Converting online buyer leads into appointments is a crucial skill that can set you apart in the real estate business. Here are three effective tips to enhance your approach and increase your chances of securing those vital appointments.

2. Craft a compelling script. While the ability to speak impromptu is valuable, having a well-crafted script as a foundation can keep the conversation focused and purposeful. Create a script that includes a warm and engaging introduction, a clear value proposition, and a call to action to schedule an appointment. Keep a list of talking points in front of you during the call, allowing for adjustments based on the lead’s responses. Personalize the conversation to establish a genuine connection and build the trust necessary for securing the appointment.

3. Build rapport. Building rapport is the cornerstone of successful sales calls. Ask open-ended questions that encourage the lead to share more about their preferences and priorities. Instead of rushing through your list, take the time to ask, pause, and listen. This not only makes the person feel heard and understood but also provides valuable insights to help you serve them better. Establishing a connection through rapport is key to gaining trust and increasing the likelihood of securing an appointment.
