If someone calls me they have been referred to me and it's a 'warm' call back and voice mail. Their response back to me is 100%. They trust whoever referred me and me as well. Sorry I haven't ever worked 'cold leads' or whatever they're called. Better idea to build your SOI and there are many ways to do that effectively. It does take time but it will happen if you build you SOI consistently.

Just be yourself and share that you are returning their call. Follow-up with a text message, letting them know your availability to chat. Make it simple, informal and sincere.

Easier to tell you what not to do:

1. Don't ask for a calendared appointment. I will block. Time is my most treasured asset. I pick up from 7-7 Pacific and call back in fifteen minutes.

2. Don't lie, don't talk about synchronicity, don't say this will take a second.

3. Don't call from a blocked number or a dialing service that spoofs a number similar to mine

4. Don't say more than 29 words

On the do list:

"Hello (name of person pronounced correctly) this is C. G. Please return my call about your home at: (name of street not number) my phone number is: Thank you."

As a lender I have to give my license, name of company and details.

I don't do cold calls. Who wants a robodialing mortgage lady right now?

My experience is that if the person does not pick up, I will call back after normal work hours. Reason is that most folks wont want to pick up if they are at work. text might work identifying your self. Second call is after 5. if no pick up, no message. Third call is next day. Then this is XXXXX returning your call, Then maybe a call on the weekend. It becomes a trial and error thing. My list of calls grows and not enough time if they do not respond. DELETE and move on.

Good question and maybe we can learn something from those annoying robo calls we get Kyle Scott . I did/do not have a pat answer as every call or reason to call is different.

This area is tainted, and I would not rely on it like we did decades ago. Any tricks, mystique, riddles, genius marketing etc. is suspect by all. Take a more intimate approach. What helps me is looking at it from different perspectives which your question hopefully will garner. Always ask: "what's in it for me" in this case, the person getting the contact.

to get more call backs, make more calls, the more you do the more you find out what works best for you. only way to get more call backs is to make more calls, no magic script, be direct, don't ramble, get to the point...also it is better to have a reason to call that there is a *possibility* they have an interest in, making it a "warm" call and not strictly "cold" call.

Properties here can be complex. Typically when a prospect inquires on a property- most inquires are on properties that appear to be massively below market- and the pictures look great too. What they don't realize is that there is typical a hook- i.e. a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment with balcony for $400k, when the market would be more like $1.3m to start....but the monthly maintenance is $6,000 month on top of any mortgage and the board wants to see a minimum down payment of 50%. So my message will be to call me, and let me explain why this is not likely the home you seek- and I can add a lot of value in the search.

FAQs

What tips can you think of for using voicemail effectively? ›

Focus on a single subject, a single need, and speak directly to how you can solve that need. This is a way to be very specific, concise, and powerful. In fact, we recommend about 30 second-long voicemail messages. If you can get your point across clearly, and in less time than that, terrific.

What is the most professional voicemail message? ›

“Hello! You've reached the voicemail of [your name], [your job title]. I'm currently either away from my desk or on the other line. Please leave your name, telephone number, and a short message after the beep, and I'll be sure to get back to you as soon as I'm available.”

How do you usually leave a message for someone? ›

Even when you already know that someone isn't there, the best way into leaving a message is usually to start by asking for the person who you wanted to speak to, with phrases like: - Caller: “Hello. Can/ Could I speak to…, please?”

Should you leave voicemails? ›

A good voicemail is long enough to cover why you're calling, and your contact information. One of the most common mistakes that reps make while leaving a voicemail is making them too long. There is no reason a voicemail needs to be longer than 20-30 seconds.
