How do you know if your clients really love you? Are you using client surveys to find out? Most agents aren’t. Recently, I did a webinar for the National Association of Realtors’ Learning Library on “Getting to Yes”. One of the questions I asked during this webinar was:
Do you use a written customer satisfaction survey after closing? The choices for answers were:
Yes, and survey once or more during the sales process
Should You Care What they Think?
About three quarters of the respondents never or only sometimes used a customer satisfaction survey after closing. On the other side of the tracks, five percent used a survey once or more during the sales process. So, only about a quarter of the agents surveyed consistently used the customer survey tool to gauge customer satisfaction levels, make changes as needed—and create long-term loyalty.
Our Industry is Far Behind in Customer Service
Every time you go into a restaurant, you get surveyed. Every time you take your car in to get it serviced, you get surveyed. I’ll bet you can think of a myriad of other services and products that survey. Yet, our industry has lagged decades behind others in caring about—and responding to consumer needs. In fact, the California Association of Realtors’ survey on overall satisfaction with agent used showed that a whopping 4% of clients were satisfied!!!! (See the graph below:)
