This special audio episode features Aaron Wittenstein, KW agent in Westchester NY and founder of the popular Facebook group Lead Gen Scripts & Objections.
Aaron and Greg talk expired listing prospecting, which makes up around 40% of Aaron's business, and do some live role play, including a section where Greg plays a "Jerk" expired listing and Aaron overcomes the objections to set the appointment.
