Spring has almost sprung, the Parade of Homes is right around the corner, and the housing market in the Treasure Valley is primed for a blockbuster selling season. What can you do besides buckle up for the ride? We’ve put together a few ideas that will prime you for your best season yet.
Sign up for a class
Our classes range from the basics of mortgage mechanics to agent self-defense. They’re offered year-round, but now is a great time to brush up on topics like government loans and home equity conversions. Most sessions are free, and it’s easy to book your spot online.
Say hello to your contact list
Instead of scrambling to send out an email during mid-June, why not plan your CRM touchpoints for the next few months? A few emails go a long way in maintaining client relationships.
