Whether you are a new agent, just joining the field of real estate, or you are a veteran agent, looking for a change, you might be curious on where KW Memorial and KW Energy Corridor stand with floor time / property desk.
Many real estate companies make it mandatory for agents to do property desk, because the office needs that administrative role filled. Other companies make their agents pay for the opportunity to answer calls from prospective clients. Still others feel the concept is outdated and not worth an agent’s time, so they are dropping it altogether.
KW Energy Corridor and KW Memorial don’t fall into any of these categories. We make floor time free and voluntary! If one of our agents wants the opportunity for connection with potential clients and gathering leads, we give it to them. Most of our agents find this time valuable!
Whether you participate in floor time or not, the fact that we offer this as a free, voluntary service to our agents is a benefit to you and anyone who affiliates with us. When potential clients call KW Memorial or KW Energy Corridor, they immediately connect with a real agent who can answer their questions and help them feel at ease. Our size is a benefit, also! Lots of agents translates to lots of exposure to potential clients.
We feel that floor time is still valuable, whether you’re answering phone calls or speaking with people who walk in the door. As long as you are friendly and full of knowledge, offering this service to potential clients is invaluable. Anyone can turn to the internet and Google for answers to questions, but the knowledge that these potential clients can attain from an actual Houston real estate agent, in person or over the phone, is service on a whole other level!
Beverly Marshall is an agent with us at KW Energy Corridor, and she finds floor time to be valuable for her business. She says, “I think floor time is a valuable benefit in that agents who do it can, conceivably, get leads they otherwise would not get. It also gets agents familiar with the housing inventory that’s available.”
Gina Fisher is a KW Memorial agent who knows firsthand how opportunistic property desk can be! She said, “I always take advantage of my property desk opportunity. The first clients I gained from property desk referred me to two of their friends! You never know when that million dollar call will come in.”
