Structuring Your Tour

Thursday, June 08, 2017

Most of us have experienced leaving a room with a purpose in mind only to arrive in the new room empty-minded; we blame distraction, fatigue, age, ADHD or all of the above. Recent research from the University of Notre Dame proves that walking through a doorway tends to make people forget. It's normal and somewhere between widespread and universal. It's even true with "virtual tours." It's the doorway that matters, not the door, so the old trick of removing doors in model units may make rooms look bigger, but it won't help recall.

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Planning ahead means developing smart questions that will help you uncover a prospect’s most important needs. Open ended questions start with Who, What, Where, Why, How and When.
