In order to make these scripts and audio file a comprehensive learning experience, you’re going to hear or read what to say and do when the person you’re calling doesn’t have a lead. You can listen to the audio file, read the script or read from the script as you hear the audio.

Calling Your Sphere of Influence
Hi, Carol? (PAUSE) This is Mark Daniels calling from Sunshine Realty. (PAUSE) Right. Hey, I’m calling because I’m working on building my business. In the process of doing that, I’ll probably need the support of some of the people I know best. Would it be alright if I contacted you from time to time? (PAUSE) Great. I appreciate that. Well I was wondering; of all the people you know, who might be the next person interested in buying or selling real estate in the next few months? (DOUBLE PAUSE) Nobody jumps to mind right now? That’s fine. Would you do me a big favor and ask around the office, neighborhood, club, etcetera, to see who might be looking? (PAUSE) That would be terrific. And if I don’t talk with you about this before hand, I’ll give you a call back next month! Thank you for your time Carol.

Hi, this is Mark Daniels with Sunshine Realty. (PAUSE) Yes, that’s right. Hey, I’m calling because I am very excited about a new listing we have in our office. It’s a fantastic home and I’m excited about finding a buyer for it. It’s a four-bedroom, three-bath ranch on Lake Emma. Great home for entertaining, with an entire wall of oversized sliders that open up to the screened pool and lakefront back yard. Who can you think of that might be interested? (PAUSE) That’s fine. Well, if it’s okay, I’d like to send you a post card about the home, and if you happen to think of someone, would you give me a call? (PAUSE) Great. Thank you. You know, aside from that listing, I’m always interested in any new prospects. Of all the people you know, who would be the next to move? (PAUSE) Can’t think of anybody right now? Well, I appreciate your time! If it’s okay, I’ll give you a call next month. In the meantime, would you ask around and call me if you hear of someone? (PAUSE) I appreciate your help. Take care now. Bye.
