Relationship Selling with Pipedrive

What is relationship selling?

Genuine relationships are front and centre when it comes to building a successful real estate business.

Relationship selling is when you sell yourself, not your product. Naturally your product will always be an element of every sale you make, but when you take the focus away from the price and performance of the product and put it on the interpersonal relationship you have with the client, that is relationship selling.

It is widely understood that it costs less to win repeat business and retain the clients you have, then it does to go out and find new clients. This is why relationship selling plays such a vital role in real estate.

It is all about building an understanding between you and the client and creating an environment of mutual respect.


Here are some of the key factors that are involved in relationship selling:

1.       Communication

It sounds simple enough, but you need to have open and honest communication with your clients. You don’t want them to be passed off from person to person within your business. It should be the one point of contact throughout the entire process to help them feel valued and taken care of.

2.       Empathy

Empathy is one of those key traits that will get you far in life – both personal and professional. Understanding their needs and supporting them goes a long way in building a lasting relationship.

Of course, maintaining relationships in this way isn’t easy in a business. With leads coming in from a number of different platforms and being managed by different people within the business, it can be hard to know exactly where you are up to.

This is where Pipedrive and Motii come into the picture. Together, they have built the best CRM for real estate relationship selling, allowing you to nurture clients every step of the way.
