2 More Calls From Our Direct Mail Campaign

Posted on 22. Jan, 2010 by in Commercial Real Estate Brokers, Direct Marketing Campaign, Finding Apartment Buildings, Multi-Units/Apartment Buildings



Woohoo! We got 2 more calls in from our direct mail campaign of 278 folks.

The next call we got, I had already gotten my wisdom teeth out so I was in no condition to answer the phone. So I let it go to voice mail. His voice mail message went a little something like this:

“Oh Carey. It sounds like you’re a woman, that’s good because if you were a man I would have been pretty angry. So you want to buy my property? Do you know anything about it? Do you know how much land it has? Anyway, you can call me back at this number.”

What the heck is going on with these folks? lol Does someone wanna tell me? I’ve always told other women that it’s an asset in this business (actually any type of sales related venture or in-person type of business, I think it’s a huge asset to being a woman.)




Then today we got another call. Again, I can’t really talk too well, especially when I’m doped up on my pain meds. So it went to voice mail as well. His message went a little something like this:

“My name is blah blah blah and you don’t know me because you sent the letter to this company name, which is the name of the company that holds some of my property. I don’t know if you’re looking for a single family home or what? But I have 2 apartment buildings and I’d be willing to talk to you about selling them but I’m not trying to give them away. Call me at this number or I will call you back this evening.”

Sooo that one was a little better, huh? Making some progress. I think I’m going to have to tweak my letters a wee bit. I’m using Dave Lindahl’s letters straight from his course, but I may have to say I want to buy your Apartment Building instead of just your Property! Wouldn’t ya’ll agree??

Anyway, I gave Kathy the bad news that she’s going to have to call these 2 folks back. She’s having a slight panic attack. Mostly because she doesn’t know what to say and I informed her but at least you can speak normally right now lol plus I told her that I don’t know what to say either. We just gotta follow the script from the book. I am must better on my toes than her, but oh well…..there’s gonna be times where she’s gonna have to make calls too and now is one of them.

I did look up everyone’s property information that called us though. They are mostly 2 to 6 units. Not all that exciting for us, but heck I’m still gonna call (or make Kathy call) because it’s practice.

Plus, get this. When Kathy was a little kid her father owned an apartment building but his wife at the time made him sell it. Anyway, we drove by there today and it’s for sale!!! I just looked up that info on the MLS too. We’re probably gonna check that out too.

So I’m super psyched about everything that’s moving along and I can’t wait to not look like a chipmunk anymore and to be able to eat properly, talk properly and not be in pain, because I got things to do!

We had to move our Cash Flow Game session from tonite til tomorrow nite because I’m just not quite feeling up to it yet. Kathy assures me that I should start to feel better tomorrow. We shall see?

Now, I’m about to pass out as I just took an oxycodone. I’m surprised I’m not so loopy and that I could actually make this post.

:-) Over and out for now…….I’m off to la la land.

P.S. I almost forgot, we heard back from 2 commercial real estate brokers. We’re gonna meet one of them either on Monday or Tuesday and the other one we’re still waiting to hear from.
