A tool that will grow your business. It is as simple as that. As a seasoned mortgage professional, my day to day business centers around top producing agents. I recently bought 10 copies of THE REAL ESTATE AGENT'S GUIDE TO FSBO'S. The books have been given to my top agents as well as agents who have just began. The feedback I have personally recieved from the book has been overwhelming POSITVE. ALL of them have been able to generate more listings by utilizing the techniques in this book. An easy decision for under twenty dollars!

Summary: Very useful book
Rating: 5

I found this book to be very easy to follow and quite useful. It uses down-to-earth language and doesn't read like a textbook. The author doesn't assume you're an expert, which I found to be reassuring. Useful information even if you employ other sales techniques.
