"Having those conversations with those folks or if it's something that has just recently sold. Hey, this is Jimmy Burgess with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Beach Properties of Florida. We just sold the house four doors down from you. Not sure if you saw the details of this, but it's absolutely going to affect the value of your property. Did you get those details? This leads into conversations and allows us to find those opportunities for not only buyer leads, but also for potential listings as well." - Jimmy Burgess
