Sample Agent Email
Hi there hope all is well I just found your details on your company website and was looking for an agent to help my family find the perfect property. My name is ____________ and we are looking for (here is where you detail your search criteria). We would like to be under contract within the next ____________ days with hopes of closing in 45 days. We have our financing already secured and are qualified for ________________. Can you let us know; What makes you different from other agents? What kind of properties do you most usually sell? How long have you been in Bahamas Real Estate? Are you the best at your company? Are you full-time? We really want someone who is going to make our search a priority and gets back to us in an efficient manner. We are available to talk more about what we are looking for at (phone number and email) and hope to hear back soon. Send this same email to all the agents you identified as having potential and wait for the responses. More often than not the first one to respond is probably the most efficient. It’s amazing how we don’t interview the professionals we are paying to do business with. This is possibly the biggest transaction of your life, you don’t want to leave to a rookie you want a pro on the job.
