A listing presentation can say a lot about an agent and their personality. Read below as we identify five types of agents and what their listing presentations might look like.

The “Dynasty Era” Agent (Old School). They’ve been in the industry for 30 years, know their listing process, and they’ve always scheduled a 2 ½ hour time block for an extensive listing presentation. Much of their presentation centers on them, their success, client testimonials, and a gratuitous pic of them with their dog or their luxury automobile.  They bring good marketing information, market stats, and still use the listing flip-book binder that they began with in 1984.  Much of the visuals are still stock-photos, or Microsoft clip-art from Windows
