The industries of both a realtor and a mover often are intertwined, because they both have the same basic goal: helping someone through the process of transitioning to a new home. Both industries also get a large percentage of new customers the same way: through referrals. Being so closely related, a realtor and professional mover can each help the other out by creating a relationship as well as the beginnings of a network that will increase referrals. Here’s how a realtor can benefit from partnering with a mover.
Partnering with a mover becomes a selling tool. Word will spread about your network of support, and people will want to buy or sell a home with someone who can help them throughout the entire process of their journey. Realtors get customers through the referral process. How can you get more referrals? By helping your customers through the hardest part of getting a new home: the moving process. Sometimes taking the extra step is the key to impressing your clients and making them rave about your service.
Your business as a realtor is to satisfy your clients. If you have the right relationship with them, they won’t see you as just their realtor. They’ll expect you to know everything from the best restaurants to the best stores to the best mover. Considering they need help throughout the whole process of relocating, your clients will appreciate having you as a source of knowledge. The best thing you can do for them is to have connections in the industry to please them throughout every step of the way.
By collaborating with a mover, you will have the opportunity to make your clients happy with every aspect of moving, even after they have left your hands. Show your clients that you care about their overall happiness and satisfaction by guiding them into hands you trust to finalize their moving experience. You’ll end up making customers happier about the whole process and they’ll remember you as the only realtor they’ll ever use.
Choosing a mover can be risky, considering their work can end up reflecting you. This can either be good or bad for you, depending on the mover you choose. Look up company movers’ reviews and ask around for recommendations. Eventually, you’ll have to give someone a try. If you’re hesitant to give your full trust to a mover, as you should be for your own protection, start slowly. Test the company out and see how satisfied your clients are with their work. Once you know you like their work, start referring them to all your clients and build that relationship.
