We’ll share practical, proven tips and techniques for: * understanding client needs * preparing a presentation * assembling presentation aids * capitalizing on the all-important first contact * creating a listing presentation * building a buyer presentation * and much more.

Closing the Deal Wednesday, March 2, 2011, 2PM Pacific Time  

Today’s real estate market can be very challenging. You spend countless hours putting a deal together, working with all parties involved and it falls apart at the last minute. It leaves you exhausted, frustratedand disappointed. We’ll discuss tips, tools and resources for understanding sellers, working with buyers and ways to manage customer expectations before, during and after the sale. We’ll also review some negotiation pointers.
