutes to share his experience with ATL and, not surprisingly, he over-delivered.  Enjoy…

Call A Surviving Spouse When Prospecting Probate Leads for Real Estate?

Have you started prospecting probate leads for real estate?  Several of our newer Subscribers reach out to me after having spent a considerable amount of time talking themselves out of making certain calls.  Often the first hesitation is to call any Personal Representative whose mailing address is the same address as the deceased.  Watch this video to get some idea of why you should call all Personal Representatives who are in the probate process.

If you are currently prospecting probate leads for real estate listings or buying opportunities and need some help please contact us at support@alltheleads.com to set up a time for a 1-on-1 training call or show up to our weekly Probate Mastermind Call to hear what others are doing to get probate listings and get your questions answered.

HANDLING OBJECTIONS TO EARN PROBATE LISTINGS

Handling Objections from Personal Representatives When Prospecting for Probate Listings

As the Co-Founder and Trainer of All The Leads I am constantly talking with our Subscribers about their results when prospecting for probate listings.  One of the most common reports is that they are having success reaching the Personal Representatives of the Estate but when asking about their plans they quickly recoil and ask them to call back in ___ days or ___ months.

If you approach these calls with a “Provide Value First” mindset and you are always thinking “How can I help them with that?” then you WILL find good reasons for nearly every prospect to meet with you.  Watch the video below for more…

For comprehensive training on handling objections and full sales training please take a look at Probate Mastery.  I teach this course once per month in a group setting and we role play through all objections I commonly hear and help our Subscribers with.  In addition to that we spend over an hour on the initial conversation and listing appointment just in Session 3.

If you would like to take the hotseat and role play objections live please join us on the first Wednesday of each month at 2pm EST for our Probate Role Play Call.
