Recruiting Systems: Your Pre-First Visit Package


You know the value of systematizing your recruiting. You’re going to save time and get much better results for your efforts. You also will be able to delegate your recruiting when you’re ready to hire a recruiter or sales malager to do this job. But, to delegate, you have to have your systems in place. In this blog, I’ll show you what goes in a pre-first visit package.

A�Why a Pre-First Visit Package for your Recruit?

The objective of this package is to give background on your company, office, and youa��to differentiate yourselves, to provoke interest in the interviewee, and to educate the candidate to save time in the interview. You can set the stage for expectations for that first interview, too.

A�A�Here are some materials you can include:

  • A�A�A�A�A�A� Your pre-first visit letter
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� An audio from your office featuring your agents
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� A video about your company or office (shows you can assist the agent with video, too)
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� Lists of your web sites for the candidate to review
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� A book on selling real estate successfully (this will save you many hours when youa��re interviewing would-be agents)
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� A company/office/manager brochure
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� Your company folder
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� Qualities of the agents youa��re looking for
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� Your prioritized job description
  • A�A�A�A�A�A� Your training calendar or brochure

A�A�No Worries about the Competition

One of the great things about doing this is that the competition won’t be doing it! So, you don’t have to worry about having the very best pre-first visit package! You will prove to your recruiti that you care about his well-being, that you are prepared, and that you are looking forward to your appointment.
