The Little Things Matter When Selling to Clients

The Ritz Carlton in the Cayman Islands was an incredibly expensive condo. The developer was very successful in the early days of development and I asked him how he was able to pre-sell half of this very costly building. He told me that it was the weirdest thing. He was on Seven Mile Beach in the Cayman Islands and he decided he would get up really early to create small hut and stand in it. There was nothing more to it.

Toyota’s Customer Follow Up

The Punta Mita Four Seasons Experience

The Punta Mita Four Seasons Experience

An example of a great sales office experience is the Punta Mita Four Seasons. They have three sales reps that each earn over $1 million a year in commission selling the most expensive real estate in Mexico. There have been a number of highly publicized murders of foreign tourists in Mexico and you’d think that would make selling real estate a challenge, but it doesn’t stop these guys.

The Discovery Process (The Best Timeshare Sales Team Ever)

Abercrombie & Kent is well known for putting together very expensive safaris and other outrageous trips. After many years of success, they decided to create a real estate division with 10 highly paid timeshare salespeople to sell what they called a “private residents club.” These were like timeshares, except much more expensive.
