Richard Vaughn has over 23 years of serving the Orlando Florida real estate market and recently turned to Home Value Leads to help with his home seller lead generation. Richard has seen tremendous success using the Home Value Leads platform to help him generate listing leads, and he’s agreed to share his story and some tips with us.
HVL: Richard, thank you so much for talking to us today. Can you please let our readers know how long have you been a Home Value Leads client and what kind of results have you seen?
Richard: Absolutely. I have been a client with Home Value Leads since January [of 2016]. As of the beginning of May, I have generated over 500+ total listing leads with about 25% of those being complete leads. Most of the leads came in between mid-January and mid-March, and then I slowed it down during April to be able to keep up with the activity. I have had several of these listing leads turn into appointments and I have one closed listing deal already.
HVL: That’s great Richard! What other lead generation strategies have you used and how do they compare to Home Value Leads?
Richard: It’s important for people to understand that Home Value Leads is not the complete strategy. I use Home Value Leads in conjunction with direct mail, door knocking, social media, and email. Home Value Leads is a part of all of these strategies for generating listing leads for me.
HVL: What is your follow-up strategy with these leads?
Richard: My number one rule is to call them ASAP! The listing lead that just sold in April told me that she was impressed that I contacted her within minutes of submitting the home value request online.
HVL: Why do you think some agents are successful with our platform while others are not?
Richard: You have to believe it’s possible. You have to do the activity and not be afraid to contact people. You have to train on how to do presentations and how to close. Automated systems alone will not convert many people into clients.
HVL: Great advice Richard. Now, if you could give agents ONE piece of advice that would enhance their online lead generation and conversion, what would it be?
Richard: Try lots of variations until you find something that works. A slight change in copy or offer can make a difference. And call the leads ASAP.
HVL: Thank you Richard for all of the helpful tips. We appreciate you sharing this with us and allowing us to share with our audience.
