Straightforward and Solid Feb. 4 2007
By Anne Murray-Randolph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently received this book to review it for my magazine, lore. I get a lot of real estate books, and I read them all, but this one really beats most. The information is logical, solid, actionable, and the book is highly readable. I was recently at a luxury real estate gathering and heard a terrific coach, Jennifer Cummings talk about precisely the same things that are in this book. I highly recommend it, and in fact am ordering a number of copies to send to other people. Don't miss it!

Direct Marketing for More Profitable Property Sales Jan. 15 2007
By Mike T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Major advertisers have paid millions for Lois's advice on direct marketing. Hundreds of small businesses have also used her strategies because she shows them how to use their size as a strength. I've seen it myself. The difference between success and failure is developing a personal relationship and Lois knows how you can "out friendly" your competitors. You don't need a huge budget to stand out.

As the real estate market slows down, agents who can cost effectively generate referrals and build new relationships will thrive. Blanketing your neighborhood with generic, non personal appeals won't make the phone ring and is too costly these days.

Read this book and learn how one new mailing can pull 10x more than another one, just due to the offer. How bad lists can sink even the best appeal. How to inject your unique personality into all your communications. What really makes people respond...

Lois writes in an easy-to-read style, full of humor and anecdotes. Her advice is empowering and practical. Don't wait for your competitors to read this book!

Sold! is helps build sales! Feb. 23 2007
By Business Owner in Florida - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
SOLD is a must read for the professional real estate agent, and also for both the new and experienced sellers. Lois writes like a friend to the reader when she spells out exactly what should be expected from an agent. It is a wonderful guide ...even supplying pages for the readers' questions and comments along with names, addresses and web sites of RE people for any further info. Very good illustrations, too.

Direct Marketing for the Real Estate Pro July 16 2007
By Graham Millward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book! If you are new to real estate and know nothing about marketing you may find it helpful. For experienced realtors - forget it! The information was very basic and much of it not related to real estate. I was hoping to learn about lots of specific direct marketing techiques and products that were proven to generate an abundance of good, cost effective buyer and seller leads, unfortunately this book does not do that.
