Who Called from the Phone Number (435) 200-5478?

Have you received calls from (435) 200-5478? Well, if so, it's me calling you. You signed up on this website regarding real estate in the Park City area. I have a plan set up to ensure I contact everyone who registers (I know that the registration button is annoying and it forces you to give your email and phone number, but it gives me the highest probability of contacting you and helping you to buy or sell real estate in the Park City area) to make sure they are on the Goldilocks schedule of follow-up. Not so much that you'll get annoyed but enough that it's a quick email or a 20-second phone call to remind you that if you need anything, I'm here for you when you're ready. I never want a client to think I'm one of those agents who never returns a call or picks up the phone. I do my best to contact you to discuss your plan for Park City real estate if you need any information on the market or properties and to see how I can be of service.

Top Reasons People Sign Up on Our Website

"I'm Just looking."

Someone was looking around at real estate and might one day buy a property in the Park City area, but they don't want to be bugged or hassled by a "sales guy." Well, that's fine, but I still want to talk so I can set you up to receive newly listed property from all real estate brokers in the Park City area and get your weekly or monthly updates - it's your choice. People told me this, and we were writing offers within two weeks.

"I'm interviewing Agents."

Great, I'm glad you are interviewing agents so I can show where I shine and outperform the competition. By the third time I call on a regular schedule, you know I'm not just another agent that waits for their phone to ring. You'll understand I'm looking for homes not on the market yet, sellers looking to sell to send to my database of 1,500 real buyers and sellers, or maybe you're a buyer, and now you understand that I'm always searching for new properties for you. My wife might call me a little bit of a workaholic. Still, I'm building a referral business you want to tell people about because you had a great experience buying a property with me.

"I'm Coming to Park City to View Real Estate."

This type of person tends to be my best type of client from my website. If this is you, it means you most likely have been to Park City before, you might have previewed the property previously, but possibly the agent you worked with didn't follow up. I can help you better understand the real estate market about homes or condos by having a few weeks or months to plan your trip. It gives me time to prepare information and paperwork to provide the best showing experience while looking at buying properties. It allows us to have the time to establish a relationship of trust.

Long Time Reader

"I've been looking at your website for a few months, I'm sorry I didn't give you my phone number, and I'm in town, and I want to see this specific property in 35 minutes." This is the hardest call or email to be ready for. I tend to get this mostly around the busiest times of the year, so there's the possibility of owners having family in town for Christmas, a condo being rented during Sundance, or I can't contact the other agent in time to show you the property. This might sound unbelievable, but to provide the best showing experience, I have found it takes me about an hour of prep time to get your buyer packet for every home shown. I can and will show homes on the fly, but it's best to provide the owners with a 24-hour heads-up.

Timing is Everything

While writing this post I received this email from a lead that signed up on www.RealEstateInParkCity.com yesterday.

"Hi Derrik,

Thanks for reaching out. My husband and I just visited park city for vacation and absolutely loved it! We are from Louisiana, and we lightly contemplated moving to Utah once we got home because we had such a blast. I decided to look at housing to get a feel for the price of living, no real interest at this point. If we did move it would be at least a year or two down the road. So at this point, we are just casually looking, but I appreciate you contacting us.

Have a great day,


My reply to Lindsay was very simple, letting her know I actually turned down the frequency she would be getting updates about Park City – I don't want to bombard her with emails and call so she unsubscribes – I'll chat with her from time to time which in this case will be in three months to see if she needs anything. I asked her to please let me know if she needed anything along the way.

It's simple – I try to treat the buyers and sellers I work with the way I would want to be treated. I want to be updated on new listings and what's going on in the market, but I don't want to be emailed three times a day saying, "BUY NOW – BUY NOW!" This isn't a sales letter for someone to try to steal my style – they can try, but I've found very few agents will work as hard as me to make sure a potential client is contacted – but it is trying to reach people that search online the phone number that keeps calling (435) 200-5478. I'm a normal guy with a beautiful wife, two smarter-than-average kids, and a dog. I work hard to reach people who have signed up for my websites. Iensureake sure every buyer or seller has an amazing ex, whether we are dealing with land, condos, single-family homes, or luxury properties.

If there is anything I can do for you, or you want the three calls a week to be once every three, call me back at (435) 200-5478.
