Because a business broker’s “time” is really their “inventory,” not their listings, successful business brokers consistently find ways to use their time more efficiently. In the first part of this webinar, we will discuss practical methods and forms you can use to minimize the time it takes to convert a listing meeting into a listing. A critical part of that conversion is your ability to overcome objections typically raised by listing prospects. Over a ten-year period, Len has identified 44 of the most common objections (aka “Impediments to Listing”) that we all encounter. These fall into the following 8 categories: personal, listing, fees, experience, financial, buyer, price, and terms. We will discuss specific responses to each objection, including fallback positions, which will result in increased listing conversion percentages, now, or in the future. That, in turn, will generate a much higher potential utilization of your time and increased fees.
