“Prospects like to lease from people they like.” Sure, this is true...sorta. But it is way too shallow and simplistic. Prospects lease where they find the best VALUE! When it comes to leasing, renters are not looking for a friend. It works better when they like you, but here is the hard truth; prospects will rent even when they don’t like you if they perceive you as the better VALUE!
This webinar will demonstrate how to create a positive relationship by communicating value in an FEP manner. Leasing is all about relationship building, but it comes across as most genuine when you also solve a problem, scratch an itch, and bring value!
What the heck is FEP? It's magic! Watch this webinar to find out.
