When you’re setting up your schedule, why is it crucial to uphold your prospecting time? How do you communicate this to clients for clear boundaries? On this episode, we share insights on these questions, talk about success with expired leads and working with ISAs.
Protect your prospecting time like you protect your listing appointments. That is your money. -Greg McDaniel
Takeaways + Tactics
If you’re not expecting to take the listing the first time, it’s okay to get appointments that aren’t solid because you just want to get face time with the seller.
To succeed with expired leads, you need the skills to make calls. New agents can’t acquire them quickly enough to make it work.
You need to do lead gen to the point where you feel you have a pipeline going, so you’re not roped into overcommitting.
At the start of the episode, we shared on ISAs and how they are connected to an agent’s listing appointment structure. Next we talked about the importance of protecting your prospecting time and communicating that to clients. We went on to share the struggles that new agents can face with expired leads, and lead gen plans going into the new year.

The way you deal with clients is subconsciously affected by your lead gen. If you don’t have a steady pipeline of clients, you operate under the fear of rejection and possibly losing a client. To solve this, stick to your prospecting schedule, so you don’t get roped into doing things you wouldn’t do if you had that pipeline. People will only know what you tell them, so the secret to controlling clients is establishing the boundaries that protect your prospecting, early in the relationship.
