Client relationships have a life span.

"My Company used to get corporate clients from the American multi-national banks but now the human resource department has appointed one of the big boys," lamented a realtor of a  small realty firm.

He was assured of a few prospective expatriate tenants per month for the past two years. He could relax. Now he has nothing to do at the office.  

Advertisements on behalf of owners did not elicit much if any response from co-broking agents or expatriates. This will also be a common scenario in the year 2000 as realtors with prospective clients nowadays contact Owners direct via the internet database.

"We use the big boys because they promise us after-sales services." a human resource manageress of a global mobile telecommunications company told me frankly when I met her to get the tenancy agreement signed for a Swedish employee who happened to contact me and liked the condo I showed her.  From experience, I knew it would be futile to ask the manageress for some cases, but somehow I did ask her and got the feedback.  

Another big mobile telecommunications company lady told me that in the year 2000, all expat rentals will be handled by a expatriate relocation agency when I phoned to ask for advice as the person in charge of expatriates was giving me a difficult time since the Japanese expat had not used the company's panel of realtors.

By outsourcing, there will be no need to appoint any panel of realtors and no headaches and expenses for the human resource department.  I was an outside realtor and that would be my last and only case.

What do you do if your agency which used to be on the panel loses your steady income from corporate clients?  Much depends on your energy, hunger  and vision.

As we move into the new millennium, there will be a big change in realtor-client relationships.  Big realty firms will always have the advantage as they have the brand name, the superior manpower and money.  Big multi-nationals may outsource their expatriate rentals to expatriate placement companies or consultants who may have their own realty firms to service the relocating expatriates.

Therefore, as a self-employed realtor, it may be tough to compete against  the big firms. It is best you build up excellent client relationships with a large number of individual expatriates who prefer personalised and efficient and prompt services.  Referrals may be all you need to keep busy if you are a sole operator.

Be aware of the incredible power of the Internet.  Relocating expatriates seldom use one rental realtor exclusively.  With the internet, they can become very good at locating realtors and owners. 

Internet portals cater to owners and agents providing free information. This will be one main reason why your advertisement in the Straits Times newspaper to co-broke seldom get any response as Owners also place the same advertisement. Agents with tenant clientele will, of course, contact Owners direct.

It is possible that there will be realty firms which can harness its power and get most of your prospects in 5 years' time. But nobody can provide that personalised customer-oriented service to prospective tenants that you can. 

The above 2 trends of using the big firms and outsourcing must mean less bread for the self employed realtors.  You can try to solicit to be on the panel of the big corporations catering to the rental needs of their expats and you may be accepted.  Provided you have a good track record of specialization.

Make sure you have the fire in your belly if you want to succeed in this profession.  Hard work, passion and vision are 3 factors helping you to succeed.
