This is a difficult  question. Why?

These 'one thing' questions are invalid by their very nature.

For example. direct response marketing is very productive. But to be productive it must be attached to an asset. 

So which 'one thing' is more important, creating expectational expertise in local market trends or access to the homeowners mailbox?

Relying on one tool would be a mistake. I know that is not your intent. Much of our business comes from past clients, friends, family…basically…sphere of influence. So, I guess the best sales method or tool is not to alienate everyone that you encounter.

I'm going to assume because you use the term "marketing/sales tool", you actually mean #1 lead gen source. If so, my #1 lead gen source is my website. It is the only product that consistently brings me business and is worth  every penny I pay for it.

Great question Andy!

Without a doubt, my greatest tool for the past 25 years hasn't changed.

As a Realtor, mortgage loan officer, real estate investor, and entrepreneur, the one tool that has made me more money is my DATABASE!
