Bill and Kim Cook decided to sell their ranch then live in an RV while they go around to various REI clubs to teach about door knocking. He makes ,on average, 8-10 offers a day when door-knocking and many offers get accepted. His only marketing expense is a little gas to get to the neighborhood. We do have a replay of a Coaching Call of Bill talking about Door-Knocking techniques and strategies. Look in the marketing section of the Premium Training.
Here’s a video of Bill talking about Door Knocking:

If anyone is interested in signing up for one of Bill’s classes and door knocking training, you can reach him at [email protected]
If your town is not listed on the list above, that means that he is not coming to your town. YOu’d need to travel to the towns where he has already made plans.
I might even be able to get him to PANAMA soon!
I attended one of his door knocking days last year and it was fantastic!
I have hit a speedbump recently and would love to hear what you guys have done if this has happened to you.
It seems like more and more often, people are very stand offish when they answer the door, and some have even turned around mid sentence and gone back in their house. I only knock in neighborhoods at the median income level or higher and I’m noticing this primarily in the median level neighborhoods. Is this common? I’d like to keep these neighborhoods on my list because potential profit and buyer base is good, but not a huge fan of the level of rude.
Thanks for any advice, and if you haven’t seen Bill do his thing, definitely go to one of his events.
As I think BC himself would say, stand way back from the front door and walk out into the yard if possible so that the people have to come out of the house to engage with you. Second, don’t start off by saying you want to buy their house, say you’re looking to buy A house and you heard this was a good neighborhood to buy one in, what do they think about the neighborhood? Circle around the question…”Somebody told me that there was a house for sale around here…do you know if there is one on this street?”. I’ve gone around to people with old cars and asked them if they’re interested in selling the car before leading up to asking about the house. Smile all the time. Be polite. Ask permission to talk. Apologize for bothering them.
Bottom line: there’re strange people out there no matter what you do and some people don’t like speaking to doorknockers but the vast majority of people I’ve talked to give me leads or ask me if I want to buy their house.
All of the above ideas I learned from Bill. He’s very good.
This is awesome. I’m hoping to get a couple of them in Wisconsin.
Thanks Jeff, I like those methods. I definitely do stand way back and they’ve come out, but then been standoffish. I definitely don’t mention buying their house unless they say they want to sell and I try to mimic what Bill did when I was around. Guess there might just be some unfriendly people out there lol
I got this message from Bill a few days ago:
Yesterday, Kim got a call from a couple in Seminole, Florida. They accepted an offer I made while door knocking in July 2017.
Two days ago, we got a call from a seller in Austin, Texas. She accepted an offer I made two weeks ago while door knocking in Austin with three investors and a dog!
Last week I got a call from Linsey in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She told me she just took down her third deal that was a direct result from our door knocking there last July.
Message from me:
Door knocking – it works! Give it a try.
Thanks Jackie for Bill’s schedule. I didn’t get the chance to go door knocking here in Vegas. So, I will check him out in another city.
