Use Your Weekend to Earn Referrals This Autumn

Oct 18, 2018 by

Autumn has finally arrived and Halloween is fast approaching! This time of the year presents plenty of opportunities to up your referral business. This month, there will be hayrides and harvest festivals—not to mention the Halloween cards and candies you can send out to clients. Here are some of the best ways you can reach out this autumn and remind your clients why you’re the top agent in town:

Throw a Halloween party.

From bobbing for apples to costume contests, who doesn’t love a good Halloween party? There’s no need to go overboard with the decorations, and you could even host it at your office—but be sure to give out your business card with the candy! Also, add personal touches to the affair, like a branded backdrop that guests can pose in front of—others will see what a great agent you are when photos are shared on social media.

Attend a fall event.

In addition to hayrides and harvest festivals, there’s apple picking, haunted attractions, corn mazes—a seemingly endless list of activities you can attend during fall. No matter where you live, you’ll likely be able to get yourself to an event where you’ll have the chance to meet and introduce yourself to potential clients.

Give out some goodies.

Whether it’s a Halloween card or candy, be sure to show all of your clients some love this month by sending out some goodies. Most people don’t expect to receive many surprise gifts around this time of the year, before the holiday season is in full swing. Receiving one from their real estate agent will only make it that much more special.

How you reach out to your former or potential clients is less important than the gesture of actually reaching out—that’s what’ll be remembered further down the road. Stay on top of follow-ups throughout the year with different gifts and fun events, and always be sure to remind them to refer you to their friends and family.

Agents, how are you reaching out to clients this autumn?

It’s Easy Being Green: How to Add This Year’s Hottest Hues of Green to Your Décor

This year in home decor, green is really having a moment. Far from being a short-lived trend, however, this verdant color is definitely here to stay. Luckily for us, green goes with just about everything, and it’s easy to incorporate into any room of your home.

Add some life.

The simplest way to add green into your home decor is with botanicals, which blend effortlessly into any color scheme. Place a cluster of potted succulents on the coffee table, and fill that empty corner behind the sofa with a statement fiddle leaf fig tree. In spaces that lack sufficient natural light for live plants, consider faux varieties. With advances in manufacturing techniques, many artificial plants look just as convincing as the real thing and require no maintenance.

Accessorize.

In rooms with a neutral color palette, use green accessories to add a pop of color or texture. Swap out existing window treatments with curtains featuring botanical leaf prints or patterns. Layer throw pillows and blankets on the living room sofa. Avoid choosing all solid color pillows as the effect can be a bit flat; instead opt for complementary patterns and textures for a fresh, updated look.

Style your bookcase or end table with a vibrant emerald centerpiece bowl, or intersperse green vases with on-trend marble decor on the console table for a chic, of-the-moment look. For a bolder statement, consider a kelly-green statement wall, palm print wall decals, or a luxe velvet sofa in a rich olive hue.

Mix it up.

Beyond neutral palettes, green works beautifully in any number of color schemes. Many shades mix easily with black and white; use this combination for a classic, timeless aesthetic. Juxtapose a muted lime green with pops of red, orange, and yellow for a playful, energized space. Paler hues mix well with pastels or jewel tones offer a rich, vibrant look.
