“A few weeks ago, I went on a listing presentation…and it went very well; however I was competing with another agent. The sellers informed me that they were going to hire me but last minute decided to go with the other agent. I was very disappointed and knew I could do a great job for them, so I immediately set them up to receive a PIP every 7 days. A few weeks later the owner called me and told me that they really appreciated my follow up and enjoyed what I had been sending them and decided to go forward with listing with me instead of the other agent…I truly feel that is what helped me to win back this listing!”  
~ Kim D., Broker

“About a month ago, I received a call from a client whom I had 3 previous transactions with…They contacted me from an email they had just received from me… the Property Investment Profile. She had planned on using relocation but wanted me as her agent.  Thanks for the $1,285,000 listing, PIP!! It’s possible that my name or our company may not have come to her mind without the PIP in her mailbox every 30 days for the last 3 years.”
~ Michael B., Broker
