The process of lead nurturing can be one of the most rewarding aspects of any sales job, but especially in commercial real estate. By the time you have a signed lease in hand, You've had to search for prospects, built relationships, negotiation lease terms, execute a letter of intent, all before a signature is on the final contract. Prospecting and nurturing leads is really the only way your business grows.
But the process of lead nurturing can be a long and winding road in this business. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with all of the tasks you need to get completed - and sometimes that means a hot lead could accidentally slips through the cracks.
